"This is a quick and fun appetizer or light lunch served with crusty bread! You can use as much or as little olive oil as you like, but I suggest a good "glug" on each!"

directions

  • Boil a large pot of salted water (not the dead sea, but put in a couple of TBSP of salt).
  • Cut the zucchini in half, lengthwise. Use a teaspoon to scrape out the seeds, to form a little canoe, if you will. Blanche the halves in the boiling water for a minute, remove and let drain on a paper towel for a few minutes.
  • Pre-heat your broiler/grill on high.
  • Fill each "canoe" with feta cheese (you don't have to use the whole cup up, but put a good amount in each) and broil for a couple of minutes. When the cheese has turned a little brown in spots, remove from the broiler.
  • Drizzle each with a TBSP of olive oil, a sprinkle of pepper and salt if you like, and serve with crusty bread (I like ciabatta, rubbed with garlic and a little olive oil.).

    Delicious! I hated to waste the inner part of the zucchini (I only had 3 small ones to start) so I added a half tsp each minced garlic and basil pesto, a little salt/pepper and dash of olive oil, then microwaved in a small bowl until soft but not mushy. I loaded the zucchini with this mixture first then topped with feta and a little more olive oil before broiling. My husband loved it as a side with our baked chicken.

    This was very good and so elegant-looking. I blanched the zucchini in a little water in the microwave instead of on the stovetop. I wasn't serving this with bread, so instead I sprinked a little bit of dried seasoned breadcrumbs atop the feta. I served this as a side dish. Very delicious.

    Oh my gosh!!! Feta Cheese and Zucchini - two of my favorites. So simple and so delicious. I did not even add any salt to the water, although before I broiled them I added a little salt and pepper along with the olive oil, and they were perfect. Thank you!!!

    I doubled the recipe and we were still fighting over who got the last one. So simple to make. The flavors blend together beautifully. I did not blanche the zucchini first, and since my broiler was out of commission I just put them in the oven at 450 degrees. Worked great! Next time I will need to triple the recipe.

    So simple yet so delicious! This gets two big thumbs up from us. I sprinkled mine with black pepper and maroccan spices. This is going to be made over and over again at our house. Thanks for the recipe
