Here’s a recipe that is perfect for Meatless Monday tomorrow. It’s also quick and easy to throw together, so it works great for a week-night meal, too. Enjoy!
Black Bean and Cheese Zucchini Boats
- 1 large zucchini
- 1/2 cup black beans
- 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar
- 1/4 cup tomato sauce
- pinch of: garlic powder, onion powder, italian seasoning, chili powder, and seasoning salt
- 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional but adds more cheese flavor)
- parmesan cheese, for topping
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place zucchini in microwave for about 2-3 minutes to soften. While that’s cooking, go ahead and combine all other ingredients in a bowl. Once zucchini is done, cut in half and scoop out most of the soft insides. Light squeeze out excess water and mix the soft insides of zucchini with the other ingredients. Using a towel, press dry the zucchini “boats” so they aren’t too watery. Fill up boats with the stuffing. Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes.
Best served with sweet potato wedges.
Have a great night everyone!
