What’s so good about courgette?

Courgette is an excellent meal component thanks to its versatility

A member of the Cucurbitaceae family (making it a fruit), courgette is closely related to watermelons, squash, and pumpkins. Courgette (also known as zucchini) can be roasted, fried, baked and even spiralised to replace spaghetti for those wanting to partake in a low-carb diet. In addition to its versatility, courgette also has a wide range of health benefits, including being rich in vitamin A, C, calcium and zinc and an antioxidant (meaning it protects your body and helps prevent certain health issues). In addition to this, courgette may also aid digestion, slow down ageing and support a healthy heart.

Fun fact! The longest courgette on record measured in at a whopping 8 ft 3.3 inches long, making it much taller than the average human!
