Zucchinis are exceptionally high in water and goes soggy easily and for this reason, light stir frying or baking without added water is the best cooking method.

One of the best uses for zucchini is as a low carb alternative to pasta, so slice in strips, lightly saute and enjoy with your fav pasta sauce for a tasty, low carb dinner choice.
