Quinoa Zucchini Boats

Have you noticed I haven’t put up a quinoa recipe in a while? I barely had any time to cook during my last 6 week rotation block at the hospital, but this week is my week off and I plan on catching up on all of the lost time in the kitchen! Quinoa is one of my favorite “health foods” because it is so versatile. Today I made these quinoa stuffed zucchini boats. I got the idea of stuffing zucchini from my mom, but because I love quinoa so much I wanted to fill the zucchini boats with my favorite quinoa mix. I added tomatoes, basil, olive oil, light feta cheese, garbanzo beans and slivered almonds. Make sure to cover them with aluminum foil while cooking for the first 20 minutes, otherwise the quinoa will get too hard and crunchy. You can use your imagination to come up with other quinoa stuffing mixes for these zucchini boats! This is my new favorite “Meatless Monday” recipe :)



  • 4 medium organic zucchini
  • 1 cup organic white quinoa
  • 2 cups filtered water
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 organic roma tomatoes, diced
  • ¼ cup light feta cheese
  • ¼ cup garbanzo beans
  • 2 tbsp slivered almonds
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

It’s only fair to share…
