The zucchini fruit is low in calories and contains useful amounts of folate, potassium, manganese and vitamin A. This dish combines the zucchini's refreshing quality with a nutty, flavoursome filling that is light but satisfying.
4 small zucchini
1 1/2 cups red onion, diced
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoons fresh ginger, grated
2 cups carrots, grated
1 cup mushrooms, diced
1 cup broccoli florets, diced
1 cup almonds, finely ground
2 tablespoons tamari
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop out and dice the centers. Reserve the flesh for the stuffing.
In a large frying pan, sauté the onion and ginger in the olive oil over medium heat for 5 -10 minutes. Stir in the carrots, mushrooms, broccoli, and reserved zucchini flesh, and sauté 5 - 10 minutes more. Add the almonds and tamari and sauté for 5 more minutes. Remove from heat.
Evenly stuff the zucchini halves with the sautéed vegetables and place them on a baking tray. Bake for 35 - 40 minutes until golden on top.
