Eat one of these Greek Veggie Zucchini Boats for a side, or even two or three for a complete vegetarian dinner!
Happy Summer! It’s official as of this week, right? The weather certainly seems to think so. The best part of summer is the booming Farmers Market! I got some beauties this week and am so glad I get to share them with you. I was looking for some inspiration a few weeks ago, and my dear friend Maggie told me about zucchini boats. I’ve never had them before – but I trust her, and her photo convinced me!
The best thing about zucchini boats: they are SO versatile. Zucchini has a very subtle flavor, so when Maggie told me you can literally stuff them with ANYTHING, I almost didn’t believe her. But when I picked up all the usuals at the FM, it all came together and I knew exactly what they should taste like! Justin’s family is really big on Cavender’s Greek Seasoning (affiliate) – He’s been known to put it on nearly anything. I knew he would approve of a good sprinkle in this recipe too – hope you #enJOY as much as he did!
Local Spotlight: Chard, Zucchini, Potato & Tomato: from the Farmers Market! Mint and Parsley came from the garden!
