Pizza Boats

Pizza Boats

Makes 4 servings

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • 2 T. Enjoy Life Foods Crunchy Flax Cereal
  • ½-4 OZ bag Margherita Pizza Plentils
  • 2 T. dried oregano
  • 4 large zucchinis
  • ½ onion, finely diced
  • 8 sundried tomatoes, soaked in hot water then drained and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ½ lb. ground turkey thigh
  • ¼ C. premade pizza sauce + another ¼ C. for topping the boats
  • 1 T. olive oil

DIRECTIONS:

    1. Preheat the oven to 350°, line a sheet tray with parchment paper and set aside.
    2. Pour the cereal, Plentils and oregano into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until you have fine crumbs. Set aside.
    3. Slice off the top 1/3 of the zucchini, going lengthwise to create the “boat”. Dice the top of the zucchini and, using a small spoon, carve out the larger side to create the hollow of the “boat.” Set boats aside.
    4. Preheat a medium pan; olive oil, onion and the diced zucchini tops. Sauté gently until onion is translucent and then add the chopped sundried tomatoes and garlic. Cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes, and then pour into a large bowl. Add a good pinch of sea salt, the ground turkey thigh, ½ c. of the ground Plentils mixture and ¼ C. of the pizza sauce.
    5. Using a spoon, pack each hollow of the zucchini boats full of the turkey-Plentils mixture. Top with the remaining ¼ C. pizza sauce and a light drizzle of olive oil.
    6. Place on the parchment lined baking sheet and place in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until fully cooked through (instant read inserted into the turkey mixture lengthwise should read 170°.)
