Like potato skins, but less carby and with a BBQ flavor boost! That's a serious win…
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 5 minutes
Cool: 5 minutes
1 medium zucchini, stem ends removed
1 tbsp. BBQ sauce with 45 calories or less per 2-tbsp. serving
2 tbsp. shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
1 tsp. chopped scallions
1 tsp. finely chopped cilantro
Pierce zucchini several times with a fork. Place on a microwave-safe plate, and microwave for 2 minutes.
Flip zucchini and microwave for 2 more minutes, or until softened.
Let cool, about 5 minutes. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise. Gently scoop out and discard the inside flesh, leaving about 1/4 inch inside the skin. Thoroughly pat dry.
Evenly top hollowed-out zucchini halves with sauce, and sprinkle with cheese. Microwave for 30 seconds, or until cheese has melted.
Cut each piece in half widthwise, and sprinkle with scallions and cilantro!
