Cheese Filled Zucchini
(Peynirli Kabak Dolması - Istanbul)
2 small-size zucchinis
Inside of the zucchinis
1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
4 tomato slices
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
Pre-heat the oven to 400 F (200 C).
Cut the zucchinis lengthwise in half. Make a slit around the seeds with the tip of a small knife. Remove the seeds with a teaspoon. Do not discard! Mix the filling ingredients with a teaspoon and fill in the zucchinis equally. Drizzle the olive oil and place the tomato slices on the tops.
Place parchment paper on your oven tray. Arrange the zucchinis on it. Cook for about 25 minutes until they are softened. Sprinkle some chopped dill and drizzle olive oil over the tops.
Serve the dish at room temperature or chilled.
