zucchini, ends trimmed
2 (6 ounce) cans
tuna, drained and flaked
tomato, finely chopped
dry bread crumbs
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Tried making it with 1 large zucchini. To anyone that does that in the future...skin the zucchini before stuffing and baking it! :) Once the skin was off, it was delicious!
The whole thing sounded bland, so in addition to the optional tomato, I added 1 big clove garlic, a few dashes each of parsley, marjoram, and Tabasco. I pulsed everything in the food processor to make it easier, and it turned out fine. Rather than drizzling with olive oil, I sprinkled the tops with panko before baking. I also sprinkled on a little grated parmesan during the last 10 minutes.
It STILL wasn't very flavorful, and the whole thing had a funny metallic taste to it despite using a good brand of tuna. I won't be making it again.
I made this for me and my fiancee and we LOVED IT. It was so different but it turned out great.
This was pretty tasty & easy. I pureed the zucchini flesh in a food processor -- easier than mashing I think. Also, I used quinoa instead of flour, then added a little almond flour because the filling seemed too thin. The texture was great. Great way to use zucchini as a main dish. It was a little bland- I think I undersalted it. Improved with more salt & a little hot sauce on the side!
Was Surprisingly quick and easy, baking took the longest and i has it all cleaned up before i even put it in. And Tuna and zuchini definatly tasted alot better than i thought it would woohoo!
We liked this -- quick and easy with a "comfort food" feel. I added 1 tsp chili powder for flavor.
I did not like this recipe at all. Oh well.
I made this for my family last night and they loved it I added my personal taste to this recipe cause i thought it was kind a plain instead of dry bread i added thin crisp bagels in crumbs, added queso fresco, mayo, mixed veggie can, corn and instead of the chopped regular onion i added sliced Mexican Onion, and some sliced chile serrano..I would do this again I Loved it!!
