Courgettes are 95% water. For that reason, we can certify that although it is a nutrient-dense food, it is very low in calories. It is rich in phosphorous, magnesium and calcium, making it particularly suitable for those who have a vegan diet.

We are used to adding it to purees and creamy vegetable soups, but it should ideally be eaten raw or steamed, to preserve as many nutrients as possible.

In this post, I’d like to invite you to prepare 2 courgette recipes that are really easy to make.
