Zucchini for One or Two… If You Like It!

Today I wanted to write about something fun… easy and yummy!…

I’m trying to eat more fresh veggies and fruit…

I have a goal to lose 20 pounds by Christmas… u10106036

That’s to be seen of course… but, I think I might have the mindset to do it!

I bought some zucchini… or as I learned from a fellow blogger “My Beautiful Things”… Courgette

knowing my guys aren’t going to eat it… but, I wanted to try a new recipe I had seen… and it sounded like something “I” would eat and enjoy…

Being a “simple” person… and liking things easy to prepare… I winged it…

INGREDIENTS…

Since I would be the only one eating it… I bought 2 small/medium size zucchini

“Rice Stuffed Zucchini”

I microwaved zucchini for about 4-5 minutes until soft…

Scooped out insides leaving a well to stuff…

I saved the zucchini that I had scooped out… added some chopped onion and sautéed in butter until tender…k3930734BED0015

After cooking rice per directions on package (water and butter)… boil…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I added sautéed zucchini and onion

and spooned into shells of zucchini…

Sprinkled shredded cheese on top… and baked for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees……

This is the photo right before putting in oven,,,

Why I didn’t take photo after baking… is beyond me…

Well, maybe I was just so pleased at how they looked… I forgot… and couldn’t wait to taste!…

Healthy… easy and my complete meal… (Actually two servings)…

  1. Glad to see it worked and obviously tasted good too! I sometimes forget to take the photo of the finished dish as we dive in and eat before I think, “Oh, no, meant to take a photo! Too late!”
