Easy-peasy stuffed zucchini

By 17:30 , , , ,

It also (kind of) rhymes! Honestly, these are so so easy to make (max 30 min prep time) but delicious.

The ingredients are:

  • couscous
  • zucchini
  • cherry tomatoes
  • olive oil
  • pinch of salt
  • parmisan cheese (not in the pic, I forgot :/)

For the couscous:
for how many grams of couscous you want to make, you need the same mls of water plus a tablespoon or two more. Usually I cook couscous in a pan with water (like rice) but I was feeling especially lazy today so I just poured it in a bowl, poured a tablespoon of oil and sprinkled some salt and mixed it up. Then I set some water up to boil in a tea boiler, poured it in the bowl until it covered the couscous and covered the bowl with a plate to keep it warm, letting the couscous absorb the water, for 2-3 mins.

Use this time to cut up your zucchinis and remove the pulp inside with a spoon (you can use it for soups, sauces, whatever).

The couscous will be ready in the meantime: cheating brought to the same result = cooked couscous. Now that I know this, I will never get a pan out again! (washing up pans is the worst.)

Then cut up some cherry tomatoes and mix them up, if the couscous is a little dry feel free to add some oil or salt if you need it.

Messy part: stuffing.

Then sprinkle some parmisan over it to form that crunchy layer on top.

 Close up is needed:

Then pop into the oven at 190 degrees for 30 mins (until the zucchinis are cooked, because the couscous already is).

VoilĂ !
