The Gardening Project have been very busy and managed to grow some huge marrows:
So we decided to use them and make stuffed marrows.
First we cut the marrows and took the seeds out:
We then put the marrows in a pan of boiling water and let them simmer for a few minutes to soften them.
We then started to make the stuffing.
We used turkey mince, onion, garlic, cumin, herbs de Provence, coriander, parsley, fresh chili’s, carrots, chicken stock, salt and pepper.
We cooked the onion, garlic, chili and carrot until soft then added the turkey mince. Once this was cooked a little we added the some salt and pepper, the cumin and herbs de Provence.
We then added the chicken stock and parsley and coriander and let the mixture simmer for about half an hour.
We then put the mixture in the semi cooked marrow:
We then sprinkled grated Parmesan cheese on top and put in the oven to finish off cooking.
We served the stuffed marrow with cous cous and a fresh salad with cucumber, tomatoes, lettuce and feta cheese.
The group enjoyed this dish and experimenting with different flavours.
Also the group want to say a big thank you to the gardening project for growing such wonderful marrows.
