Quinoa Courgette

Posted on Posted in Main dishes

Garden is full with courgettes right now so I have to come up with lots of courgette recipes. They are light and tasty, perfect for summer.

I like to sprinkle them with spices, roast on olive oil and eat them with bread but I like filled courgette too so I made an easy quinoa-filled courgette recipe. I hope you will like it as I do.
