Courgettes à la Pépé

Print

The first time I remember eating zucchini was when I tried a slice of Pépé’s pan-fried giant zucchini–I fell in love.  The simple flavors come together is a true taste explosion in your mouth. It really is a dish I’d gladly eat all week long!

I’ve since made this recipe countless times, using Pépé’s giant zucchini, but also using traditional-sized ones when he doesn’t have any to give me. This is a great way to prepare patty pan squash as well, so feel free to use whatever you have on hand!

Further Food Commentary:

I applaud your ability to make a side that can be eaten by all! At only 17 calories per 100 g, zucchini is known to be one of the lowest calorie vegetables. You may want to think twice about discarding the peel as that's where all the dietary fiber is, which can help alleviate constipation and provide some protection against colon cancer. In addition, the golden skin varieties are flavonoid rich, specifically containing carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin, which can stave off harmful oxygen derived free radials and reactive oxygen species. While the typical sea salts available in stores vary greatly, the typical composition of seawater used by dry percent includes 55.5% chloride; 30.8% sodium; 7.7% sulfate; 3.7% magnesium; 1.2% calcium; 1.1% potassium.
