Caprese Stuffed Zucchini Boats


  • 4 medium zucchinis, halved lengthwise
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup fresh mozzarella, diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Balsamic glaze (optional, for serving)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Scoop out the seeds and some flesh from each zucchini half to create a hollow space for the filling. Place the zucchini boats on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, combine the cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Mix gently to combine.
  3. Spoon the tomato and mozzarella mixture evenly into the hollowed-out zucchini boats.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the zucchinis are tender and the cheese is melted and lightly golden on top.
  5. Remove from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. Drizzle with balsamic glaze if desired.
  6. Serve warm and enjoy these delicious Caprese Stuffed Zucchini Boats!
