Stuffed Zucchini Boat
2 zucchini halved and scooped
1/4 cup onion finely chopped
1/4 coloured bell pepper finely chopped
1/4 cup carrot n beans finely chopped
Zucchini scoops finely chopped
Garlic 2-3 minced
3 tbsp tomato puree
Salt and pepper
Coriander 1 tbsp finely chopped
Vegan cheese for topping
First halve the zucchini lengthwise, scoop out the inside with a spoon and keep aside.
Next, prepare the cauliflower ‘rice’. This rice is very popular nowadays to replace regular rice, to reduce carbohydrate intake. For this, grate the cauliflower with a box grater or put the florets in a processor until the pieces resemble rice-sized.
To prepare the stuffing, in a wok, saute onion and garlic.
Once transparent, add all the other vegetables and cook until all are cooked through. Add the tomato puree, oregano, chilli flakes, salt and pepper and mix well. Take off from flame and mix in the coriander.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Fill this mixture into the hollowed zucchini. Top with vegan cheese. Keep these zucchini boats in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until done.
