Zucchini may not be on top of your list when preparing lunch or dinner. It wasn’t on ours, either. Do you remember the first zucchini dish we loved? It was Cheese on Board, one of the first post I wrote when I started this blog. We started to have zucchini more often with that recipe. And this one is yet another great zucchini dish (learnt from mom). It is unbelievably tasty! The spices or very thin slices may have a great role on its taste. Maybe it is the yogurt sauce on the top. I don’t exactly understand how it turned out to be a favorite dish of us, but I am so happy that we’ve discovered another great way to have this healthy vegetable. You know it contains fiber, which is very important for digestion. Besides, zucchini contains potassium, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, sodium and iron. Doctors advice zucchini to those trying to lose weight as it is very low in calories. It is also recommended to new moms as it increases the amount of their milk, which is great for their newly born babies. As you see, its benefits are countless. So why don’t you cook this zucchini dish for your next meal?
