Vegetarian stuffed zucchini

Vegetarian stuffed zucchini |

I wish that I could write some family anecdote to go with this dish but my head is somewhere else. I’m on a Game of Thrones marathon, I already stayed up all night to watch Season 1, I probably should get some sleep soon but, after posting this, I want to finish Season 2. And, when I’m done with Season 3, I’ll probably be reading the books on which the series is based. I already checked Amazon and the first four books (Kindle for iPad version) are available as a set. After that, I’ll have to get the fifth book separately.

So there. No anecdote nor backstory about this dish. Just stuffed zucchini recipe.

    Hi! thanks for sharing this recipe. I love zucchini and I’m looking for other ways of cooking it. I don’t have an oven, so I’m thinking of grilling this. Would it be okay to grill, instead of bake? :) Thanks!

    Hi Connie,
    I’ve been cooking zucchini every summer in our cottage and we have like loads of it in our garden. I usually cook it with butter and chantarelle mushroom or just a normal mushroom na gusto mo then pan fry lang sya. But e fry ko mna sya para ma brown ng konti by batches tapos yong mushroom afterwards para maluto lang ng kunti then isabay ko na lahat season with salt & pepper and a little dash of maggi mix hehe.. ang sarap.
