Stuffed zucchini with ground turkey

I had stuffed zucchini at a friends house in Greece. Just loved it. It was easy and delicious. I really like the twist at the end with a egg lemon sauce on top. So I created this recipe based on my friends recipe with with olive oil and ground turkey and NO rice.



5-6 green zucchini

1 onion

2 garlic cloves

Chicken broth (1 cup)

Extra virgin Olive Oil

1 few fresh mint leaves

ground turkey DSC04408

egg sauce (avrolemono) : 1 egg + 1 lemon

1. DSC04407 Grind 1 onion, 2 garlic cloves and some mint leaves

2. DSC04410 Add to the ground turkey. Mix. Add salt & pepper to taste.

3. DSC04411 Wash your zucchini and cut in the middle.

4. DSC04412 Remove the inside of the zucchini half with a spoon. I used a grapefruit spoon. DSC04413

5. DSC04414 Add to the meat mixture the inside of the zucchini cut in small pieces.

6. DSC04416 Stuff the zucchini half’s with the meat mixture.

7. DSC04418 In a big saucepan, add 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive oil. Add the zucchini ins the sauce pan. Add some chicken broth. Cook.

8. Take one egg, one lemon juice and mix in a bowl. Add little by little some chicken broth from the dish. It will make a lemon sauce – add on zucchini and serve.

You can add rice to this dish – you would add about half a cup of rice to your meat mixture.
