Simple, delicious, and healthy!
This same recipe can be replaced with ground meat if preferred. It can also be made vegan by skipping on the cheese.
Time: 25 minutes
Carbs 35g | Fat 5.4g | Protein 20g
- 4 zucchinis
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 2/3 bag of Morning Star Meatless Crumbles (or any preferred meat or meat substitute)
- 1 Tbsp taco seasoning
- 1/8th cup water
- 1 can black beans
- 1/2 bell pepper, diced
- 1 jalapeno, diced1/2 cup corn
- 1 lime
- diced onion
Cut tops off of zucchinis and slice zucchinis in half lengthwise and spoon out innards. You can save these innards for other dishes or add them to what couldn’t fit in the zucchini boats. This is what I did and it was very yummy, like a burrito bowl with zucchini.
Place zucchini halves in a baking dish, top with olive oil and spices of choice and cook at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes. The spices I chose were pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and turmeric.
Meanwhile, sautee meat according to package instructions. Once ‘cooked’ add taco seasoning and water (splash), combine well. Add in jalapenos, corn, beans, and bell pepper, heat thoroughly on medium heat.
Once the 10 minutes have passed, take out zucchinis and spoon the mixture evenly into each boat. Top with cheese and continue to cook at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven, plate with limes, and top with whatever you like!
