Stuffed Zuccini

I just love shopping at the local farmer's market and trying new and different recipes. It is funny that I like to tinker in my kitchen and create recipes but it is the day to day grind of meals that truly bogs me down.

My recent find at the market was round zucchini squash. They were just begging to be baked and stuffed. Here is what I did:

  1. I cut the top and a little bit of the bottom off the round zucchini so that when I sliced it in half it would stand up in the pan.
  2. I put about a cup of water in the bottom of a glass dish and baked the zucchini at 350 until it was soft
  3. In a pan I cooked garlic, onion, and mushrooms. 
  4. I mixed these veggies with cooked black lentils and cooked quinoa and filled the zucchini added salt and pepper and then cooked them for another 5 minutes.
  5. Gluten, free, dairy free, vegetarian, easy and delicious!
