Zucchini is sliced lengthwise and is stuffed with a mixture of ground turkey, brown rice, cinnamon, garlic, pepper, and chicken broth. It is a light and healthy dish, and smells wonderful when baking. Enjoy!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 zucchini, trimmed and halved lengthwise
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 (14 ounce) cans chicken broth
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 ½ cups uncooked brown rice
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. 2 Scoop pulp out of each zucchini half with a spoon and discard. Arrange zucchini in a deep glass baking dish.
  3. 3 Stir 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper into each can of chicken broth.
  4. 4 Combine turkey, rice, and garlic powder in a large bowl; mix thoroughly. Stir in 1 can seasoned chicken broth.
