Stuffed Marrow

I’ve been on holiday, but return with delicious stuffed marrow.

This was created by myself and Vegan Pirate at Jodi’s place. I have to mention Jodi so she feels included, but creative credit goes to us.

Marrow are giant courgette, or, if you live in the US they’re giant zucchini.

When in season you can pick up a marrow for just $1.

You stuff them!

INGREDIENTS

1 marrow
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
Two slices of pumpkin
1/2 capsicum
1-2 cups rice
2 teaspoon vegetable stock
4 handfuls crushed, salted peanuts
Tahini sauce
1 tablespoon oil
Salt
Pepper
Tomato Relish

INSTRUCTIONS

Cook rice, but add vegetable stock to the water (a rice cooker is ideal for this). Scoop out the insides of the marrow, chop and set aside. Cook pumpkin in microwave, remove skins and mash. Now construct the stuffing. In a frying pan, cook garlic and onion until transparent. Then add two handfuls of the inside of the marrow (more for a large marrow), chopped capsicum, peanuts, pumpkin and 1 cup of cooked rice (more for a large marrow), then fry. Salt to taste. Once cooked press the stuffing into the marrow and pile on top. Press stuffing into a rounded shape and drizzle with tahini sauce, then sprinkle with pepper. Bake until the marrow is al dente, and test it with a knife).

Serve with tahini sauce, relish and a side salad.
