Stuffed Zucchini

Ready in 20 minutes flat, this recipe for stuffed zucchini is perfect for happy hour (instead of chips) or as a side with your meat dishes. In other words, these little bites are as versatile as they are delicious!


  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 75 mL (1/3 cup) roasted red peppers from a jar, drained, rinsed, patted dry and chopped
  • 120 g (1 cup) Armstrong Old Cheddar Shredded Cheese
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 30 mL (2 Tbsp.) bread crumbs


  1. Cut each zucchini into 8 slices 2 cm (3/4 in) thick.
  2. With a small spoon, scoop out some of the flesh from each slice to create a small cavity. Take care not to pierce the bottom. Keep the zucchini flesh for another recipe.
  3. In a steamer basket, steam the zucchini slices for 4 minutes until they are cooked al dente.
  4. Rinse under cold water and drain well on paper towels.
  5. In a bowl, combine the peppers, Cheddar Cheese, salt and pepper. Place some stuffing in each zucchini slice and arrange on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with bread crumbs.
  6. Preheat the broiler.
  7. Broil for 2 minutes or until the cheese is melted and golden brown.


* To get 8 uniform slices, start by cutting the zucchini in half. Cut each piece in half and then cut each quarter in half again.
