Baked zucchini “boats” make a tasty vehicle for delivering a big pile of roast beef, onions, and peppers straight into your mouth, and they’re not bad-looking, either. If you’re a gardener or know a gardener (or you’re within donation distance of a gardener’s front door…) then you might be overflowing with zucchini at this time of year: this recipe puts a slightly different twist on them so they don’t get boring.

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil;
  • Cooking fat;
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper;
