When rice starts to get tender, remove pan from heat and stuff the zucchini with the mixture.

Place the zucchini in a baking dish with 2-3 cups of water and cook on low heat for approx. 40 minutes.

In a soup bowl, beat the eggs and slowly add the lemon juice, continuing to beat with a fork.

While beating, slowly add the juice from the baking dish.

Pour the sauce over the stuffed zucchini and serve.
