2 T. Perky’s Crunchy Cereal with Flax
½ package Margherita Pizza Plentils™
2 T. dried oregano
4 big 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
Preheat the oven to 350, line a sheet tray with parchment paper and set aside.
Pour the Perky’s Crunchy Cereal with Flax, the Margherita Plentils and the 2 t. dried oregano into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until you have fine crumbs. Set aside.
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.
Preheat a medium pan, add 1 T. olive oil, the finely diced onion and the diced zucchini tops. Saute 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 Plentil mixure and ¼ c. of the pizza sauce.
Using a spoon, pack each hollow of the zucchini boats full of the turkey-Plentil mixture. Top with the remaining ¼ c. pizza sauce and a light drizzle of olive oil. 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.)
