Yield: 1 Servings

1½ cup Chopped onion
2 cups Chopped celery
50 millilitres Olive oil
\N \N Pepper (as much as you like)
1 teaspoon Salt

3. Meanwhile, put juice of 2 lemons in a bowl with the egg whites and stir a bit. Put the juice of the third lemon in a bowl with the yolks and stir that a bit (put this in the fridge).

4. After the 25 minutes, add the chopped zucchini. Cook another 5 minutes to soften zucchini. Preheat oven to 180 =F8C . Place zucchini shells in baking dish.

5. Remove mixture from heat. Add parsley, bread crumbs, and egg white mixture. Mix together. Either stuff cored zucchini (rinsing hands often in cold water since mixture will be hot) or fill zucchini "boats" in baking dish.

6. Bake in oven for 40 minutes, covered.

7. Remove from oven, get yolk mixture from fridge. Add any juice in pans to yolk mixture while stirring. Spoon this mixture over the top of the stuffed zucchini. Bake for 5 more minutes.

Author's Notes:

Here's a recipe I tried last night (from Laurel's Kitchen). Since I didn't have some of the ingredients on hand, I substituted carrots for celery and pearled barley for the rice. It turned out ok.

By the way, Laurel's Kitchen also has more zucchini recipes (it's at home, and the above is from memory). If you don't have LK yet, buy it.

Difficulty : easy. Precision : measure ingredients.
