Stuffed courgettes with lamb and feta

By September 17, 2021 , ,

Courgettes are coming to the end of their season and this recipe certainly makes the most of them. Lamb, feta, harissa and courgette are a great combination. The earthy flavour of lamb compliments the punchy harissa and the salty feta cuts through it all. Of course my preference is to cook this on the barbecue which adds even more flavour.

2 courgettes cut in half lengthwise and seeds scooped out of the middle of each half (keep the seeds to one side for the filling)
20ml olive oil

200g lamb mince
75g feta
50g red onion finely chopped
10g fresh coriander finely chopped
20g harissa paste
Seeds from courgettes
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients bar the salt and pepper together
Season to taste with the salt and pepper, it may not need much in the way of salt as the feta is quite salty
Place in the fridge for 4 hours 

Courgette prep
Pre heat your oven/set your barbecue up for indirect cooking at 180c
Fill each courgette half with the filling mix
Place on a baking tray or in a cast iron dish and sprinkle with the olive oil
Bake in the oven/barbecue for 30 minutes
Serve with tzatziki
