Happy Friday! Today I made these tasty stuffed courgettes and now I want to share this easy recipe with you. Stuffed courgettes are a healthy treat for the end of the week and perfect for enjoying the evening with good food. Somehow I think stuffed courgettes are luxury even though the ingredients are affordable and it is relatively simple to prepare these. These would also be perfect for a spring or summer buffet as it is easy to make bigger amounts if needed.
Quinoa and Veggie Stuffed Courgettes:
1,5, dl quinoa
3 medium size courgettes
100 g cherry tomatoes
0,5 dl fresh basil
2 garlic cloves
0,5 dl Kalamata olives
2 tbsp lemon juice
Salt and pepper
Step 1. Cook the quinoa as told on the package. Mince the onion, paprika and carrot. Slice the cherry tomatoes.
Step 2. Split the courgettes in two. Carve out the inside. Place the courgettes on a baking tray.
Step 3. Sweat the onion, paprika and carrot with oil on a frying pan. Add in the tomatoes and contents from courgettes. Let cook until the veggies are a bit soft.
Step 4. Mix together veggies, quinoa, chopped olives, minced basil and garlic, lemon juice, salt and black pepper. Stuff the courgettes and bake in a preheated oven in 200 Celsius degrees until the courgette covers become softer. Serve with crumbled feta cheese.
Have a Wonderful and relaxing weekend!
