Did you know that one zucchini plant is enough for a family of four? One zucchini plant will yield, on average, three to nine pounds of zucchini. It produces over and over again. So much so, you might even find yourself with a surplus. Don't fret; zucchini is great in everything, from soups to breads, to stir fry and even desserts. They can be steamed, boiled, grilled, stuffed and baked, used as pasta, barbecued, or fried. The flowers, which are considered a delicacy, can be eaten in soups, stuffed, or fried with tempura. Being rich in potassium, folic acid, vitamin A, and only about 17 calories per zucchini, they can be a guiltless pleasure.
