Zucchini is one of our most requested vegetables, and for good reason! Zucchini is very versatile, cooking well in both sweet and savory dishes. It grows quickly and has the most flavor when picked smaller. Overgrown zucchini is best used for baking. We harvest zucchini daily as it is a very productive plant.
Zucchini is high in vitamin C, potassium, folate, and vitamin A making it great for eye and heart health. It is also high in fiber, making it very filling and great for weight loss. It also helps reduce overall inflammation caused by chronic disease. The skin of the zucchini contains most of the nutrients.
We often have to get a little creative to use the zucchini quickly because of the rate it grows. It can be grilled, made into noodles, or shredded for baked goods. For long term storage, shredded zucchini freezes well. Below are a few of our favorite recipes!
