    LifeIsGood's Note:

    A flavorful side dish or vegetarian meal. I think it's a tasty way to use up those garden zucchinis! Credit due to Jeff Smith, a great chef. Read ingredients list and make sure to prep your rice and onions. Enjoy! Note: I use less of the spices than Jeff Smith - just a personal preference.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Cut the zucchini in half, lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds. (Keep the skin on.).
    3. 3
      Mix the cooked rice with the browned onion, salt, pepper, lemon juice, allspice, cinnamon and dill.
    4. 4
      Stuff the zucchini boats with the rice mixture.
    5. 5
      Pour the tomato sauce into a baking dish, then place the filled zucchini boats face up into the dish. Do not cover the zucchini with the sauce.
    6. 6
      Cover and bake at 350 degrees F. until tender but firm, about 50 minutes, but check sooner, like the 45 minute mark. You don't want the zucchini to get too limp. (If halving the recipe, lessen the cook time a bit.).
    7. 7
      Serve with a few spoonfuls of the tomato sauce drizzled on top.

      This is fantastic! I thought cinnamon and allspice sounded a little odd, but nope, the combination is spot on and this is a great dish. I'm going to put it in my "good enough for company" cookbook. It's super easy to make, but it has just enough pizazz that it looks like you fussed over it. Only one caution, the zucchini is a bit limp after cooking, so use two forks to lift it out of the pan without spilling. :-)

      I missed the instruction in step 6 to cover this, so the rice on top our zuccs was a little crunchy-that didn't spoil the yummy flavours in there though. This is a great, simple recipe that I'll make again before my zucchini are finished in the garden.
