Wild zucchini originated in the Americas but was first cultivated domestically in Europe. It eventually found its way back to the U.S. in the early 1900s. With a very mild flavor that is both a little sweet and a little bitter, zucchini is a go-to “hidden” vegetable for plant-forward dishes designed to subversively add more vegetables into a healthy diet. Zucchini pairs well with black pepper, tomatoes, and red bell peppers.
Low-calorie zucchini is high in nutrients for adults and babies, including potassium, manganese, folate, riboflavin, thiamin, vitamins C, B6, and A. It may support cellular, skin, hormonal, and immune health.(1) It’s also a nutritious addition to canine diets, as it provides dogs the same nutrition benefits as humans.(2)
