This oven Baked Zucchini Boats recipe is a great healthy alternative to traditional bread sticks. Easy to make, only a few ingredients, and a tasty appetizer you can enjoy guilt free.
Vegetarian Zucchini Boats
You will love these zucchini boats as an appetizer or even a side dish. Instead of regular bread sticks, serve these zucchini boats and ditch the carbs. They are also a great alternative to pizza. Melted cheese, fresh tomatoes, basil and tasty zucchini.
Zucchini is one of my favorite vegetables and it is also full of health benefits. You can eat more vegetables by making creative and healthy recipes. You will be surprised to know how easy it is to make these boats and how delicious they taste. The best part is the entire family can enjoy them.
If you don’t want them completely vegetarian they will also go well with some pepperoni or sausage as additional toppings. Serve them for dinner, at a party, or even as a healthy snack. They are really easy to make and you won’t be making a mess because they go right into the oven.
