ZUCCHINI SQUASH STUFFED WITH MINCED BEEF

SERVING : 4

INGREDIENTS
1 kg medium size zucchini squash
1 tablespoon margarine
3 large tomatoes or 50 gr tomato paste
1 soupspoon dill, chopped
1 tablespoon salt

MEAT FILLING
500 gr minced beef
2 tablespoons margarine
2 medium size onions
3/4 cup rice
1 soupspoon dill, chopped
2 medium size tomatoes, peeled and cut into small pieces
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

PROCESSING METHOD
– Chop the onions and brown them lightly in margarine. Add washed rice and 3/4 glass water. Cover and cook on medium heat for 10 minutes, until the water is absorbed.
– Remove from heat. Add the minced meat, dill, tomatoes, salt and pepper. Mix them well, kneading for about 5 minutes.
– Choose short and rather thick zucchinis. Peel them and cut the ends off. If they are too large, cut them in half. Cut out conical caps from the larger end of each one. Hollow them out with a knife, taking care not to pierce them.
– Stuff them with the meat filling and close the open ends with the caps. Place them in a flat pan.
– Add margarine and 1 glass of water. Cover and cook on medium heat for 20 minutes.
– Add 1 tablespoon of salt, tomatoes peeled and cut into small pieces (or the tomato paste dissolved in 1/2 cup of water) and 2 glasses of water.
– Cover and cook on medium heat for 20 minutes more, until they are tender.
– Arrange them in a serving dish and decorate with dill leaves.
