This is an independent dish and a side dish at the same time. At the same time, stewed zucchini is equally tasty both hot and cold.


  • 2 medium zucchini;
  • 1 carrot;
  • 2 tomatoes;
  • 1 bell pepper;
  • 1 onion;
  • 2 cloves of garlic;
  • 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil;
  • 2 tablespoons of tomato paste;
  • salt and black ground pepper – to taste;
  • 1 bunch dill and parsley.


Wash all vegetables. Peel the onions, garlic and carrots, if necessary, remove the peel from the zucchini. Remove the seeds from the pepper.

Grease the pan with sunflower oil. When it warms up, send the chopped onion and garlic passed through the press to fry. After a couple of minutes, add chopped tomatoes and tomato paste to them. A few minutes later – straws of peppers and carrots, and then – diced or striped zucchini.

Vegetables need to be constantly mixed. If they don’t release enough liquid and start to burn, add some water. After laying the zucchini, salt, pepper and cover the pan with a lid.

Simmer over low heat for 5-7 minutes. A couple of minutes before readiness, add chopped greens.

A hearty and simple dish that also looks spectacular on the table.


  • 3 small zucchini;
  • sunflower oil for frying;
  • 1 onion;
  • 1 carrot;
  • salt and black ground pepper – to taste;
  • 500 g minced meat;
  • 1 bunch of parsley;
  • 1 bunch of dill;
  • 50 g hard cheese.


Wash the zucchini and cut into pieces 3–4 cm high. The larger the diameter of the vegetable, the lower the “barrels” should be. Remove the pulp with a spoon or knife, leaving the “bottom”. Do not discard the pulp.

Fry onions and carrots in sunflower oil. At the end, salt, pepper and add the zucchini pulp and minced meat. Better – beef or a mix of pork and chicken or beef. Purely with pork will be too greasy. When the meat is browned, add chopped greens.

Fill the zucchini with stuffing. Lay out on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Sprinkle each “keg” with grated cheese and bake for 25-30 minutes in an oven preheated to 180 ° C.

  • 1 egg;
  • salt and black ground pepper – to taste;
  • 100 g hard cheese.
