Courgettes, a versatile vegetable. Perfect for stuffing and baking
The courgette, or zucchini, is a member of the cucumber family. Many different varieties of courgette are available, ranging from the baby, the round and the golden courgette through to the light-green ones. The best-known is the (dark) green courgette, which is harvested just before the vegetable is fully ripe. The courgette has a very mild taste, which makes it great for carrying other flavours. When using courgette for a dish, first wash it thoroughly. Don’t worry about peeling it, just remove the little crown. A courgette can be stuffed, as in this recipe, or diced or sliced. Courgette can also be eaten raw, such as in a salad, and becomes all the better if you use a dressing and give it some time to be absorbed by the courgette. Stuffed courgettes with seitan and garam masala spices and parsley are a winner, and the courgette is perfect for stuffing.
