In the abandoned garden, I had a good surprise : the last zucchini of the season, and two huge old and ripe zucchinis. Usually when the zucchini are longer than 20 cm they are used to feed the poultry.
Well, as my motto is not to waste anything, I took them under the mocking eyes of MadameCitronVert's family.
I was curious about the taste of those old zucchinis, would they be stringy and inedible?
At first look the evident way to prepare them is to stuff them.
For the stuffing : ground beef, some bread crumbs, a chopped onion, a fresh egg, olive oil, chopped parsley, salt and pepper.
I found at the bottom of the freezer two little fresh chorizos (spanish sausages), and decided to add them into the stuffing.
Cook the onions with olive oil without browning them.
Mix the cooked onions with all the other ingredients and then stuff the zucchini. Add some drops of olive oil over the stuffing before you cook it in the oven at 180 °C for 40 minutes. Add one or two glasses of water
It was pretty good even if the chorizo dominated the taste of the stuffing, zucchini was not stringy at all but rather tasteless.
I used half of the second zucchini a couple of days later in a fish curry, and it was much better, zucchini was more tender and had absorbed the taste of curry and coconut milk.
