Buffalo Turkey Stuffed Zucchini Boats are easy, delicious, and a low carb dinner!
Did anyone set a New Year’s resolution this year? I did not. Actually, I don’t think I have set any resolutions for the past few years. They just seem so…..cliche. And just begging to be broken.
While I typically do feel an urge to start fresh at the beginning of the new year, what does that even mean? Start a diet? Clean out my closet? Take up a new hobby?
To be honest, I don’t want to diet. I have lots of other things I’d rather do than clean my closet. And I don’t need a new hobby. I have enough stuff to keep me busy. Thankyouverymuch.
HOWEVER. After a season of cookies, eggnog, and lots of heavy cream, I feel a natural need to eat more vegetables.
Enter: Buffalo Turkey Stuffed Zucchini Boats. They are exactly where eating more vegetables meets my craving for comfort food.
Today though, I’m not limiting the deliciousness of buffalo wings to chicken. No siree. Today is all about the turkey!
Specifically, Jennie-O’s Extra Lean Ground Turkey, which is 99% fat free, gluten free, and all natural.
What is in Buffalo Turkey Stuffed Zucchini Boats
So not only are these Buffalo Turkey Stuffed Zucchini Boats low carb and generally good for ya, they’re also SO easy to make! Like, I couldn’t believe how quick they came together.
The filling is a super simple combo of the ground turkey, onion, and buffalo wing sauce. The filling is then loaded up into a couple of zucchini that have been sliced in half lengthwise and scooped out, top with cheese, and throw ’em in the oven!
After they’re baked you just top it with some blue cheese, green onions, and a drizzle of more buffalo wing sauce. And a drizzle of some ranch or blue cheese dressing if you feel up for it.
Then I’ve yourself a big high five for getting in those veggies! Go you!
