Tip - Vegan Alternative 

  1. Halve zucchinis lengthways, with a spoon, scoop out the flesh, leaving a shell intact all around the zucchini. Save the flesh for another use.

  2. Lightly stuff the zucchini boats with the stuffing, place the zucchini into a baking dish, and bake until thoroughly heated through and beginning to brown on top, about 30 minutes.
