Vegetarian Zucchini Boats
If you don't have an inkling by now, I have a great affinity for zucchini. Zucchini keeps you warm and grounded throughout the crisp fall days, and is great for adding texture and earthy flavours to a meal. This zucchini boat recipe can be great for entertaining, for a side dish, or even as a main. Make this recipe if you want to reap the benefits of a slew of healing properties such as aiding in the synthesis of fatty acids, metabolising proteins and carbs, protection against oxidative stress, and more.
