olive oil

garlic/garlic powder


black pepper

crushed red pepper flakes



a handful of diced onion

3 small diced sweet peppers



ground turkey


grated/shredded parmesan cheese


Step 1: Clean all the veggies.  Take zucchini and cut down the center longways.  Take a spoon and scoop out the seeds.  You should have a nice looking boat afterward.  Set aside.

Step 2: Pour enough olive oil  to cover the bottom of a large pan.  Then shake garlic powder (about 1/4 tspn) and add a pinch of rosemary.  Set stove to a medium-low heat and let that get warm.

Step 3: Add chopped onion and peppers.  Cook until tender.

Step 4: Add ground turkey.  Sprinkle some crushed red pepper flakes (to taste preference), black pepper, oregano, and parsley.  Mix and stir together.  Make sure to check and stir ground turkey so it doesn’t burn.

Step 5: Once the turkey meat is brown and cooked, add the peas and corn.  Cook for about 3-4 more minutes.

Step 6: Add just a bit of parmesan cheese to this mixture.

Step 7: Stuff the delicious mixture into the scooped out zucchinis and bake them in a 350 degree oven for about 20-25 mins or until zucchini is soft and tender.

Step 8: During the last 3-5 mins of cooking time, sprinkle the parmesan cheese on top and place back into the oven to melt.  Then enjoy!

You can get creative and add any type of ingredients.  For a vegetarian option, try to swap the turkey for quinoa so it is still satisfying.  Maybe if you want to go spicy, try to add hot sausage or chorizo.  So many options! Try them all.
