  • 4 medium zucchini, cut in half lengthwise

  • ½ cup Soza Salsa

  • 1 lb ground buffalo or ground chicken or lean beef

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 1 tsp cumin

  • 1 tsp sea salt, or to taste

  • 1 tsp chili powder

  • 1 tsp paprika

  • ½ tsp oregano

  • ½ small onion, minced

  • 2 tbsp bell pepper, minced

  • 4 oz Pomi tomato sauce

  • ¼ cup water

  • ¼ cup chopped scallions, for topping

  • Bragg's Nutritional Yeast, to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  2. Using a spoon, carefully scoop out the center of each zucchini half to create a hollow "boat" shape. Set aside the scooped-out zucchini flesh.

  3. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the ground buffalo or your preferred meat choice until it's browned and fully cooked. Break it up into smaller pieces as it cooks.

  4. Add the minced onion and bell pepper to the skillet and cook until they are softened, about 3-4 minutes.

  5. Add the reserved zucchini flesh to the skillet along with the garlic powder, cumin, sea salt, chili powder, paprika, and oregano. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.

  6. Pour in the Pomi tomato sauce and water. Mix everything together and let it simmer for 5-7 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld.

  7. Fill each zucchini boat with the taco meat mixture, distributing it evenly among the boats.

  8. Place the stuffed zucchini boats in a baking dish, and spoon Soza Salsa over the top of each boat.

  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the zucchini boats are tender.

  10. Once cooked, remove the zucchini boats from the oven. Sprinkle chopped scallions and Bragg's Nutritional Yeast on top for added flavor and garnish.

  11. Serve the Taco Stuffed Zucchini Boats immediately and enjoy!
