The Amazing Zucchini
Technically a fruit, zucchini can be served as a side dish or featured in a main entree.
Zucchinis are an excellent source of potassium, fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin A and manganese. They are high in water content, low in carbs and fat free, and with a seasonal peak in July and August they’re the perfect addition to your summer diet. Due to their mild flavor, this versatile vegetable can be eaten raw, baked, sautéed, grilled, steamed, fried, blended, shredded, breaded and even made into zucchini noodles! “Zoodles” make for a great twist on a traditional salad or replacement for pasta.
