I love courgettes. They are delicate, versatile & low in calories. They are easy to find and inexpensive.
They are rich in water, and contains vitamins B group, like folates, vitamin B6 and riboflavin, and they are also rich in minerals like potassium and manganese. Below you can find three lovely and tasty courgettes recipes, to keep you inspired.
Courgettes, peas, rocket & mint soup
This Peas, courgettes, rocket & mint soup is delicious and very versatile. It is cooked with no fats, which give you the choice to decide what type of fats or topping you want to add: I always go for some drops of anti-inflammatory rich extra-virgin olive oil, but you can also add some feta cheese for more of a strong taste or if you prefer some drops of coconut milk. Pumpkins seeds are also an option if you would like to add more zinc to your diet or if you are vegan.
