Steps to Make Zucchini Turkey Boat Recipe

The first thing to do to make these Zucchini Turkey boats is of course wash the zucchini and then cut them in half. Once they are all cut in half it is time for scooping out the pulp or seeds. I just used a spoon to scrape the pulp out. Be careful not to take too much out or they will fall apart when you fill them. I kept the flesh of each zucchini and placed that in a paper towel and squeezed out all the moisture. I use it in the filling later.

Once scooped, I use olive oil and rub it all over each piece and place them cut side down on a cookie sheet. Bake the zucchini boats at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes.

While the zucchini boats are baking I start cutting up the veggies to get them ready to sauté them in a pan along with the left over pulp from the zucchini boats. For the veggies I used a combination of onions, red peppers, garlic, green onions and fresh basil.

I sautéed the veggies in olive oil until the onions were almost translucent.

Next I added the ground turkey into the same pan as the vegetables to brown the meat. I also added in some kosher salt and Webers Beer Can Seasoning. I love this seasoning and I use often like when I make grilled chicken and caprese salad.

The last two things I added was the Bertoli organic olive oil and basil pasta sauce and the 90 second microwavable Seeds of change brown and red rice with chia and kale. The microwavable rice is really delicious and so easy to heat for 90 seconds! Once everything is in the pan I just heat it through!

Time to fill the Zucchini boats! Simply fill each zucchini boat with the turkey and vegetable filling. Top with grated parmesan cheese and bake in the oven until heated through and cheese melts. Approximately 20 minutes. I have another favorite turkey recipe that you might enjoy Quick easy turkey Thai yams.
