I’m an avid zucchini fan; and this time of year, zucchini grows in abundance. Sometimes too abundant, if you know what I mean. My favorite way to prepare zucchini is stuffing it.

Most of the time I use ground turkey, beef, chicken, or pork when I make stuffed zucchini because it reminds me of my mom’s recipe–minus the rice of course. For this recipe, I decided to try something different.

  1. Excellent recipe! I used to make stuffed zucchini when I was younger, and it had rice in it as well. Do you think there would be a good way to use “riced” cauliflower instead of regular rice?

    I do like your addition of feta cheese, and ground chicken. I am adding feta to everything this year 🙂
