greek stuffed zucchinis ("Papoutsakia")

Prep: 5min | Cooking: 50min

Complexity: 2/5


(serves 2)

  • 2 large zucchinis

  • olive oil, salt, pepper

  • 150g ground turkey or beef

  • 1/2 tsp paprika

  • 1/2 tsp oregano

  • 4 cherry tomatoes or 1 small tomato, diced

  • 50g feta, crumbled

  • 1 egg

  • 25ml milk or cream

  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, plus 1 tsp

  • 1/2 tsp spearmint


Heat oven to 200°C. Cut zucchinis lengthways in half, and spoon out the flesh, leaving roughly 1/2 - 1cm of the zucchini halves. Place them in a baking dish and drizzle with olive. Season with salt (ca. 1 tsp) and pepper. Cook in oven for 25 min.

Meanwhile, heat a little olive oil in a pan, and fry the ground meat of choice until browned, ca. 5 min. Season with paprika, oregano, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

In a bowl whisk the egg and milk, then add the tomatoes, feta, ground meat, breadcrumbs (reserving the extra 1 tsp), spearmint, salt (ca. 1/2 tsp) and pepper.

Add the filling to the zucchinis, and sprinkle the reserved breadcrumbs on top.

Return to oven for 20 min.
