Tuna Stuffed Kamo Kamo

Carole's Chatter: Tuna Stuffed Kamo Kamo

So what is a kamo kamo, I hear you asking?  I had never seen one before either until very recently.  This is a New Zealand vegetable – it's a type of squash – think a large zucchini but more robust and nutty tasting.  It is also known is kumi kumi.

To prepare the kamo kamo for stuffing just halve it longways and scoop out the seeds.

Stuffing ingredients:

Canned tuna (drained)
Cherry tomatoes
Chopped spinach
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Topping – grated cheese

Just pop the stuffing into the kamo kamo, top with grated cheese and roast in a moderate oven for about the same time as a potato would take.

Very nice for lunch.


  1. I've never heard of kamo kamo either. But I really like the idea of stuffing a squash with tuna. Sounds like an easy dinner.

  2. This is why I love reading Weekend Cooking post, you learn so many new things.

  3. So many kinds of squash, so little time!

  4. I have not encountered this squash before but it looks like an easy and interesting dish.

  5. Kamo kamo kumi kumi -- I like it! Nice to meet a new vegetable here. Thanks, Carole!

  6. It looks as large as a watermelon but I see, once you stuffed it that's it a big zucchini like squash. I like tuna so, I would try this.

  7. I haven't seen kamo kamo before, but I love all kinds of squash and tuna. I'll look for this the next time I'm at the store.
