I had a gnarly craving for stuffed zucchini boats this week. I wanted to do something similar to a stuffed pepper style, but different at the same time. Without making things too hard in the kitchen, I wanted to make something easy, and healthy that is perfect for a weeknight meal!

When I’m trying to eat healthy, I like to reduce my carb intake. Not that carbs are good or bad (I’m in no way a nutrition), I just know what works for my body. Zucchini Boats are my favorite go to meal to make on my carb cutting weeknights and I’m trying to put something easy together.

Using Foster Farms Organic Ground Turkey, not only helps keep this a healthy dish, but since it is such a lean protein, I don’t need to worry about draining. So I’m just browning the turkey, and adding all my seasonings in one pan to get the filling ready!

I love that Foster Farms has an organic line as well. Being a parent, you start to care a little more about what exactly is in the products you’re putting in front of your family.

And I have piece of mind knowing what I’m putting on the table has no antibiotics, hormones, GMOs or steroids! Plus it’s the only California-grown, organic, ground turkey. So it’s not traveling far!

My stuffed zucchini boats had almost a Sante Fe vibe to them. The Foster Farms Organic Ground Turkey, is brown and seasoned with chili powder, cumin, smoked paprika, then I add a can of salsa mexicana (it’s basically a canned salsa), and some black beans.

Loading it up the ground turkey filling into the zucchini boats then topping it of with cheese, makes such a flavorful meal, and there’s no guilt whatsoever. I ate three of these and didn’t feel one once of remorse!

This meal really does not take much time, by the time the stove is preheated you can have the filling ready to load up in your zucchini boats.

If you’re really on a crunch for time, you can prep your zucchini ahead of time, and have everything just ready to load up and throw into the oven!
