I’ve been trying hard to get more veggies in my diet. It’s so easy to get stuck in a rut with plain old steamed or raw veggies. Here is a new favorite of mine! Confetti Rice Zucchini Boats!
Confetti Rice Zucchini Boats
2 Cups Cooked Brown Rice/Quinoa (Cook in Vegetable/Chicken Broth for more flavor)
4-5 Multi Colored Mini-Sweet Peppers
1/2 Cup Fresh Chopped Cilantro
2 Medium Zucchinis
Olive or Coconut Oil
Wash and slice the Zucchinis in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seedy center. Dice the Sweet Peppers and mix them into the cooked Rice/Quinoa. (I used a mixture of both.) Add chopped Cilantro. Scoop mixture into the halved Zucchinis. Drizzle with Olive or Coconut Oil and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or just until Zucchini is tender, but not mushy. Be careful not to over cook or rice becomes crunchy. Serve immediately. Reheats well in a shallow pan with enough water just to steam the Zucchini.
I hope you are experiencing a hint of spring wherever you are! I know it’s been a crazy long winter for so many of you! Blessings to you! ~Kelly
