Finally a terrific way to make excellent use of the huge zucchini that take over my garden this time of year. Best of all? Versatile. There are any number of great recipes to use for ‘stuffing’ the zucchini.
Here’s the basics:
Take a large zucchini 12-18″ long and slice in half lengthwise. Using a sharp-sided spoon, remove the seeds, leaving a hollowed out squash. Load up with your preferred stuffing, put the other half on as a lid, and wrap in aluminum foil.
Shown in the photo is a combo of couscous and sausage which I tried while camping. It would have been better with a layer of shredded cheddar.
Our favorite stuffing so far was a taco blend with ground beef and black beans. That balanced well with the slightly sweet flavor of the zucchini and we’ll definitely do that one again.
Have you tried zucchini this way? Any tips or advice? Any favorite stuffings? Please share!
