How to Stuff Zucchini Boats
Stuffing zucchini boats is really easy. First you will rinse off your zucchini. Then using a sharp knife, cut your zucchini in half lengthwise. Then you will scoop part of the insides out, I like to use a small cookie scoop because I find it easier to scoop the insides. You do not want to scoop to much of the insides but enough that there is room to put all the tasty fillings. Once scooped out you are ready to get filling the zucchini boats with whatever your recipe calls for.
