Sausage stuffed zucchinis

15 mins of preparation + 35 cooking time 4 servings



Red pepper salsa:

  • 1 red pepper, quartered and seeded
  • 7 mL (½ tbsp.) of honey
  • 7 mL (½ tbsp.) of white wine vinegar

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C).
  2. Arrange the red pepper pieces on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, halve the zucchini lengthwise. Hollow out each zucchini by scooping out enough pulp to leave room to hold a sausage.
  4. Place the zucchini flesh side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper with the sausages and bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. When the red pepper pieces are nicely roasted, remove the blackened skin and chop up the pulp.
  6. In a bowl, mix the red pepper pulp, honey and vinegar and season to taste.
  7. Place the cooked zucchini on paper towels to absorb all excess liquid.
  8. Halve the cooked sausages lengthwise.
  9. Spread a little goat cheese inside each hollowed-out zucchini, add a sausage half and garnish with red pepper salsa.
  10. Transfer to paper plates and eat like hot dogs.
