Ingredients:

  • 2 Weet-Bix™, finely crushed
  • 4 medium zucchini
  • 1/4 brown onion, finely diced
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, diced
  • 1 tsp dried Italian herbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tsp olive oil

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Lightly oil a large oven tray, or line with baking paper.
  2. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise. Use a small spoon to scoop out the centre of each half, leaving about 1/2 cm flesh all the way around. Arrange zucchini boats in a single layer on the prepared pan.
  3. Finely chop the scooped zucchini flesh and place in a bowl. Add onion, cherry tomatoes, herbs, Parmesan, and crushed Weet-Bix. Stir well.
  4. Fill zucchini boats with the Weet-Bix mixture and drizzle with the oil.
  5. Bake 15-20 minutes or until zucchini is tender and the filling is golden. Serve warm as an entree or main.
