30-minute Low-Carb Stuffed Zucchini Boats

30-minute Low-Carb Stuffed Zucchini Boats


* Optional Substitution Note

Ingredients for 6 stuffed zucchini boats:

  • 12oz (85% lean) ground bison (I used Simple Truth ground bison, found in Kroger and its affiliated stores)
  • 3 large zucchinis
  • 1/3 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped/minced garlic
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup no salt tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cup grated parmesan (or reduced fat if preferred for your diet)
  • Seasonings:
    • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
    • 1/2 tablespoon smoked paprika
    • 1 teaspoon cumin (optional)
    • sea salt & pepper to taste
  • spray olive oil
  • Optional Garnish:
    • Greek yogurt
    • green onion


Step 1

Set oven to 375F.

Step 2

Chop the ends off the zucchini, then scrape out the inside where the seeds are using a spoon.

Step 3

Set a nonstick skillet on medium heat and spray with olive oil. Add garlic and red onions and cook until the red onion turns brown. Be careful not to burn the garlic in the process.

Step 4

Add the ground bison to the skillet and begin to chop it up in the pan using a spatula. Then add the seasonings. Chop and cook until there are no more visible pink (raw) pieces of meat.

Step 5

Add the tomato sauce and stir together. Season to taste with sea salt & pepper, then reduce the heat.

Step 6

Place the zucchini boats in a baking dish, add about 3 tablespoons of the meat mixture inside the hollow portions of each zucchini boat. Then top each boat with about 2 tablespoons of grated parmesan.

Step 7

Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes at 375F.

Step 8

Garnish if you would like and enjoy!

Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget.
