Stuffed Zucchini

Be sure to pack stuffing tightly in the zucchini shells so it doesn't fall out as it cooks.

Stuffed Zucchini

Source: Everyday Food, April 2006


  • 4 medium zucchini, (6 to 8 ounces each), halved lengthwise
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 7 1/2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 pint grape or cherry tomatoes, halved


  1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Using a tablespoon, scoop out zucchini centers to form "canoes," leaving a 1/4-inch border. Roughly chop centers; set aside.

  2. Arrange zucchini, cut sides down, on a rimmed baking sheet; bake 15 minutes. Remove from oven.

  3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium. Add onion and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; cook, stirring, until soft, 3 to 5 minutes. Add chopped zucchini, and cook, stirring, until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat; let cool slightly. Fold in feta and tomatoes.

  4. Turn hollowed-out zucchini cut sides up, fill with vegetable-feta mixture, and bake until top is lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Lift zucchini from baking sheet with a wide spatula, and serve.

    I made this for an Easter lunch sidedish and it was great. Simple ingredients, excellent flavor combination, beautiful, colorful presentation-you can't go wrong. Meat eaters, vegetarian, gluten free diets and kids all loved these babies. Making again for Memorial day and it will definitely stay in my dinner recipe rotation. I do add a few more herbs or some Spike seasoning but great as is as well. 5 stars-thanks :)

    A delicious vegetarian main dish, or as a side dish too. Added some paprika to it for some zip. Delicious!

    I purchased a grocery store Martha Stewart mini-mag with this recipe inside and made it for Thanksgiving and Christmas in 2006. My friend fell in love with it so I gave her the magazine thinking I could find another, to no avail.

    I am so happy to search and find this recipe, finally.

    It's a HUGE hit, even amongst the manly beefeaters!

    When you're asked to bring a side-dish to a semi- schmancy dinner, this is a WINNER!

    Healthy too! 2 points per serving if you follow Weight Watchers.
