It is a question that I can’t find an answer. I bought one zucchini the other day and it is the first time I ever buy a zucchini because I do not know how to cook it.
So I went searching on the net for recipes but none tells me if I need to remove the dark, hardy green skin.
In the end, I skinned it. After that, I am not sure if it can be eaten raw. (roll eyes) So, I blanched it along with my other vegetables like the broccoli, white button mushroom and asparagus.
Then, I mixed the vegetables with some low fat cottage cheese, olive oil and black pepper and bake it till the vegetables appears cooked.
I call this my vegetables lasagna.
So, do I remove the skin of zucchini? And can it be eaten raw? Tell me, please? ‘Cos zucchini is quite a ‘meaty’ vegetable that goes well with baked food.
