Zucchini resembles a cucumber in shape and has numerous seeds. It is one of the most versatile vegetables there is; it can be used in different recipes ranging from fritters to cheesy tots. It can be enjoyed both raw or cooked, and its low-calorie content makes it the perfect side dish for a heavy meal.

Health Benefits

Zucchini has more potassium than a banana and has no cholesterol or unhealthy fats. It contains antioxidants such as lutein, carotenes, and zeaxanthin, which help slow down ageing. 100g of zucchini yields the following:

  • Vitamin A – 4% of DV
  • Vitamin C – 28% of DV
  • Calcium – 1% of DV
  • Iron – 2% of DV

Selecting tips

  • Smaller is better; look for zucchini that is 6- to 8- inches in length (no larger than a regular-sized flashlight) and are relatively thin
  • Look for zucchini that have a good chunk of the stem attached as they will last longer
  • Select zucchini that feel heavy and have smooth, dark green skin free of blemishes
