Stuffed courgettes/zuchinni

Hi, so this recipe I thought of really as I was trying to use up some courgettes and other bits and pieces in the fridge and it turned out really well so thought I'd share it with you...

It's basically courgettes (or zuchini) stuffed with cheese and vegetables, and it is lovely!!

Here's how:

  • First take a courgette (or more) and slice all the way down the middle (longways). 
  • Carefully use a sharp knife to hollow out the courgette as much as you can while taking care not to cut the skin. 
  • Chop up the courgette that you have cut out of the middle and set aside. 
  • Heat some oil in a frying pan, I like flavoured oils ie garlic oil or basil oil but any will do. 
  • Fry the chopped courgette over a gentle heat and leave in the pan frying gently
  • Chop up some mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes and a couple of sundried tomatoes
  • Grate some cheese or crumble some feta or goats cheese
  • Add the mushrooms, sundried tomatoes and spinach to the courgette mix and continue frying
  • When the spinach has wilted and the courgette is looking quite transparent add the cheese and turn the heat down until it has melted into the mixture. Then turn the heat off.
The mixture at this point will look something like this (and will taste lovely!):

  • Spoon the mixture into the hollowed out courgettes and put into an oven dish
  • Pop the courgettes into the oven (sprinkling with a bit more cheese of you fancy) and bake at a medium heat for 30 minutes 
  • Enjoy! 
Hope you like them, they really are delicious!!
