Cooking time: approx. 45-50 minutes.
Step 1: Harvesting and Washing
To make a bowl, you will ideally need a round zucchini (in this case, we used a hybrid "eight-ball" variety), although you can also create zucchini "boats" by cutting traditional (oblong) zucchinis lengthwise using the same concept.Try to pick zucchinis of the same size so everyone can get a fairly equal portion. If it is a good, melon sized zucchini, you can usually count on one feeding two people, so try to estimate how many you will need to harvest based on that.
Finally, wash them thoroughly (especially if they are from the grocery store).
