Cheese Zucchini Boats

Cheese Zucchini Boats

The first time I made these zucchini boats with cheese was because I wanted to use a few zucchinis forgotten in the fridge. Of course, I didn't want to complicate things much, they were easy and fast to cook and, to be honest, I didn't have high expectations - I wasn't really in the mood. It was love at first bite with this cheese zucchini boats - they are great, the taste of feta combines perfectly with the texture of baked zucchini.

Another great thing about these zucchinis with cheese - they are loved by the children! And I tested the recipe on a really fussy kid when it comes to vegetables. The kids eat them with the hand - I cut the boat in half, cooled, and it's perfect for them. Cheese zucchinis are good as main course, snack, appetizer or side dish.


3 pieces
Feta cheese
200 g
Yellow cheese
100 g
2 pieces
Ground black pepper
0.25 tsp
optional, or other of your favorite spices

Step by step


I had three courgettes - thin-skinned and medium-sized. Don't pick them too big or "old", their skin is hard and the boats will be giant :)


Trim the ends off, then cut each zucchini in half lengthwise.


Using a teaspoon, scoop out the zucchini flesh - careful not to break the shell!


Now we have 6 boats ready to fill.


If the zucchini flesh is tender and doesn't have seeds yet, I store it in bags in the freezer - it will be perfect for soups or meatballs in winter.


Crush the white cheese with your hands, add the grated yellow cheese, the 2 eggs and a little ground pepper according to your preferences.

Carefully stir the mixture with a fork or spoon.


Pack this filling in the zucchini boats, arrange on a baking sheet - I don't oil it, I just place the boats on the baking sheet.


Bake for 30-40 minutes at 200 degrees C, until nicely browned.

Remove from the oven, let rest for another 15-20 minutes.


Serve them as such or with any garnish you like. They can also be a side dish for fish, meat, salad, whatever you prefer.

We all loved them, I highly recommend!
