Gefüllte Zucchini

Ingredients

1
day-old bun
4
medium-size zucchini
1
small onion
1 bunch
parsley
300 g
ground beef
1
egg
1 tsp
medium-hot mustard
pinch
nutmeg
to taste
salt and pepper
1
clove garlic
1 small can
tomatoes
1 tsp
oregano, grated
100 g
Emmental cheese, grated

Directions

Soak the bun in some water. Wash the zucchini, and cut zucchini in lengthwise pieces. Remove seeds and with a spoon scoop out ‘flesh’.

Peel onion, and, together with zucchini flesh, cut into small cubes. Wash and dry parsley and chop finely.

In a bowl, mix the ground beef with onion, parsley, zucchini flesh, egg, mustard and spices. Squeeze out the bun and add to the ground beef mixture, and mix into a ‘dough’. Fill the zucchini halves with the filling.

Finely chop garlic and tomatoes, then add tomato juice, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Pour this tomato sauce into a shallow baking dish and place the zucchini on top. Sprinkle with cheese.

Do not pre-heat oven. Put into cold oven and then bake at 200 C (400 F) approx. 1 hour.

Serve with baguette and enjoy.
