Guest Post Recipe: Stuffed Zucchini Boats


We have another wonderful guest post recipe today from! I love checking out the posts over on her blog as well as all of her recipes. She does great work and has wonderful step by step pictures! Another recipe that I think looks amazing is Slow Cooker Spicy Macaroni & Cheese! Make sure you read on below and check out for more posts, giveaways, recipes!

I really love eating clean and how I feel when I eat that way. I will confess though that I still crave things like buffalo wings and pizza. Thankfully I have been finding healthy alternatives like Buffalo Cauliflower Bites and now Zucchini Boats! This has become one of my favorite dinners. I have been having it at least twice a week and they’re very easy to make!

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

2. Cut the Zucchini lengthwise and scoop out the center so they’re like boats.

3. Fill in the boat with tomato sauce.

4. Start piling on the toppings. Some of my favorites are black olives, onions, and mushrooms.

I also like Oregano and Nutritional Yeast . If you’re not vegan or dairy free you could add cheese. That is why I use the Nutritional Yeast. It gives it a cheesy taste.

5. Cook for 20 to 25 minutes at 400 degrees.

    I really do like zucchini, but I really didn’t have much of a range in what I knew to do with them. Thanks for a mushroom (yum) filled option.

  39. These look GREAT!!! I usually only do one dish with zucchini so this helps me alot to put some variety in my cooking. LOL

  40. Tina Bornheimer says:

    I love veggies and zucchini’s are one of them, but don’t really have many recipes for them, so thank you for this one. I will give it a try. I usually just do the regular bread, saute them, or bake them with some parmesean cheese on them. This will be a nice change for us. Love mushrooms too… oh and I also like to make them with some pasta. Don’t forget that people… add some veggies in with pasta.. toss with some olive oil and garlic. YUM!!!!

  41. Melissa George says:

  42. Jessica Haynes says:

  47. I wouldn’t mind something along those lines but I am not a huge mushroom fan. Just a few are okay. I love the zucchini though.

  48. Now here is a zucchini recipe that is a little different, and also healthy and looks scrumptious!! I can’t wait to be overwhelmed with zucchini again!!!

  49. Deb E (@debbieeland) says:

    This looks easy enough and healthy too. I love using nutritional brewer’s yeast since it’s packed with vitamins.

  50. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    This is a nice healthy version of stuffed zucchini. I did not know that icy east flakes give the food a cheesy taste. I need to try this recipe with those flakes.

  57. Linda Manns Linneman says:

    These are so good and great for my eating healthier diet. I am so happy you posted this recipe. Thank you so much

  58. That doesn’t sound bad. I might try it. I would use an Italian cheese blend and actual pizza sauce. I can’t eat bread, so this would givr me a flavor of pizza without the bread bloat.

  59. clojo9372 says:

    It’s funny that I read this recipe. My father has a huge vegetable garden and the zucchini are ready to be reaped soon. My mom will have so many of these I am sure this is a recipe she would like to use them for! 🙂
