Round courgette stuffed with minced beef and rice

Stuffed Courgette

What makes me happy is a good food. It’s not only the way how the meal looks like but also how it tastes. It’s an eye pleasing and satisfactory for the belly.

It’s a courgette/zucchini season so I got the idea of making stuffed courgettes.


– 4 rounded courgettes
– 300g rice
– 500g of minced beef
– parsley
– 2 onions
– 1 garlic glove
– pepper and salt


Cook the rice.

For the stuffing:
Put the pan to a medium heat. Melt the butter. When butter foams, add grated onion and garlic, and season it with salt, pepper. Stir 1 minute, add minced beef. Simmer until ready, add shredded parsley.

When the meat is getting ready prepare the courgettes. Wash the zucchinis and cut them in half. Using a spoon, scoop out the flesh.
