"A great vegetable dish that can be used as a centerpiece or as a side. Can be lovely when served with tomato based sauce and a green vegetable, or I have even had them with traditional roasted vegetables at Christmas." — jackie

These are fabulous. I can't believe this recipe doesn't have more reviews! The real secret to making this great is that you need to food process the filling until it's smooth. My friends and especially my finance and his family LOVE this recipe. Definitely worth trying. It does take a little time, but it's SO worth it!
Flavours were all wrong, the flesh of the zucchini didn't cook because the dish wasn't covered, and the filling on top got a bit too crispy. Would not make again.
This is fabulous! My husband and I are trying a low-cholesterol, low-far diet, and this satisfies both requirements beautifully. The taste is almost 'meaty', and one 107-calorie serving is a meal in itself.
My husband and I loved this dish. I used a little less coriander and added about 2 TBSP curry and an extra garlic clove.
It didn't have an Indian flavor at all. I sprinkled it with shredded Parmesan cheese before serving. The salt of the cheese was perfect. It cooked for a good 40 minutes.
This dish is definately a new favorite! Really simple, and SO tasty! I used a melon baller to remove the flesh from the zucchini with ease and had the excess stuffing in pita bread for lunch the next day!
I make almost the same recipe, only I add minced onions, sausage, mushrooms, Italian bread crumbs, salt and pepper. I heap the mixture onto the zucchini. Sometimes I used yellow zucchini. It's a whole meal.
This recipe turned out really well. My favourite part was the presentation. I love chickpeas, but i think it could stand to have a little less. I also think that the coriander was a little much for me, i don't really care for the taste of it, so i would either eliminate it or add a lot less. Unlike the other reviews, i liked the cumin and actually added half a teaspoon extra. Would totally make this again!!!!
It had very interesting taste. I served it with cous-cous. I used less than half of zucchini flesh. Next time I will use more mushrooms, zucchini flesh and lemon juice and less chick peas. Thank you, Jackie, for an interesting recipe!
