Recipe Ingredients for Stuffed Zucchini

1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
4 zucchini
15 ounce can of Great Northern Beans
1 tomato, diced
4 cloves garlic, finely diced
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
4 tablespoons olive oil

Recipe Directions for Stuffed Zucchini

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. In a saucepan, combine the quinoa and 1 c. water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and water is absorbed, 12 to 15 min.

  2. While the quinoa is cooking, cut the zucchini in half, lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Arrange in a large baking dish (I use 9x13), cut side up.

  3. Fluff the quinoa and fold in the bean, tomatoes, almonds (if using), garlic, 1/2 c. of Parmesan, and 2 Tbsp. oil.

  4. Spoon the mixture into the zucchini. Drizzle with the remaining 2 Tbsp. oil and 1/4 c. Parmesan. Cover with foil and bake until the zucchini is tender, 25-30 min. Remove the foil and bake until golden, 8-10 min.
