Zucchini is a hearty summer squash that is pretty nutritious and extremely versatile for cooking or baking. Zucchini tastes mild with a gentle sweetness and a hint of grassiness from the peel – which is ok to eat by the way. The flavor of the peel does have a stronger taste the thicker it gets, which happens with larger zucchinis so choose a smaller size or peel it if you want to avoid that.
Zucchini has high fiber content and a low-calorie count making it ideal, like most veggies, for weight loss.
