Easy Zucchini Feta Roll Ups – VIDEO RECIPE
how to cook Easy Zucchini Feta Roll Ups?
To begin, preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Start by washing the zucchini and cutting off the stalks. Then, slice the zucchini lengthwise into thin strips.
TIPS: Both zucchini and courgettes can be used for this recipe.
TIPS: If you want very thin strips of vegetables, you can use a vegetable peeler or a special grater.
Next, briefly dip the zucchini strips in salted boiling water for a few seconds.
Once the zucchini becomes slightly soft, remove them from the water and rinse with cold water.
Now, cut feta into small bars.
TIPS: Don’t have feta cheese? No worries! You can easily replace it with any other type of cheese.
Take 2-3 strips of zucchini and wrap it around each feta bar.
Grease a baking dish with vegetable oil and place the zucchini roll ups in the prepared dish.
Put the dish with the roll ups into the preheated oven at 180°C (350°F) and bake for around 6-7 minutes.

TIPS: Wondering how to remove the skin from tomatoes? It’s simple! Start by making a shallow crosswise cut on the tomato. Then, place the tomatoes in a bowl of boiling water for about 15-20 seconds. After that, remove them and rinse with cold water. Now, you can easily peel off the skin.
In a frying pan over high heat, pour some vegetable oil. Then add the chopped tomatoes. Allow them to simmer for 2 minutes, then season with salt and pepper.
Transfer the tomatoes to a small bowl and blend them with an immersion blender until smooth.
TIPS: Don’t have an immersion blender to make tomato puree? No problem! You can use a kitchen chopper, a meat grinder, or even a regular fork to achieve the same result.
To serve, pour a small amount of the tomato sauce onto a plate and place the zucchini rolls on top.
