Stuffed Zucchini

Our recent trip to the Farmer's Market yielded a lot of veggies around here.   Which meant there were two zucchini's staring me in the face daily...something had to be done.

So I went to town making some stuffed zucchini.  It's an easy and delish dish (that has a nice ring to it :)

Here's the low down--

You'll need:
Zucchini to cut in half long-ways (depends on how many you're serving-- I used 4 zucchini and it made 8 servings)
1 package ground turkey
approx. 1/2 cup of salsa
1 onion
1 clove of garlic
1/2 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes (or to taste)
Brown rice (I used 2 minute ready cups)
1 cup shredded cheese (plus some for topping the zucchini)

Here's what ya do:
1)  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2)  Wash your zucchini.  Cut them in half lengthwise.  Scoop out the inside leaving a little around the edge for your boat shape.
3)  Sautee the onion and garlic.  Then add your ground turkey.
4)  Once turkey and onion is finished, mix with the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl.
5)  Line zucchini on a baking sheet and stuff with the mix.  Top with cheese.
6)  Bake for between 25-30 minutes.

Oh, and I think these would be "cuter" if we called them boats.  So I think I'll change the name to ZUCCHINI BOATS.  Wow, I'm a dork ;)

  1. I've made something like that before, but it was meatless, more of a bready-cheesy stuffing and they were yummy. The recipe may have even called them boats :)


leave us some love!
