  • 2-8″ Long Zucchini, Cut in half length-wise
  • 1/2 tsp. Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 Cup White Onion, Diced
  • 1 Clove Garlic, Minced
  • 1 Cup Tomatoes, Diced
  • 1/2 Cup Cooked Chickpeas
  • 1 Cup Mixed Greens, Packed (I used Spinach and Arugula)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. Parma
  • 1/4 tsp. Dried Italian Seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp. Dried Basil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • Scoop out the insides of the four zucchini halves and chop it into small pieces. Melt the coconut oil in a large pan over medium heat.
  • Once the pan is hot, start sauteing the onion and garlic together until the onion starts to turn clear. Next, place the tomatoes, scooped zucchini, chickpeas, mixed greens and herbs into the pan and saute until the greens are wilted.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and get a large baking dish or sheet out.
  • Add the Parma to the mixture in the pan, and add salt and pepper to taste. Keep in mind that you want to add a little extra salt to the mixture, because when you fill the zucchini up, it will lose its potency.
  • Fill the zucchini “boats” up, with equal amounts of the filling, sprinkle some extra Parmela on top and place in the baking dish.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, and serve warm.
