Zucchini

Zucchini

Dark green, yellow, or even upon rarity black in hue, zucchini is a truly marvelous vegetable. It holds an appearance similar to cucumbers and has a juicy inside, more than 90% of which is water. Zucchini can be prepared in many fashions: raw, baked, boiled, sauteed, or even spiralized (lovingly known as zoodles). And zucchini’s nutrition speaks for its versatility: it beholds greats banks of Vitamin C, dietary fiber, folate, and beta carotene (darker skin holds more beta carotene).
