Zucchini Pizza

So as I have mentioned before , I go to the local Farmer’s Market every Saturday and load up on veggies and some fruit for the week. I had some leftover zucchini (2) that I needed to use last night and the BF was craving pizza! So introducing zucchini Pizza’s !!!!

They were super easy, healthy, and a 10 out of 10 on how good they were!

What you need—

  • 1 Zucchini per person, cut lengthwise down the middle( also cut of the ends)
  • 1/2 lb ground turkey meat
  • Tomato Sauce ( I used a Tomato Basil one)
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Extras (If you want them)
    • Veggies that you would like on your pizza
    • Seasoning for the Turkey meat
    • Panko Bread crumbs to put on the Zucchini for a little Crunch
    • Jalapeños for the pizza if you like hot stuff

How to make it—

  1. Cook ground turkey meat until done. I seasoned mine with garlic powder and onion powder
  2. Drizzle zucchini with some olive oil, then add salt and pepper ( a pinch) . With broil on cook zucchini for about 5 minutes on each side
  3. After zucchini have cooked on both sides take them out of the oven. With the inside facing up add your toppings. I did mine like so, from bottom to top, sprinkle of Panko bread crumbs, pasta sauce, turkey meat, veggies, cheese, and Jalapeños.
  4. Put back in the oven , on broil, and cook until cheese is melted (about 3 minutes)

Now all you have to do is enjoy!!!! I served ours with a piece of corn on the cob that I added Lemon-Pepper Seasoning too!

Chicken with Lemon-Cucumber Relish

This is a recipe I wanted to try out from the May 2013 Better Homes and Garden Magazine. The picture looked amazing and it was also a pretty simple recipe to make, that included some ingredients I had from my Farmer’s Market trip over the weekend. The end result was ofcourse not as pretty as the picture that inspired me, but was still pretty delicious in my mind.

Now for the fun stuff…

What you need–

  • Boneless chicken breast ( I used 1 for the BF and I, but the recipe calls for 4 in the magazine)
  • 2 tsp ground Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1 medium cucumber, chopped ( about 2 1/2 cups)
  • 1 large tomato, chopped (1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp. Honey
  • 1 Tbsp Milk
  • Olive Oil

How to make it—

  1. Brush chicken with olive oil, then sprinkle both sides with cumin, salt, and black pepper. Cook on medium heat until chicken is done, flipping once.
  2. For Lemon- Cucumber Relish: In large Ziploc bag mix cucumber, tomato, onion, lemon juice, and garlic. Shake well and sit in fridge until ready to serve
  3. In a small bowl mix yogurt, honey, and milk. Mix until combined.

Serve chicken topped with Lemon-Cucumber Relish and drizzle with yogurt sauce! ( Even better this ends up at about 300 calories per serving!!!) I also added a piece of corn to our dinner!
