From a very old booklet called The Best of Beef. Got from my mom years ago when I started cooking. Looks like its from the 70s or 80s. No copyright date. Was a promotional booklet for the beef industry in Canada. Great recipe. A neat way to get creative with all those garden zucchinis we grow in the summer.
4 medium zucchini
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 garlic cove, minced
1lb ground beef (I use ground turkey or chicken)
1/4 c slivered almonds, toasted
1/2 c chopped apple
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 – 5 1/2 oz can tomato paste
Cut zucchini in half length wise and hollow out. Microwave until slightly tender on high. Saute onion and garlic til softened. Add ground meat and brown, discard any fat. Stir in remaining ingredients and simmer 15 minutes. Fill zucchini boats with mixture and heat in the oven at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes.
