These Italian Farro Zucchini Boats are a fantastic combo of whole grains, cheese and veggies all pulled together into one amazing appetizer.
Want to impress your friends, family or coworkers at your next party? Well you can easily impress anyone with these “boats.” Not only are they fancy looking, but they also include an ancient grain named farro, plenty of vegetables, and of course cheese!
You may be wondering what is this grain called farro? As you may know, ancient grains have become one of the latest trends and as a dietitian I couldn’t be happier. Not only are most ancient grains whole grains, but they also add great variety to our meals that we didn’t even know existed prior to this past year. Farro originated in Egypt centuries ago and is high in protein and fiber and can be used as a substitute for barley, quinoa or rice.
Now since I don’t have too many fancy parties to attend I served these zucchini boats to my family along with my Italian Baked Chicken Tenders. And it was as fantastic combo! My husband and I absolutely enjoyed the variety and I received 2 out of 3 thumbs up from my kids (which is great when you have 3 young kids trying a new food combo).
So next time you’re feeling adventurous or just want to add some variety to your day, try these zucchini boats. You won’t be disappointed!
