baked zucchini boat

my typically fruitful garden has been successful at producing only one thing this year: zucchinis. good thing i love the hell out of them. here is a recipe for a stuffed baked zucchini boat... they were pretty tasty, and definitely on the low-fat side. the pic didn't turn out that great... sorry. :(

  • 1 zucchini (boated)
  • 2 cans tomato sauce (the 8oz cans)
  • (boated) zucchini innards
  • 1/4 cup shitake mushrooms
  • 2-3 tablespoons old world seasoning (i use penzey's spices)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/4 cup rice (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon ev olive oil

after scooping the zucchini insides out, chop it up into cubes and mix all the ingredients (except olive oil) together. spice as much you like, then fill the hollow zucchini boats up with the mixture. brush the outside of the zucchini boats with the evoo. place on a baking sheet, and bake about 40-45 minutes on 365. the outside zucchini should be softer, but not roasted.

the recipe listed was for about one medium-size zucchini, halved.

eat up.
