Zucchini has got to be one of our favourite vegetables. It’s such a great all-rounder and has a permanent place in our fridge (when it’s in season). Delicious alone, with sauce, alongside meat or in a quinoa salad – this veg is a winner in our books.
Autumn is upon us and that means Zucchini season, they are in abundance, so what should you look for when purchasing a zucchini? The general gist of my research is to look for one that’s not too long, without bumps and blemishes. It should also look a bit shiny and have firm skin.
We all know where to get our zucchinis from. Do you know how to best store them? I have scoured the internet and the best tips seem to be:
1. Store in a fridge for four days at the max (or keep them for nearly a year in the freezer!)
2. Don’t wash till you’re ready to eat.
3. If it starts to look a little wilted or loose some of its brightness, eat it right away.
To kick off Autumnal eating this year I made an enormous Frittata jam packed with veggies, it really conjured up the seasonal feeling.
