A fun way to incorporate a vegetable into a meal. Simple to make and great for kids who are picky eaters when it comes to veggies. Definitely a new spin on tacos! I cant wait to experiment and see what other creations can be done with zucchini boats!
What you need:
4 medium (32 ounces) zucchinis, cut in half lengthwise
1/2 cup mild salsa
1 lb 93% lean ground turkey
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp kosher salt, or to taste
1/2 small onion, minced
1/2 cup reduced fat Mexican blend shredded cheese
1. Using a small spoon or melon baller, hollow out the center of the zucchini halves, leaving 1/4-inch thick shell on each half. Drop zucchini halves in boiling water and cook 1 minute. Remove from water.
2. In a pan combine onion, minced garlic, ground turkey, salt, pepper and cumin. Cook until turkey is brown.
3. Fill the boats with salsa. I used mild.
4. Place meat into each boat on top of salsa. Then sprinkle with cheese. Cover with tin foil and cook at 350 for 35 minutes.
