Vegetable: Courgette (Zucchini)

Our good friend and neighbour,Mick,  has once again shared with us more of his bounty from his allotment.  He gave us three humongous courgettes, which is also known as zucchini from across the pond, I believe.

We have enjoyed the veg, cooking it with pork with spicy sauce.  It was so delicious.  I shall be sharing and posting the recipe soon.

Courgette is rich in vitamin C, beta-carotene, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous and potassium.

It is also high in fibre which is good for the digestive system.  It is mildly laxative and diuretic, very gentle to digestion.

Courgette belongs to the same family as marrow, squash, and pumpkin.
