Stuffed Zucchini Boats
Well, this year has seen me increase my intake, and my love, for zucchini. In the past I had only had zucchini cut up and roasted with other veggies on a bbq. More often than not, that resulted in pretty squishy, not so tasty zucchini.
Our neighbour Frank, with his magical vegetable garden, gave us a bunch of zucchini over the last few weeks, and so I started to find ways to eat it that I actually enjoyed. Enter the zucchini boat.
This particular recipe was created because Franks also gave me a glorious bunch of fresh basil from his garden. So, I started putting things together, and this particular boat was one of my favourites (I've made a bunch of different kinds).

As a side note, some people like to cut in half, scoop out the centre, and roast the zucchini on it's own, then add the filling and eat it. If you're used to that, then do it. If not, you can do it my way if you want. :)
It may seem like a lot of steps, but it really is so simple. And soooo yummy!
I've made stuffed zucchini this summer with tuna, avocado and hot banana pepper rings, one with sausage and sour kraut, and another one with chicken, tomato, and artichokes. A zucchini is kind of tasteless, and so it makes a willing vessel for any number of taste combos you can imagine!
Well, that's it for now! Today is meant to be a little rainy, which is o.k. Sometimes I am glad for a rainy day because it forces me to stay indoors and get some stuff done in the house (....cleaning....blah...). :)

I had stuffed zucchini last night! It was vegan of course, but super deeelicioso. I roasted sweet potato, cooked mushroom with lots of fresh garlic and onion - added chili powder, cumin and salsa - stuffed that zucc and bingo bango - Southwestern stuffed zucchini. I put those babies on the barbecue and it was awesome. Why am I telling you all this? I need more coffee.
