Chorizo stuffed courgettes recipe - Recipes

I am so excited about this week's #SundaySupper theme (hosted by Alice of A Mama, Baby & Shar-pei in the Kitchen and Christy of Confessions of a Culinary Diva) because it includes my all-time favorite vegetable in the whole wide world. Zucchini! Actually it's a Squash Fest, which includes all types of squash like acorn and butternut squash, and also pumpkin (which I adore), but for me it's all about zucchini. It's such a versatile squash, and it's subtle flavor works so well with just about anything, be it sweet or savory.

Now as much as I love zucchini, not everyone in my family feels the same way. (Gasp!) My girls share my love for zucchini, but Hubby and our boys, will only eat zucchini if it's battered and fried (fried zucchini), breaded and baked (zucchini fries), or as part of a dessert. They also eat it in my Homemade Bolognese Sauce, but since I sneak it in there, they have no idea they're eating zucchini. The only time I've seen Hubby and my boys excited to eat zucchini is when I stuff it with Mexican chorizo. They're love for spicy Mexican chorizo combined together with my love for fresh zucchini makes us all one very happy family. And I'm sure you'll be just as happy when you try these Chorizo Stuffed Zucchini.

Chorizo Stuffed Zucchini

  • 6 medium zucchini, cut in half lengthwise
  • 1/2 lb. Mexican chorizo, casings removed
  • 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 to 2 serrano chiles, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 roma tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 8 oz. Chihuahua or mild cheddar cheese

Brown the Mexican chorizo in a medium skillet over medium-high heat, adding 1 to 2 tablespoons of vegetable or canola oil, if necessary. Stir in the chopped onion, serrano chiles (if using), and the garlic saute for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent onion and garlic from burning. Reduce heat to low and stir in the chopped zucchini flesh and the tomatoes season with salt and pepper. Cover and let simmer, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes or until the chopped zucchini is tender. Remove from heat.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Arrange the hollowed out zucchini halves on the baking pan. Fill each zucchini boat with 2 to 3 heaping tablespoons of the chorizo stuffing. Sprinkle tops with the dry bread crumbs and top with grated cheese.

Bake the stuffed zucchini at 350°F for 20 to 25 minutes or until the zucchini is cooked through and the cheese has melted turned a light golden brown. Serve with Mexican Rice or Cilantro Rice Pilaf (recipe coming soon). Enjoy!

Yields 6 to 8 servings

Chorizo Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

2) In a large skillet over medium heat, add the chorizo, onions and garlic and cook them for 7 to 8 minutes or until the chorizo is fully cooked through and make sure you break it up as much as you can with a wooden spoon.

4) While the chorizo mixture is cooking, prep your sweet potatoes by cutting them in half lengthwise and scooping out the flesh leaving a little bit around the edges to help keep their shape. Add the potato mixture to a large bowl, mash it with a potato masher and set aside.

5) When the chorizo is ready, remove it from the pan with a slotted spoon (try your best not to add any of the fat to the potatoes) add the cilantro, scallions, black pepper and about 1 cup of the cheese, stir it all together and divide the filling in the prepared potato shells.

6) Top them with the remaining cheese and roast them for about 20 minutes or until golden bubbly!

Before you jump to Cod, Chorizo & Samphire Supper recipe, you may want to read this short interesting healthy tips about The Simple Ways to Be Healthy.

You already know that, to achieve true health, your diet needs to be well balanced and nutritious and you need to get a good amount of exercise. Sadly, there isn’t often enough time or energy for us to really do the things we need to do. Going to the gym isn’t something people make time for when they get off from work. We want a yummy, greasy burger, not an equally scrumptious salad (unless we’re vegetarians). You will be happy to discover that becoming healthy doesn’t have to be hard. With practice you can get all of the nutritional requirements and the physical exercise that you need. Here are some of the best techniques to be healthy.

Climb stairs. Walk up the stairs to where you live or work as an alternative to using the elevator. Obviously this isn’t as possible if you work on the 25th floor of a high rise, but if you work on the fourth, climbing the stairs is a great way to get some exercise in. If you do work on a super high floor, why not get off the elevator a couple of floors earlier and walk the rest of the way? Lots of people choose the easy elevator ride instead of making an effort on the stairs. Even if you only have just one flight to climb, climbing along it during the day is a great way to get additional exercise.

There are lots of things you can go after to become healthy. An expensive gym membership and very restrictive diets are not the only way to do it. It is the little things you choose on a daily basis that really help you with weight loss and becoming healthy. Make smart choices every day is a great start. Getting as much physical exercise as possible is another factor. The numbers on the scale aren’t the only indicator of your healthfulness. It’s about making your body as sturdy as it can be.

Crispy Cod with Courgette, Red Onion and Chorizo

This dish tastes delicious and will be ready in no time.

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Ingredients Add to Shopping List


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large heavy-based frying pan. Season the cod and add to the pan, skin side down. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until the skin is beginning to crisp. Add the butter to the pan and cook for another 2 minutes, until the skin is nice and crisp. Turn the cod over and cook for a further 3 to 4 minutes, until cooked through. Transfer the cod to a warm plate and keep warm.
  2. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the pan, then pop in the chorizo, courgette and red onion. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until the chorizo starts to crisp. Finish with the lemon juice.
  3. To serve, place the chorizo, courgette and red onion on a plate. Top with the warm cod and serve with boiled new potatoes.

If you want to cook the cod on the barbecue, make sure the barbecue grill itself is good and hot so the fish seals and doesn't stick to it. Season the cod well and rub both sides with olive oil. Place on the hot barbecue and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Alternatively, you could wrap the fillets in a tin foil parcel with a little butter, seasoning and some fresh herbs, then pop it on the barbecue for 6 to 8 minutes.

What is chorizo?

If you haven’t cooked with chorizo before then you are in for a treat! Chorizo is basically a highly seasoned sausage, usually made of pork but it can be beef. When you are at the grocery store keep in mind that you are looking for Mexican chorizo. This means that it will come in a raw sausage/ground meat form and will need to be cooked before you use it. Spanish chorizo is usually a cured or semi-cured sausage that does not need to be cooked. They will not work interchangeably in this recipe. You must use Mexican chorizo!

If your chicken was fresh when stuffed – meaning it wasn’t frozen then defrosted – and it didn’t stay stuffed and uncooked for more than a day, then yes.

Refreezing previously frozen food is safe, despite popular opinion, but it can change the texture and flavor of foods. So for best results, only freeze if the chicken wasn’t previously frozen.

When ready to serve, let it thaw overnight in the fridge and bake as directed.

Perfect Provençal stuffed courgettes

Prep 15 min
Cook 1 hr 30 min
Serves 4 as a side, 2 as a main

4 medium round courgettes or 2 large long ones
2 tbsp olive oil, plus a little extra
1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
2 medium, ripe tomatoes
4 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
80g long-grain rice
150ml vegetable (or chicken) stock
1 large bunch fresh mint
50g finely grated parmesan
Salt and black pepper
2 tbsp dry breadcrumbs
Basil, to garnish

Heat the oven to 180C/350F/gas 4. Cut the tops off the round courgettes, if using, and scoop out the flesh with a grapefruit spoon or melon baller, taking care to leave sturdy walls around the outside if you’ve got long courgettes, cut them in half lengthways and scoop out the flesh in the same way. In either case, roughly chop the flesh, along with the lids of the round kind.

Scoop out the flesh from the halved courgettes, then freshen up the skins in iced water so they don’t go floppy.

Bring a large pan of salted water to a simmer, add the courgettes and blanch for five minutes. In the meantime, prepare a sink full of iced water and, once the courgettes are done, scoop them out of the pan and into the sink to cool down (this will help keep them nice and green).

Heat the oil in a wide pan over a medium-low heat, add the onion, and cook until soft and golden. Meanwhile, cut the tomatoes in half, scoop out and discard the watery seeds, then finely chop the flesh.

Cut the tomatoes in half, scoop out and discard the watery seeds, then finely chop the flesh.

Add to the pan with the courgette flesh and garlic, cook until soft, then stir in the rice, add the stock, bring to a simmer and cook for about 12 minutes, until most of the liquid has evaporated. Meanwhile, pick and roughly chop the mint leaves.

Fry the onions, then add the courgette flesh and garlic before adding the chopped tomato.

Stir the parmesan and mint into the stuffing mix and season to taste. Put the hollowed-out courgettes on a greased baking sheet and divide the filling between them, packing it in well, then cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes.

Stir the parmesan and mint into the stuffing mix.

Toss the breadcrumbs in a splash of olive oil, season, sprinkle on top of the courgettes, and bake for a further 15 minutes. Tear a few basil leaves over the top before serving.

Pack into the courgette hulls, then bake. Finish with a sprinkling of oil-doused breadcrumbs and bake until crisp.
