Zucchini Stuffed with Italian Herb Risotto

This is a delicious vegan stuffed zucchini recipe. Zucchini boats filled with herb risotto is almost too perfect. Because let’s get real here, zucchini loves fresh basil πŸ’š

This recipe makes ~6 stuffed zucchini boats and works well as a main course for dinner. It would taste awesome paired with a side of Fennel and White Bean Salad or Heirloom Tomato Salad.

It takes time to pull this recipe off. It isn’t hard, but risotto takes time to stir, and zucchini needs time to bake. But the assembly of the stuffed zucchini is quick and easy.

For a variation, chop up some Field Roast Italian Garlic and Fennel Sausage, and add it to the risotto before stuffing the zucchini.

  1. I eat zucchini because it’s good for me but I’m not really a fan. Occasionally it tastes good and I actually enjoy it. This looks like it could make the enjoyable list! Looks phenomenal!
