Episode 12: Filled Zucchini
In this 12th episode of Rianne's Recepten, a dish that's on the cover of Rianne's own cooking book... Suffice to say, that this filled zucchini is highly recommended!
ingredients (serving 4) 2-3 Zucchini 1 large onion 2 cloves of garlic 3 bell peppers 1 bag of Rösti (small potato bits) (or replace with 500 gr shoarma) 200 gr Crème fraiche 1 bag of grated cheese 1-2 TB smoked (!!!) paprika 1-2 TS cayenne Salt & pepper (or add garlic powder if you forget to put in the garlic like moi) Instructions
Put a large pot with water on the stove, bring it to a boil. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Cut the onions and garlic in small pieces, cut the bell peppers in somewhat longer strips (I like that texture) Fry the onion, after a minute or 2 add the garlic. Add the bell pepper and fry on a medium to (quite) high heat – make sure to get some colour (i.e. brown to black spots) on your vegetables. Add the spices, except the salt. Then add the potatoes and salt to taste. Fry until (almost) done. Add the crème fraiche and heat through. (meanwhile) Half and hollow out the zucchini. Use a spoon for this! Boil the zucchini for 3 minutes (don’t do it any longer or it will overcook in the oven!!!) Fill the zucchini with the vegetable filling and top with the cheese Bake in the oven until cheese has melted (about 10-15 minutes)
