When preparing savory dishes that require cooking remember that zucchini tolerates high heat very well. The trick to drawing out excess water (to prevent soupy dishes) is to cut the zucchini as the recipe dictates (sliced, quartered, etc), transfer into a colander and then salt it. Allow it to rest for 10 minutes, then roll the pieces onto paper towels or a lint-free cotton cloth to dry it.

Smaller zucchini is best for most recipes calling for slices or spears as the flesh is firm and browns nicely without becoming mushy. Larger courgettes are better suited for grating, grinding or shredding into cakes, relish, muffins, etc where the texture isn’t as important to the finished product.
