Like you all probably know already I really like courgettes and I like filled courgettes as well. I like that it is a complete dish, looks very good and usually it is very delicious (maybe because we always fill the courgette boats with what we feel like eating on that day).
Today I am presenting one recipe that is very traditional in my family, I have eaten it since I was a girl and now I like preparing it for my loved ones.
Try this easy and not time consuming recipe of Filled Courgette Boats with minced beef.
I’ve decided to fill the courgettes with a satiating, warm, wholesome filling – mince beef, onion, tomatoes, so that to get a really warming dish that would satisfy the hungry mouths at home after the long day they’ve all had.
Hope you like it as well.
Filled Courgette Boats with Mince Beef
4 medium courgettes/zucchinis
200gr minced beef
4-5 tomatoes, cut in small pieces
2 onions, cut in small pieces
seasoning – black pepper, dill, parsley, paprika
2-3tbsp olive oil
Cut the courgettes in half lengthwise and using a spoon remove the seeds, cut them in smaller pieces and keep for later
In a deep pan, over low-medium heat, heat the olive oil and fry the onion until brown, add the minced beef and fry for 5 minutes
Add the tomatoes, courgettes seeds and seasoning and keep on the hot-plate for 10 more minutes, stirring occasionally, until it thickens and the liquid disappears
Place the courgette boats in an oiled tray and spoon the filling
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200°C for 25-30 minutes, until the top gets well baked
Plate the courgette boats and serve with a salad.
I used a fresh tomato, spring onion and feta cheese salad.
