Stuffed Zucchini Recipe
Stuffing vegetables……. it’s a thing. You can find a million and one recipes stuffing delicious filling into other veggies like zucchini, eggplant, spaghetti squash, even tomatoes!
I’m all for making recipes that are unique, but often I find I’ve forgotten some simple recipes never posted on my blog and this is one of them.
I’ve stuffed an eggplant, and I’ve even made a low carb, 3 Cheese eggplant roll up lasagna too. But eggplant is a veggie that you either love or hate so it’s not as popular as zucchini.
So I’m stuffing zucchini and loving it. I double up on the meat so one half is enough to keep you full and satisfied, add a salad and it’s a nice dinner or lunch! If you’re not into taco flavors, try my Bacon Cheeseburger Stuffed Zucchini Boats!
If you’re the only one who likes zucchini you can use just some of the filling to fill just zucchini for yourself and your spouse. Use the rest of the filling for making tacos for the kids. Try my Cheesy Low Carb Shells.
I used more ground turkey then the recipe required because I wanted extra filling for the kids. I doubled the rest of the ingredients as well. I love having left overs for easy lunches for the week ahead. I used the remaining filling for the kids to make taco salad or to use with gluten free tortillas.
This was a win with everyone!
The filling is dynamite! Stuffed Zucchini is a great way to use an in season vegetable. You can use this stuffing to stuff another vegetable too if you’re just not into zucchini, either way it will be a recipe the family will continue to ask you to make weekly!
