zucchini boats sit on a sheet pan, filled with meat, tomatoes, and herbs
Venison Zucchini Boats
January 23, 2018

This is a unique take on a traditional stuffed zucchini. You can also substitute any one pound of ground meat, if you do not like venison. You can even use ground boar. You can find both venison and boar at Sprout’s or other speciality butcher shops and grocery stores. In addition, this filling can be used with bell peppers if you do not like zucchini. To help keep you on track with portion control, weigh the protein filling by placing the hollowed out zucchini on the scale and hitting zero. Then fill boats to desired portion before placing them in the baking dish.

Quick Versatile Bolognese Sauce With Zoodles
January 9, 2018

Bolognese means “In The Style of Bologna,” the Italian city in northern Italy known for cuisines that makes liberal use of meats. This is a rich meat sauce that is versatile because you can use ground beef, bison, turkey or ground chicken and it will still be delicious. Also, if you need more carbohydrates that day serve it over GF pasta or rice rather than zucchini noodles (zoodles). Omit red pepper flakes if you are adverse to heat from spice. You can add little fresh basil which is typically not part of bolognese but it adds a little freshness and if you love basil as I do- Just go for it!
