Seasonal Super Food: Courgette

Eat the flowers or fruit

Eat the flowers or fruit

According to Natural-Home Remedies, zucchini is full of nutrients, good for the heart, prevents an enlarged prostate and has anti-inflammatory properties to help with pain. The copper in this fruit also aids in treating arthritis issues. As an added bonus, this fruit can be consumed entirely: the fruit, the plant and the flowers.

So if your courgettes are starting to take over the veggie patch don’t give them away get healthy with a bit of creative cookery! You can fry with garlic, roast, slice for the BBQ, chutney, boil, make in to ratatouille, use in soup, or a stew. And if pleased with you efforts please film your culinary expertise and add your video to our KIS Cookery section.

    Getting about 5kg every other day from my yellow courgette plants. Best meal so far is use slices of round courgette instead of pasta in lasagne. Sauce made from courgette and tomato mix of course.
