  • Step 1

    First halve each zucchini and using a spoon, scoop out the inside of the zucchini. Creating a “boat” to stuff with our ground turkey!
  • Step 2

    Arrange them on a baking sheet and drizzle with 2 tbsp olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes until they start to become tender.
  • Step 3

    While those bake, in a large skillet over medium high heat, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil.
  • Step 4

    Brown the turkey until nearly cooked through. Stirring occasionally.
  • Step 5

    Stir in the grated onion, garlic, salt, and lemon pepper, and oregano.
  • Step 6

    Once the zucchini boats have baked, stuff them each with equal amounts of the turkey filling. Top each boat with a couple tablespoons of feta cheese as well as 1 tablespoon each of chopped sundried tomatoes.
  • Step 7

    Return them to the oven for an additional 5-10 minutes.
  • Step 8

    During this 2nd baking time, in a small bowl or blender cup, combine all ingredients for the dressing.
  • Step 9

    Whisk or blend until well combined.
  • Step 10

    Remove the turkey boats from the oven and serve with the dressing. Enjoy!
  • Step 11

    Save any turkey that didn’t make it into the boats for dinner later in the week!
