Feta Zucchini Boats

We have zucchini coming out of our ears right now! Seriously, our 4 little organic zucchini plants are producing delicious green vegetables faster than we can eat them.

Take a look at these monsters that sat in the box a little too long due to all the rain we’ve been having in east Tennessee!

I’ll be making lots of Zucchini bread soon with them, but until then, I’ve been trying to come up with some different ways to serve the yummy green veggie to my family.

I’m a sucker for it sliced in strips and sauteed in Teriyaki sauce with onions, but I stumbled upon a new favorite and I’m so excited to share it with you!

If you follow me on instagram, you probably saw me post a picture of my creation after I made it. I was shocked that it tasted so good. Seriously, so good. And although you can see cheese on the Zucchini boats, there’s really not that much. Just enough to make it delicious but still pretty healthy!

So, if you’re overrun with this summer vegetable – or you’ve just picked up a few from the Famer’s Market – you definitely want to try this one!

The idea came because I had a small box of Feta Cheese in the refrigerator that I had no idea what to do with – so it became the secret ingredient in these Zucchini Boats!

First, I cut off both ends of each zucchini. I then sliced them in half – length wise and if they were pretty long, I sliced them in half again. Just depends on the size you like. These are even fun to do as “bite size”.

I scooped out just a tiny bit of the zucchini with a small spoon. Just enough to give me a bit of a “boat”, but I love the veggie itself, so I didn’t want to get rid of too much!

Then I started layering! First, a bit of garlic in each boat. Then add in Feta Cheese crumbles. Next comes in a topping of Mozzarella and Parmesean Cheese.

Lastly, drizzle in each boat with a bit of olive oil and season with salt and pepper!

We like our Feta Zucchini Boats with a tiny bit of crunch left, so 15 minutes in a 350 degree oven works perfectly! And to get that beautiful toasted cheese, I turn the broiler on for 3-5 minutes!

From start to finish {including baking time}, this side dish is less than 30 minutes but tastes delicious. It’s one that you can grab in a pinch and impress your family {or guests}!
