Vegan stuffed courgettes
January 22, 2017
Round courgettes are the perfect variety if you want to try your hand at stuffed vegetables. Together with potatoes and tomatoes, they make this dish healthy and also appealing to children.
Instead of meat-based stuffing, I used ready-made soy proteins. You can also use vegetables, ready-made vegetable stuffing, or even tofu steaks which you will first chop in small pieces.
I use a slow-cooker but you can also use a crock pot or the oven.
- Prep: 10 mins
- Cook: 30 mins
- Yields: 4
1Wash the courgettes and cut the top off
2Spoon the inside out and put aside
3Heat olive oil up in a wok and add the onion, pepper and courgette bits - fry for 10 minutes on medium heat
4Add the soy, herbs and tomato sauce, as well as the stock cube, which you can pre-dilute
5Let it simmer for another 10 minutes and add a little bit of water if needed so that the stuffing remains moist.
6Stuff the courgettes and replace the top
7If using your slow cooker: place the courgettes in the steam basket and steam for 20 minutes, don't forget 200ml water at the bottom.
8If using the oven, they will be ready after 30 minutes at 200 degrees.
