Summer Squash Recipes

With their high water content (more than 95 percent), summer squashes are very low in calories. There are only 13 calories in a half-cup of raw zucchini, with a slight increase to 18 calories in the same quantity cooked. Nutritionally, summer squashes offer valuable antioxidants. They also provide some beta-carotene, trace quantities of the B vitamins, folic acid, small amounts of vitamin C and calcium, 4 grams of fiber per cup and a healthy content of potassium.
 

 
Like all our produce, our Zucchini and Summer Squash are grown using sustainable methods: lots of organic compost.
