5 small zucchinies, washed
150 ml hot water
2 tbsp crushed tomatoes, canned
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
150g medium ground beef
2 tbsp rice, washed and drained
3 green onion, chopped
50 ml water
Garlic Yogurt Sauce:
1/2 cup yogurt, plain
2 tbsp dill, chopped
1 garlic clove, mashed
Wash the zucchini and cut off a thin slice of the bottom of each one, so that they can stand up straight. Cut off the tops (as in the picture) and carve out the insides.
Mix all the filling ingredients with a teaspoon and stuff the zucchini. Leave some room at the top. While filling the zucchini, don't push the filling in, instead tap the zucchini vertically on the counter. Place them in a small cooking pot.
Mix the hot water, crushed tomato and olive oil and pour into the pot from the side. Cover and cook for about 20 minutes at medium heat.
Place the Stuffed Zucchinis on a serving platter. Pour some of the sauce from the pot on top of them. Serve with Garlic Yogurt Sauce.
Don't throw away the zucchini tops and insides. Grate or cut them into small pieces and make Zucchini Pate :)
