Meatless Monday Meal

Vegetarian Zucchini Boats

It’s a little hard to see, but boy, was it good!

Italian Zucchini Boats Recipe

  • 2 medium zucchinis
  • 1 cup lentils
  • 2 cups vegetable broth **
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 TBL Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375.

Cook lentils according to directions, using the vegetable broth instead of water.

While lentils are cooking begin zucchini prep.

Trim both ends off the zucchini. Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise then scoop out the pulp. (Leave between 1/4 to 1/2 of zucchini in boat.) Finely chop pulp.

Cook zucchini pulp, onions and peppers, sprinkled with Italian seasoning, over medium heat until done (Onions will be translucent). Drain, if there is any juice left.  Add cheeses, salt and pepper then mix well. Spoon mixture into zucchini shells. Put in a greased 13×9-in. baking dish and sprinkle with more cheese.

Cook 20 to 25 minutes, uncovered until zucchini is soft.

***Be sure and check vegetable broth as some have beef broth in them (go figure-it’s vegetable not beef!)

This recipe can be varied to be more Italian by adding tomato paste, sauce or ketchup. It can also be Mexican with taco seasoning, more vegetables; such as corn black beans, etc. can be used or even rice.

The possibilities are only limited by your imagination

ENJOY!!

    Hello Robbye! Thanks for the meatless recipe, we’re eating less meat these days and zucchini is in season for a bit longer. I think however, I missed something. Where does the broth come in, cooking the lentils? I’m sure it’s obvious to everyone else, I don’t take things for granted though for a new recipe. Thanks sister, God bless you and always inspire you!

      HI, Thank you for bringing that to my attention, argg! I’m going to correct it, too. The broth is to boil the lentils in. So sorry I missed it. I always go back and recreate the recipe rather than writing it as I’m fixing it, hence more mistakes!
      You are so welcome.
      May God bless and inspire you, too~💖
