Packed full of tuna, fresh veggies and cheese, these Tuna and Veggie Stuffed Zucchini Boats are a hearty and healthy dinner alternative.
If you’re looking to change things up for dinner but still use everyday ingredients, this is your recipe. No fancy ingredients, but definitely a change from the dinner norm. And did I mention they’re incredibly delicious? I immediately inhaled one right after photographing!
Your simple ingredients are: zucchini, crushed buttery crackers, sharp cheddar cheese, tomato, red onion, fresh minced garlic, canned tuna and pepper.
I found that using a melon baller made hollowing out the zucchini pulp SO EASY! If you don’t have a melon baller, you can use a spoon.
The pulp is roughly chopped and mixed with the remaining ingredients (except for reserving a little of the shredded cheese to sprinkle on top) and stuffed into the zucchini “boats”. You might initially think you have too much of the zucchini pulp mixture, but trust me… if you pile it on like in the photographs, you’ll use every bit of it.
