stuffed zucchini boats

hey guys, it's been a while, i knooow... but i haven't had much time lately because i've been working a lot and stuff... but here i am again. :)
so today i'd like to share a new favorite of mine: the

zucchini boats stuffed with rice, tomatoes and ground beef!

They're delicious and easy to make, too.
So here it goes:

STUFFED ZUCCHINI BOATS (equals two servings)


all you need is

  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 small onion and 1 clove of garlic, diced
  • 100g ground beef 
  • 1 big tomato, diced
  • 1 cup rice
  • 100 ml (1/2 cup) vegetable broth
  • 1 tbls. crème fraîche (or any other sour creme)

cook the rice as indicated on package.
cut the zucchini lengthwise. remove the kernels with a spoon and hollow out the zucchini boats. put into a casserole dish and set aside.

heat some vegetable oil in a large pan and gently roast the onion and garlic dice on medium heat. add the ground beef and tomato dice, roast gently.

now, in a large pot or bowl, combine the beef-tomato-mix and rice.
fill into the zucchini boats (see picture below). 
line the casserole dish with remaining beef-tomato-rice-mix.

preheat your convection oven to 180°C (350°F).
heat the vegetable broth and add the crème fraîche. blend well and pour evenly over the zucchini boats.
cook in your oven for about 30 minutes.
et voilà, bon appétit! ;)
