To start off, you’ll need some basic ingredients like avocado oil, yellow onion, jalapeno, ground turkey (or grass-fed beef), brown rice, cumin, garlic, fire-roasted crushed tomatoes, zucchini, parsley or basil for garnish, and Parmesan cheese if you’re feeling fancy.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and slice your zucchini nice and thin. Then roast them for about 12 minutes to soften them up for rolling.

In a skillet, sauté the onion until tender, then add in the jalapeno, cumin, and garlic for some extra flavor. Next, brown your meat, stir in the cooked rice, and season it all with some sea salt. Easy peasy!

Now, it’s time to assemble. Spread a layer of crushed tomatoes in a baking dish and start rolling up your zucchini slices with the meat mixture. Place them seam side down in the dish and bake for 15 minutes.

Once they’re nice and bubbly, garnish with parsley, Parmesan cheese, and dig in! These stuffed zucchini rolls are a fun twist on traditional burritos and are sure to impress your friends and family.
