Useful tips

To prepare aromatic dishes from zucchini in the oven, it is important to choose the right vegetable. The advantage when buying is to give zucchini small size, the optimal length of up to twenty centimeters.

The skin should be firm and smooth without dents and dark spots, which indicate that the vegetable begins to rot.

Small zucchini is ideal for roasting, because unlike large specimens, they have small seeds, soft flesh, and tender skin.

Large zucchini very well suited for stuffing. In the preparation of stuffed zucchini, all large seeds are removed, and the vegetable itself is fairly well baked in the oven. Enjoy your meal!
