Zucchini is one of the most versatile vegetables. A lot of yummy and healthy dishes can be made of it. It pairs well with almost anything. I prefer round zucchini for this stuffed zucchini recipe as because of their shape they are easy and perfect for stuffing.

This hearty recipe has a little twist of tikka, the zucchini is first stuffed with chicken tikka mince and cheese and then baked until tender. This recipe is a delicious way to get even the pickiest eater to eat their vegetables and this is definitely a recipe you’ll want to make again and again!

For Non-Meaty Version:

Instead of chicken, use mushrooms, lentils, beans, eggplants, carrots, peas, peppers, tomatoes, couscous or rice.

Recipe Notes:

  • It’s better to select small zucchini for this dish because their centres are so soft and look so pretty. The larger ones are full of seeds.
  • You can use minced beef, mutton or turkey instead of chicken.
  • Use any cheese you have on hand. Feel free to adapt the recipe to your liking.
  • If you don’t have access to round zucchini, use the long regular ones. Zucchini boats taste equally good.
