Zucchini Boats Recipe

4 May

Last week my girlfriend and I were looking for new healthy recipes and we came across this one for Zucchini Boats! I’m not a huge fan of zucchini but I thought I’d try it and it turned out to be quite good!

Here’s what to do!

1) Preheat oven at 400 degrees.

2) Slice zucchini in half long ways and spoon out the ‘guts’ or middle of the vegetable until it resembles a boat.

3) Sauté onions in oil and butter until they are light brown in color. You can add some curry powder if you like a little spice to your dish! Transfer into a big mixing bowl.

4) We made this dish vegetarian so instead of bacon we heated up vegetarian crumbles and added them to the big mixing bowl with the onions.

5) Add 1tsp of dried thyme, 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of salt, 1 tbsp of greek yogurt, and a little pepper to the bowl and mix everything together.

6) Lightly butter a baking dish and put the zucchini boats in. Grab a spoon and fill the shells with the mix. Sprinkle some cheese on top.

7) Cook in oven for about 20 minutes until the cheese is melted and the top is a golden brown.

Serve & Enjoy!

Even though Zucchini isn’t my favorite vegetable, these were a good (and easy) dish to have for a quick lunch! If you’re doing the 21-day fix challenge than it counts for 1 red, 2-3 green, and 1 blue. That’s it! Let me know your thoughts!
