Loaded Courgettes


These are super easy and are great way to get your friends and family to eat the courgette!

I took 3 courgettes and cut them in half lengthways, lay the courgette out on a tray.

I then scored the flesh in a criss cross pattern and sprinkled some salt on top, this is going to help draw out the water that courgettes hold, and trust me they hold a lot of liquid.

After about 45 mins of this I wipe the salt off with a paper towel.

What comes next is rather a spur of the moment decision, I had some tomato sauce on hand so I spread that across the courgettes then sautéed some onions and garlic, layering this on top of your tomato sauce on the courgette finish it off with some grated cheese salt and pepper.

I baked these in a moderate oven of around 175’c for 15 mins as you want the courgette to soften and the cheese to melt, but not too far!!

If you have a super speedy oven maybe make the temperature even lower and cook for longer.

You can use pesto, chilli, mushrooms, ground beef that you pre cooked, options are endless, get creative here!


If you have any questions please reach out.

lots of love cupcake xx
