Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 4 boats

Ingredients

  • 4 large zucchini
  • 1 15.5oz can chickpeas or garbonzo beans, drained, rinsed, and patted dry
  • 1/2 cup cayenne hot sauce. I used Frank's
  • 2 oz butter, melted
  • salt and pepper
  • For serving: ranch or other creamy dressing, green onion, avocado, red onion, jalapeno slices, lime, cilantro

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Halve the zucchini lengthwise and scoop out the inner flesh to make 4 boats. Place in a baking dish flesh side up.

  3. Combine the chickpeas, hot sauce, and butter in a medium sized bowl. Scoop the mixture evenly into the 4 boats. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, or until zucchini is fork tender.

  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  5. Drizzle with dressing of your choice, and top with any toppings you'd like. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

I used ranch dressing, but blue cheese or vegan cream sauce would work great too.
