A simple recipe for zucchini and rice. It gets its great flavour from the fresh dill and is served with a garlic yoghurt sauce.


Serves: 4 

  • 1/4 cup (60ml) olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 zucchini, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 1/4 cup (60g) uncooked long grain white rice
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) water or vegetable stock
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups plain yoghurt
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:50min 

  1. Heat the olive oil in a frypan over medium heat; cook and stir the onion until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the chopped zucchini, dill, and rice. Cook and stir until the zucchini is softened, about 5 minutes. Pour in the water, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer the mixture until the rice is cooked, about 20 minutes. Turn off the heat, and let the mixture cool to lukewarm.
  2. Make a sauce by mixing the yoghurt, garlic, and salt in a bowl. Serve over the lukewarm zucchini and rice.
