Mediterranean Stuffed Zucchini with Sabra Hummus

Mediterranean Stuffed Zucchini


Ingredients

  • Zucchini
  • Hummus – I prefer using Sabra Hummus and we used the Spinach & Artichoke flavor to go with our Mediterranean flavor, but you can choose any flavor
  • Sun-Dried Tomatoes (in a jar)
  • Grilled Artichokes (in a jar) – cut into small pieces
  • Bell pepper (we used yellow, orange & red) – cut into small pieces
  • Olives (we used black olives, but Kalamata olives are a great option or whatever is your favorite) – cut in half or quarters
  • Fresh thyme
  • Fresh parsley
  • 2nd option:
  • Zucchini
  • Hummus – use any flavor you like, I used Sabra Hummus Spinach & Artichoke flavor
  • Sun Dried Tomatoes
  • Grilled artichokes (fresh or jarred)
  • Feta Cheese
  • Bell pepper (we used yellow, orange & red) – cut into small pieces
  • Olives – cut in half or quarters
  • Grape Tomatoes – cut in half or quarters
  • Red Onion – cut in small slivers
  • Fresh thyme
  • Fresh parsley

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Slice off part of the zucchini. How much you slice off will depend on the size of the zucchini. If it’s a smaller zucchini like I used, I just sliced off the first quarter length-wise. When these are in season & bigger, you can cut them in half length-wise & still have enough support to hold your hummus & all the toppings.
  3. Scoop out the middle of the zucchini using a spoon or melon baller (leaving enough around the edges and ends to be able to support your stuffed zucchini). Discard the flesh of the zucchini or save for zucchini bread
  4. Fill each carved out zucchini with your choice of hummus (we used the Sabra Hummus Spinach & Artichoke flavor). Fill it to the top of the zucchini
  5. Add your toppings – get creative with the toppings you choose.
  6. Place in a baking dish or baking sheet with a rim (size will depend on how many zucchini you are making)
  7. Bake for 10-15 minutes (we baked the small zucchini for 10 minutes which was perfect, but the larger zucchini may need more time)
  8. You can add the feta cheese at the end if you’d like to broil it for several minutes or until brown. {Or just bake it from start to finish, which is what we did.}
  9. Sprinkle with parsley and thyme (or your favorite herbs) and serve hot.
