A new recipe for courgettes! Stuffed with feta

At this time of the year I am always on the look out for new recipes to try to use up the courgette glut. Last night I made a pot of  stock using chicken carcasses from the freezer, and I will use that to make courgette soup for the freezer.

imageFor dinner I made stuffed courgettes, using a recipe I found in an old student cookbook and which I adapted slightly. I really enjoyed it, but Mr S was looking for the meat! Next time I will add chopped bacon to stop him feeling deprived.

Stuffed courgettes

4 medium courgettes
2 cloves garlic
1 red onion, chopped
8oz sweet corn
2 large eggs
2 tbsp milk
3oz feta cheese

Preheat the oven to 180 C. Halve the courgettes lengthways, carefully scoop out some of the insides to make room for the stuffing and arrange in a baking dish.

Put all the other ingredients apart from the feta into a food processor with some salt and pepper and whizz it, then crumble in half the cheese. Stuff the courgettes with the filling then crumble the rest of the feta on top. Bake for about 40 minutes.
I think this would be nice served with a tomato sauce or just as it is with salad and new potatoes. We had it with rubber beans as that is the other glut.

If you have recipes for the courgette glut, please bring them on!

  1. Oh… YUM!!!! Thank you, thank you! I currently have a glut of courgettes and have been trying to come up with recipes to use them in. One I did recently was a “lasagna” using thinly sliced strips of courgettes in place of the pasta (sliced thin lengthwise) with a minced beef and lentil mixture (brown the ground beef with onions and herbs, add dry lentils & water and boil until lentils are soft), tomato sauce and cheese. Your recipe sounds MUCH faster and easier!

  2. I add two cups of shredded courgettes (zucchini) to spaghetti bolonase sauce, it adds a nice mellow flavor to it and a few extra vitamins!
