This turkey stuffed zucchini recipe is fantastic for people who’re seeking a tasty, but relatively low calorie, low fat, main course.
4 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise
1 lb. ground turkey
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon margarine
1 tomato, chopped
1 tablespoon chopped parsley or chives
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon basil
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup Grapenuts cereal
1 (8 oz.) container plain low-fat yogurt (your favorite cheese could be used instead if you don’t mind the extra fat)
Remove pulp from zucchini; chop and set aside. Parboil zucchini shells in boiling water to cover for 1 minute. Drain and place in shallow baking dish. Saute turkey, onion, and garlic in margarine in skillet for 2 minutes. You can use a nonfat cooking spray to reduce fat even further. Add chopped zucchini pulp, tomato, parsley, salt, basil, and pepper.
Saute for about 5 minutes longer or until zucchini is tender. Add the cereal and 1/2 cup of the yogurt. Spoon into shells. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes or until shells are tender. Serve with remaining yogurt. Sprinkle with additional chopped parsley or chives, if desired.
