Stuffed zucchini in yogurt sauce

October 20, 2013  • 

Definitely comfort-food, Lebanese-style;  these are available already cored and neatly wrapped in all large supermarkets; all one has to do is quickly stuff them, parboil them and finish them off in a yogurt sauce;  the pulp is great for making fritters.

A vegetarian version of this dish could be rice and mushrooms and lots of herbs; just be sure to season the stuffing liberally otherwise it will end up bland.  The recipe for the classic version is here. The other classic version of this dish is served with tomato sauce.

There is a Syrian version (I believe) of this dish which combines these with a green bean stew. I will definitely try it next time.

    I love the idea of stuffed zucchini with a yogurt sauce… I have to admit I find the Italian version pretty boring so I never make it even if I live there.

    Ooh would love to try stuffed zucchini. Is the yogurt sauce supposed to be hot or cold? Seems like one of those things which would taste delicious either way!

    I would love to have this recipe. I grow zucchini & in season, these would be great to make. I cannot get to the recipe. I read the previous comments & cannot find a clickable highlighted word to take me to the recipe.

    Thank you so much. I have some ground lamb in the freezer so I think I will make this even though I will have to get zucchini at the store.

      @Jihan: I checked and I am going to fix the problem. The recipe was initially published in 2009, I believe and I am looking for it right now.
