Ingredients for 4 people:

4 round courgettes

2 shallots

4 eggs


50 gr of grated parmesan cheese

Extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper


Wash the courgettes and gently remove the cap.

With the help of a digger or a teaspoon, remove the pulp, cut it into cubes and brown it in a pan with a drizzle of oil and the chopped shallots for about 7-8 minutes. If necessary, add half a glass of water. Season with salt and pepper.

Steam the courgette cups emptied of the pulp for 15 minutes (if you have used the steam oven), fill them with the cooked pulp and shallot, add an egg yolk to each courgette and bake at 180° C for a ten minutes (the egg yolk must remain soft).

While the courgettes are in the oven, cook the egg whites in a pan, seasoning them with a pinch of salt and pepper and a few thyme leaves.

When the courgettes are cooked, add the cooked egg white over the yolk and finish with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese and a few leaves of fresh thyme.


  • Freezing Freezing

You can steam the courgettes, stuff them with the courgette pulp cooked with the shallot (or with some other filling, for example you can add a few cubes of bacon or speck to the pulp) and freeze them in the Freddy with the shock freezing function and then keep them in the freezer for up to 7-8 months. If necessary, all you have to do is take the zucchini you need out of the freezer and finish cooking in the oven preheated to 180°C for about ten minutes, possibly adding the egg or the ingredients you like best!

Take advantage of this month to stock up on stuffed courgettes.
