Recipe Ingredients for Stuffed Zucchini

6 slices Lower Sodium Bacon
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp Cajun Seasoning
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp garlic
1/2 tomato
1 tsp cilantro
2 zucchinis
1 onion
1/2 cup Shredded Cheese
1/4 serving Green Mountain Creamery Greek Yogurt Plain 0%

Recipe Directions for Stuffed Zucchini

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 (200C).

  2. Slice them in half length-ways. You can trim the ends if you like. Spoon out the guts. I love how that sounds, has to be the Halloween thing. Oh wait, we don?t celebrate Halloween here! Never mind. Just take it out (leave about 1/2 an inch in) until you end up with boat like shells.

  3. Now give the zucchini pulp a good chop, also chop a small onion and 1/2 a tomato while you?re at it.

  4. Sautee the onions in one tbsp oil or butter.

  5. When the onions are almost done, add the cajun, red pepper flakes, garlic and salt

  6. Now (in no particular order), add 1 tsp cilantro, 1 heaping tbsp yogurt, a good pinch of pepper, the zucchini pulp, the tomato and crumble the bacon in as well.

  7. Grab a spoon and fill the shells with the mix. Sprinkle some aged cheese on top.

  8. Put them in a preheated oven, give them about 20 minutes and then turn on the grill until the top is golden brown.
