How to Stuff Zucchini Boats

Stuffing zucchini boats is really easy. First, you will rinse off your zucchini. Then using a sharp knife, cut your zucchini in half lengthwise. Then you will scoop part of the insides out, We like to use a small cookie scoop because we find it easier to scoop the insides. You do not want to scoop too much of the insides but enough that there is room to put all the tasty fillings. Once scooped out you are ready to get filling the zucchini boats with whatever your recipe calls for.

What Temperature do you bake Zucchini Boats?

It is important to bake zucchini boats at the correct temperature. If the oven temperature is too low they won’t cook all the way, and if it is too high they will burn on the outside without cooking the inside. We cook our zucchini boats at 400°F.
