I made this for me and my fiancee and we LOVED IT. It was so different but it turned out great.
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.
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!
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.
Tuna Stuffed Zucchini Haiku: "On the fence with this. On one hand, it was healthy, but a bit too bland." I ended up melting grated cheddar on mine b4 eating it, in the hopes that it would be like a tuna melt, but something still didn't jive w/ me on this recipe. I'd even added garlic and a dash of Sriaracha to the tuna mixture, after reading some of the reviews, but we weren't too terribly impressed. Happy to have tried it though b/c I love zucchini in all its forms!
