Healthy courgette pan

Healthy courgette pan recipe idea

I would like to introduce you to a healthy, simple and easily adaptable recipe with courgettes.

Good flavour, a soft skin and creamy, juicy flesh make courgettes an ideal summer vegetable. Although you can buy it all year round, it tastes best in mid-summer.

Courgettes originate from Mexico and come in many varieties, varying in shape, size, colour and flavour. The best taste comes from fruits up to 15 cm long.


Like all vegetables, courgettes also have health benefits. The energy value of 100 g raw courgette is only 16 kcal 😉.

Courgette contains 3.4% carbohydrates, 1.2% protein and 0.2% fat. Of course, they also contain minerals such as manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, iron, zinc and calcium. The same applies to the vitamins: vitamin C and vitamins of the B-complex are present.

Courgettes are also characterised by their abundance of dietary fibre.
