Feta and walnut stuffed courgettes

This stuffed courgette recipe will make a great centrepiece to your table!

Vegan, nut free, gluten free, soy free | Serves 3 | MAIN

Ingredients:

  • 6 small courgette (zucchini) or 3 large
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 150g rice (Baldo, Karolina or risotto)
  • 100g vegan feta (I used GreenVie foods)
  • 50g walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 25g sultanas, roughly chopped
  • A handful of fresh parsley, chopped
  • A handful of fresh mint, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry oregano
  • 400ml veggie broth

Steps:

1.Cut the edges of the courgette (and cut it in 2 pieces if using large ones). Cut a slice of 1cm of each courgette to use as a lid. Then use a spoon to remove the flesh.

2.Chop the flesh in small pieces.

3.In a wide pan on a medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil along with the onions, spring onions, garlic clove and the courgette flesh.

4.Season with a generous pinch of salt and sauté for 5-6 minutes or until translucent, stirring occasionally.

5.Add the rice and sauté for a minute or so, before you add 100 of veggie broth.

6.Once the broth has been absorbed, turn off the heat.

7.Crumble the feta, add all the herbs and spices into the mixture along with the walnuts and sultanas and mix well.

I like to serve it with salad, Greek style plant-based yogurt and bread!
