Let’s celebrate zucchini season with a compilation of 15 best stuffed zucchini boat recipes on the internet. The amazing stuffed zucchini ideas below include ideas that are keto, paleo, low-carb, vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and classic favorites.
Zucchini is one of the most versatile vegetables that you can turn into virtually anything: zucchini noodles, zucchini “meatballs”, zucchini bread or muffins. My absolute favorite way to eat zucchini though is filling scooped out zucchini halves with delicious stuffing and baking them for a perfect, low-carb comfort dinner.
Some of the recipes below incorporate the scooped out zucchini flesh in the stuffing while others don’t. If you end up with extra zucchini flesh, don’t throw it out. Add it to soups, sauces or smoothies. I usually place it in a freezer bag and use it frozen in smoothies for a nice, neutral tasing vegetable boost.
Zucchini boats are fun, versatile, flavorful and perfect for meal prep. If you’re looking for interesting stuffing options, look no further because I have a ton of awesome ideas for you below.
