      • 4


    • 4 medium zucchinis
    • 2 tablespoons preferred vegetable oil, divided
    • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
    • 1 small onion, diced

    1. Preheat oven to 375℉.
    2. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise and use the tip of a spoon to scoop out the seedy center, leaving a shell ¼-½” thick. Rub with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with salt. Place in a baking dish large enough to hold them and bake until just tender about 15 minutes.
    3. While zucchini bakes, in a large nonstick skillet heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until softened, 6-8 minutes. Add turkey and cook, breaking up meat with a spoon, until no longer pink. Add seasoning mix and stir well to combine.
    4. Divide turkey among hollowed-out zucchini and top with cheese. Return to oven and bake until cheese is melted and starting to brown, about 10 minutes.
    5. Serve with salsa, sour cream, and cilantro.
