We used ground turkey in our zucchini boat recipe, but you can used ground chicken or ground beef. It was delicious, and I’m sure it will be tasty no matter which protein you choose. We were also pretty picky on the marinara sauce. If you have spent much time on that aisle in the grocery store, you will see many options that are pretty high in sugar, so make sure check out that nutrition label before you drop it in your basket.

Overall the cook time on this bariatric recipe was not bad. Especially since we plan on making this recipe last for a few different bariatric lunches for the week. If you do plan on saving this for leftovers, you may want to store the zucchini and stuffing in different containers so the zucchini doesn’t get too soggy.

You can also top with a dairy-free cheese or whatever type of cheese is your favorite. We just happened to have parmesan cheese in the fridge and it was delicious!

This zucchini recipe was super easy to prepare, quick to make and the clean up was pretty quick. If you are doing your bariatric meal prep for the week, you could go ahead and cook some extra turkey to use in another recipe.
