Let's face it, summer is about to sail away. WAHHHH!!! Let's grab it while its still blessing us with its sunny presence however we can! These veggie boats make the most of those zucchinis that are taking over the garden about now! Maybe we can figure out how to sail off into the sunset on them!
2 large zucchinis, sliced in half
1 cup cooked couscous
½ onion, diced
1 carrot, diced
1 Tbs. butter
1 Tbs. chopped herbs (basil, mint, or whatever you like!)
¼ cup crumbled feta cheese
salt and pepper
cocktail umbrellas or sails made with toothpicks and paper
1. Preheat oven to 350°. 2. Using a paring knife and a spoon, scoop out centers of zucchini to make them into boats. Dice what you scoop out and set aside.
3. Put boats on baking pan and bake for 15-20 minutes until a fork pierces the squash easily. 4. Meanwhile, melt butter in pan and add onion. Cook until translucent, and then add carrots and zucchini center and cook for a few minutes. Add the cooked cous cous and heat until warm. 5. Remove from heat and add herbs and feta. 6. Scoop into center of your boats. Insert umbrellas or sails. Sail boats into your mouth! Makes 4 boats.
