  • 4 medium sized zucchinis
  • pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil


  • 1/2 cup mixed chopped herbs parsley, basil and mint
  • 1 cup white beans drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 green chilli sliced optional for heat
  • 1/3 cup crumbled Greek Feta Cheese
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • chopped red onions optional
  • chopped arugula optional


  1. Half each zucchini by length. Take a metal spoon and try to scoop out some of the zucchini seeds and flesh along the centre of each zucchini half (not going all the way).
  2. Try to remove whatever you can but don't remove too much so the zucchini would still hold its’ shape for the filling.
  3. Season the zucchini halves with a pinch of salt and olive oil.
  4. You can cook the zucchini seared on both sides on a nonstick skillet, bake, broil or grill. Just a few minutes on each side on the grill or baked for 7 minutes or broiled for 4 minutes. Or alternatively, you can have the zucchini raw.
  5. For the filling: Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and adjust seasoning.
  6. When the zucchini is ready, simply load on the filling along the centre of each zucchini boat and slice into bite-size pieces.
  7. Enjoy! :)

Recipe Notes

  • To make this zucchini recipe completely vegan, replace the feta with a vegan cheese or skip it altogether.
  • I feel that the stuffing for these Zucchini Boats should be all about YOU! Don't hesitate to make it your own and swap a few things around, but I have to say it's totally delicious as it is!
  • When removing the seeds, try to remove whatever you can but don't remove too much. Otherwise, the zucchini might not hold its’ shape for the filling.
