Zucchini obsession

Zucchini obsession

Added to a stir-fry, curry, cake or fritter, cut in rings, julienned or grated – zucchini happens to be an extremely versatile vegetable! It is also commonly known as baby marrow or courgette and belongs to the squash family. These vegetables can grow to quite a length – almost 1 meter, but because they are picked while the seeds are still soft, at around 15 cm, they are termed “baby” marrows. I share many recipes with zucchini, but this particular one is just tossed in pureed tomatoes and served with naan bread – quick and nutritious!
