Baked Zucchini Stuffed w/ Kale + Oats

I fucking love gifts. Can you guess what my favorite gift to receive is? You probably guessed food; in which case you were totally right. Today at work, a friend brought me a bag of veggies from his garden. It was totally unexpected (best!) and pretty much made my day.

I got two super zucchinis, 2 pickling cukes, and a sweet little roma tomato.

I was pretty stoked on the zucchini and knew right away that I was going to stuff that sweet baby with whatever I could find in my kitchen: oatmeal, kale (from my garden), chickpeas, and the makings of a pretty sweet cheese sauce. SOLD!

Here it is. It's good. You know how I do.

4 medium zucchini, halved and center scooped out
1 c oats
2 c vegetable broth
1 bunch of kale, minced
2 tbsp ground flax
4 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp stone ground mustard
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
salt, pepper, and sriracha, to taste

1 c cooked chickpeas
  1. Preheat to 375.
  2. Cook the oats in the veggie broth. You know it's done when all the liquid is cooked down; when that happens turn the heat off and with the pan still on the burn, add in your minced kale to get it all nice and wilted. 
  3. Add all the rest of the ingredients. Make sure you taste that shit to make sure it tastes good to you. Don't be scared to add more ingredients, or adjust to your palate's pleasure.  
  4.  Stuff those hollowed out zucchini shells and put them in a baking dish with 1/2 c water in the bottom of the dish. 
  5. Bake for 40 minutes or so.
