Zucchini Stuffed with Mint Rice

I love this kind of zucchini because you can stuff it with many kind of ingredients. This time I chose mint rice, because of the fresh taste of mint. Great for a summer hot day! Very easy to prepare.

These I harvested from my garden. I am thrilled that I was able to harvest them, knowing they are organic, and somehow it feels great to eat vegetables that you were able to grow taking care of them.
