Turkish-style Zucchini Gratin

(Kabak Graten)

Turkish-style Zucchini Gratin
3 small zucchini

Filling:
1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1 tbsp fresh dill and parsley mixture, chopped

Topping:
1 tsp butter
1 tbsp flour
100 ml milk, warm

Peel the zucchini. Cut them half in lengthwise. Make a slit around the seeds with the tip of a small knife. Remove and discard the seeds with a teaspoon. Mix the filling ingredients with a teaspoon and fill in the zucchini equally.

In a small pot, melt the butter, add flour and mix them with a wooden spoon. Slowly add warm milk and stir. If you like, you can whisk it. Cover the zucchini with this topping.

Place parchment paper on your oven tray. Arrange the zucchini on it. Preheat the oven 190 C (400 F). Cook for about 25 minutes until the tops are golden.

This is served as an appetizer. You can also serve this dish with Pilaf with Tomato as a light lunch:)

6 servings.

What a great and easy recipe! I only added finely diced shallot (sort of onion) to the filling and it was delicious.

I found your website when I was looking for some other turkish recipe and I added it to my RSS feeds. This feature I appreciate very much because this way I won't miss any new recipe on your website. Thanks a lot!

For this dish. Should I peel zucchini the way I peel patlican??

At the same time, is this peeling in lengthwise strips obligatory? does it help a dish in some way, or we are just up for a nice presentation:)? greetings

Hi,
I don't like to peel the zucchini, I love to see its dark rich green colour:)
