I LOVE courgettes – or should I type ‘zucchini’ which is what we call them in Oz and here in the US! 💗  These baby ones are sweet n’ juicy, packed with potassium (about 295 milligrams per cup) which makes them super heart-healthy, definitely one of my fav things to eat because of their versatility when it comes to how you can flavour and prepare them. Did you know also they’re technically a fruit because they come from a flower which you can also eat? True story!

Here’s what I’m going to make with these…
