I’ve had a lot of people recently ask me for recipes that were Clean Burn Shape friendly while they are on their 10 day and 30 day cleanse, or healthy recipes for even after the program. Clean Burn Shape recipes need to be grain free, dairy free and vegan in order to meet the 10 day cleanse guidelines. The recipe I have today for you will keep you feeling satisfied and it tastes simply delicious! Stuffed Zucchini Boats are easy and simple and they can be prepared ahead of time. I had this recipe for dinner last night. I cooked them up the night before and re-heated them that evening and they held up great!
Zucchini has some incredible health benefits such as:
• Fights Inflammation
• Lowers Blood Pressure
• Vitamin C
• Hydrating food, 95% water content
• Cancer Fighting Effects
Stuffed Zucchini Boats
4-8″ long zucchini, cut in half length-wise
1/2 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 cup Vidalia onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 cup tomatoes, diced
1 cup cooked chickpeas (if canned, drained and rinsed first)
1/2 cup mixed greens, (spinach or kale)
1/4 cup diced olives (optional)
1 tbsp herbs de provence or dried Italian seasoning
Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 350°F and get a large baking dish.
Scoop out the insides of the four zucchini halves and chop it into small pieces. Melt the coconut oil in a large pan over medium heat.
Once the pan is hot, sauté the onion and garlic together until the onion starts to turn clear. Next, place the bell peppers, tomatoes, scooped zucchini, chickpeas, greens and herbs into the pan and sauté until the greens are wilted.
Add the olives, salt and pepper to taste.
Fill the zucchini “boats” up, with equal amounts of the filling and place in the baking dish.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, and serve warm.
