Feta and Tomato Stuffed Courgette (Zucchini)

Feta and Tomato Stuffed Courgette (Zucchini)

Summer nights and eating al fresco is one of my favourite pastimes. Summery food (and a cold glass of wine) and I’m happy. These large courgettes were grown by my sister in law, I didn’t manage to get round to growing any vegetables this year, but these are still very local!

Simply stuffed with feta, tomatoes, garlic and red pepper, this feta and tomato stuffed courgette made a great meal, served with salad and crusty bread. I wonder if you wrapped them in foil if you could cook this on the barbecue? Must try it out.

I’m never quite sure what what stage courgettes become marrows. Do you have any idea? This was what I would call a very large courgette, it was still green like a courgette, the skin was not yet thick and it wasn’t bland like marrows can be.

The flesh from the courgette is scooped out and then used as part of the filling, so nothing goes to waste. Just add some more basic ingredients from the fridge, and then put it in the oven.

The recipe is also easily adaptable to other ingredients you have in the fridge – I used red pepper and cherry tomatoes here, but chunks of sweet potato, butternut squash or sweetcorn would also work well.

Add some tinned tuna or cannellini beans to the filling to make it go further but without changing the Smartpoints value!

Ingredients

  • 1 extra large courgette zucchini or marrow
  • 1 red pepper
  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1-2 tsp dried oregano
  • 50 g light feta

Instructions

  • Cut the courgette in half so you have two flat pieces.
  •  Scoop the flesh out of the centre and put it in a bowl. 
  • Put the courgette halves on a baking tray. 
  • Chop a red pepper, slice the cherry tomatoes, crush the garlic and add them to the bowl.
  • Season with salt and pepper and add 1-2 tsp dried oregano.
  • Spoon the filling back into the courgette halves. There may be too much filling for the courgettes, if so pile it high.
  • Crumble the feta over the stuffed courgettes.
  • Bake at 180 degrees for 45 minutes.
    Serve with crusty bread and salad.

Oh wow these look so good Lucy. Will definitely give this a go on the BBQ.

These sound amazing Lucy, I’m always there when feta is included šŸ™‚ I can imaging that they’d be absolutely great on the BBQ too.

These look lovely! Anything with Feta cheese works for me. I stuffed a round courgette and a pattypan squash last week. Life is definitely not too short to stuff veg!!

This seems really simple and perfect for summer dinners. Can’t wait to make it.

I do love stuffed courgettes! Yours look gorgeous, and healthy too. Our plants haven’t fruited this year though. šŸ™
