What’s GREAT at the Market this Week?
After such wonderful rain the farmers who grow zucchinis will have them bursting out of their skins. Did you know that although the ZUCCHINI is used and enjoyed as a vegetable, botanically, zucchinis are fruits, a type of botanical berry called a “pepo”!! So let’s try some new “pepo” recipes this week and enjoy this low calorie vegie.
On hot days it is delicious spiralized and used with a pesto dressing and some olives. Served over a rocket base – or any mixed greens as a base it makes a cooling and delicious easy to prepare lunch or vegie accompaniment to dinner.
For our Zucchini Muffin Recipe visit our Recipes and Tips page.
Fresh local zucchini is available from the following market stalls: Cecil Farm, Everest Farm and Jumping Red Ant.
