Stuffed zuchinni

16 Mar

When you find zuchinnis that are round and small, the first thing that came to my head is ‘stuff them.’ 

Sometimes, vegetables get a little boring when you always have the same old same old, wether its a pepper overload or a spinach obbsession or my own ‘guilty’ pleasure that i definitly overconsume – carrots. So if there’s any opportunity to find new veggies which i can enjoy and create lovely recipes for your guys, its always a good day! Especially when these zuchinni stuffed bowls can be a great lunch idea or even served for friends if you want to impress them with something snazzy and jazzy!

Still continuing with my 50 day vegan journey, I got creative when making my stuffing, making sure it still is a good protein source to make this a fully balanced meal that will keep you full and satisfied! 

Daily dose of advice: for all you vegetarians and vegans out there, it has proved extremly helpful to keep some pre-boiled beans and legumes in the freezer and take out a few hours before to use

Ingredients:

5 Zuchinnis

1/2 cup cooked Wild rice

1/4 cup Raisins

1/2 cup Chickpeas 

Handful Pine nuts

Start off by removing the core of the zuchinni. *save the core for later

Boil the rice and once ready mix in the raisins, pine nuts and chickpeas. Stuff the zuchinnis with the mixture and boil until the zuchinnis feel slightly softer. You can either add the zuchinni core in the boiling water to eat as a sauce, or include it in your rice mixture.
