Stuffed Courgettes with Apricots and Chia Seed came about when I discovered Piccolo Courgettes by pure chance years ago when and thought about combining them with chia seeds. I had a friend came over who needed cheering up and this dish did the trick – at least, I hope so. I love these Stuffed Courgettes with Apricots and Chia Seed because of the tantalising tastes that melt in the mouth.
