Home » Food » Recipe: Simply Stuffed (Round) Zucchini

On Wednesday I had the opportunity to spend an incredible day with Farmers Feed Cities. We started off the tour with a visit to Quiet Acre Farms in Niagara on the Lake, where we had an up close and personal visit with their peach orchards.

Peaches, Peaches, Peaches!!

But what caught my attention were these round zucchini at their roadside stall.

Bought Two. What was I thinking?

It was exactly the type of inspiration that I needed to get back me into the kitchen, seeing as I have done ZERO cooking for the last month. Have you noticed my blog posts (recently) have been about every topic except recipes? Well that has all changed. This trip really inspired me.



1 round zucchini

1/2 a container grape tomatoes, cut in half

small chunk of feta cheese

8 black olives (I like Unico ripe oil cured…in a jar)

1/2 onion, chopped finely

1 garlic clove, minced finely

Italian seasoning


1. Slice the top off the zucchini and scoop out the inside.

step one

2. Fry the onions and garlic till aromatic . Then add the grape tomotoes, olives, italian seasoning till everything is kinda soft.

Oh So Good.

3. Stuff into the hollow space of the zucchini. Top with some crumbled feta. Bake on a baking sheet in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes. Voila…dinner.

Perfect for My No Carb Diet

Please note that I’m on a no carb diet, otherwise I probably would have added some bread crumbs to this recipe.

If you see these round zucchinis at a farmers market – please pick some up!! You won’t find these in a grocery store. I promise you. For more information about farmers markets, please click here.

Upcoming Blog Post: Canning Peaches!! Stay tuned.

    Hi Vicki. Met you at the Quiet Acre Farms and you gave me your card. I am making the stuffed round zucchini recipe tonight with a herbed trout fillet. Have never seen round zucchini and not bad for a dollar each! My wife has already canned the peaches.

    Happy blogging

    Carbs or no carbs, this sounds great! Would be such a nice dinner party app…may make it actually when I have friends for dinner next week. Will probably be followed by a carb heavy pasta main!
