EASY AND SWEET STUFFED ZUCCHINI


INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 zucchinis
  • 1/2 large onion, chopped fine (~ 1/2 cup)
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 6 slices crispy bacon (~ 1/2 cup chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp sour cream, reduced fat
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp curry powder
  • 1 Roma tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • fresh cracked black pepper
  • kosher salt
DIRECTIONS:
Give the zucchini a quick wash for good measure.
Slice in half lengthwise.
Leave the ends on to keep the filling in.
Scoop out the flesh with a melon baller or a spoon.  Leave a ledge of zucchini around the edges.  For the life of me, I couldn’t make straight lines.  That’s okay.  They were still delicious.  Arrange the zucchini boats in a baking dish.
Chop the zucchini flesh as small as you like.
Finely chop half a sweet onion.
Chop up some good smokey bacon.  You could leave this out for a vegetarian side dish (maybe add some chopped mushrooms?)… but my family goes through quite a lot bacon, so it’s going in!
Saute the onions in butter until soft and translucent. Add in the chopped bacon, then  season with curry powder and salt.  Cook until desired doneness of onions and remove from heat …
