Wonder Wednesday: What Are You Doing with This Summer’s Bounty?

I have a big mess of Zucchini that I stuffed with Feta and Dill…

Here’s how

  • four 1/2-pound zucchini, scrubbed
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 pound Feta cheese, crumbled
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh dill

Trim and discard the stem ends from 2 of the zucchini, halve the 2 zucchini lengthwise,

and with a melon-ball cutter scoop out the flesh, reserving it and leaving 1/4-inch-thick shells. Arrange the shells, cut sides up, on a steamer rack set over simmering water and steam them, covered, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until they are just tender. Invert the shells on paper towels to drain.

Cut the remaining 2 zucchini crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. In a non-stick skillet cook the onions in the oil over moderate heat, stirring, until they are softened, add the reserved flesh, chopped, and the zucchini slices, and sauté the mixture over moderately high heat, stirring, until it is golden. In a food processor blend the mixture with the Feta until the zucchini slices are chopped coarse and stir in the dill. Divide the filling among the 4 zucchini shells, arrange the stuffed zucchini in an oiled flameproof baking dish, and broil them under a preheated broiler about 4 inches from the heat for 3 minutes, or until the filling is bubbling and deep golden.

I got the idea for this post from MKG who posted how she made Peach/Hot Pepper Jam.

What are the rest of you doing with summer’s bounty?

  1. The squash and etc.really don’t appeal to me, but most of the other things we grow in our gardens is just wonderful. I love fresh cucumber, and oh my, fried okra!!!! Fresh tomato’s and so many other things. We only grow tomato’s here at the house, but the farmers market had all the other fresh garden stuff. I love this time of year because of that. And this has been a good year with the extra rain we have had and the “not so hot” temps.
