The 5thedition of the „Waiter, there’s something in my…“ 26.09.2023 **event is hosted by Cooksister. All cooks are called to stuff fruit or vegetables. I stuffed courgettes with with bulgur wheat and minced lamb and cooked it in a slow cooker while I was working. Back home I could enjoy it with my son, who arrived on time from school. We were very satisfied with the result:
Bulgur stuffed courgettes
The recipe is simple:
4 courgettes, which fits into your 3.5-l-slow cooker (about 500 grams)
1 small clove garlic, minced
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 tsp. tomatoe puree
1 tsp. pepper puree
1 gram paprika powder
80 grams minced lamb
160 g fine bulgur wheat
2 tsp. olive oil
Remove the end with the blossom and a small „lid“. Using apple corer or small potatoe peeler and working from hollow out each zucchini, removing all seeds and leaving shells.
Mix minced meat with garlic, onion, tomatoe puree, pepper puree and paprika powder until smooth. Add bulgur wheat and at least the olive oil. Stuff the courgettes with the mixture and close with the „lid“. Fix the lid with a wooden toothpick. Give the courgettes into the slow cooker and add about 200 ml water and cook for about 6 h on low. At the end of cooking pour lemon juice over the courgettes. Serve the courgettes with the lemon and cooking liquor.
