7 Courgette Recipes Your Children Will Love

Courgettes (or Zucchini) are prolific in the UK from June to September. They have a high water content, significant levels of Vitamin C and potassium and are a good source of soluble fibre (which reduces risk of constipation and promotes a healthy bowel).

They are a member of the cucurbit family, and are related to watermelons, gherkins and cucumbers.

Their pretty edible flowers are delicious stuffed with goats cheese, herbs and tomato and deep fried.
