Getting kids to eat vegetables can be a tricky battle. My kids will often offer a firm “no” before even tasting the dish. Over the years I’ve tried all sorts of fun ways to prepare and present vegetables in an effort to entice them to be adventurous, try new vegetables and inevitably consume more vegetables.
I’ve done some pretty crazy stuff to get my kids to try new foods, with mixed results. From time to time though, I come across a winner of a dish. A dish my kids, the whole family even, adore…
That’s where these Stuffed Zucchini Boats come in. There are copious amount of veggies concealed within this fun dish and the kids find it difficult to resist.
Of course you can feel free to mix it up and stuff your Zucchini with your veggies of choice totalling two cups to replace the mushrooms, red peppers and leeks – we just find this combination to be so flavorful that we enjoy it this way time and time again.
To me these Zucchini Boats are a fun, veggie, carb free, pizza alternative. So, my preference is to top them with Oregano and Parmesan (proper Parmigiano Reggiano) to give them an authentic pizza flavour.
