Zucchini Boats

You know those big, honking zucchini you find after you have been gone on a trip?  The ones that look more like clubs than something to eat.  These monsters are good for something more than zucchini bread, they make one heck of a boat!  Just slice in half lengthwise and hallow out the center where all the seeds and mushy inners are. Pack full of what ever you like, maybe polenta or rice, pilaf or spaghetti. I could even see it as a nice vehicle for tuna melts, sprinkle with bread crumbs and cheese, viola!

They take a good 30 minute bake to soften up and can be cut into sections for serving.  Also look for round “8 ball” zucchini at the farmer’s market, these are grown for stuffing!


  1. We had a lot of those massive zucchini awaiting us when we came home from holiday too! Those are some good stuffing ideas for them - and I like the name zucchini boats as well!

  2. This looks great! I have a 21" zuchini right now that I plan to make relish from but if I get another like that this would be a great use for it! Thanks for linking up to Simple Lives Thursday.

It's rude to eat and run. Humor me with conversation please!
