      If you're like most people you're over run with zucchini right now. Either
      from your garden or by neighbors begging you to take some of theirs. This
      calls for 4 small zucchini but since many home grown zucchini are rarely
      picked at the small size you can do this with one large zucchini (not one of
      those monstrous ones) & share the big 'boats' among the dinner guests.

      Stuffed Baked Zucchini Boats, Serves 4
      4 medium Zucchini, about 8oz each
      1 cup brown rice
      2 tsp VE mint
      2 tsp VE Foccacia Mix
      3 plum tomatos, seeded and chopped
      1 egg white, lightly beaten
      1/2 tsp peppre
      1 lg onion, chopped
      1 garlic cloves, crushed
      12 oz ground beef
      8 oz tomato sauce
      1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan

      Cook rice, according to pkg directions, adding in mint and foccacia mix.
      Remove from heat, let stand 5 mins, add tomatos, & egg white. MEANWHILE:

      Preheat oven to 375. Cut zucchini in 1/2 lengthwise and scoop out pulp,
      leaving a 1/2 inch thick shell. Reserve pulp. Place scooped zucchini in a
      shallow baking dish and bake until tender, 20 mins.

      Saute ground beef & onion until beef is browned and onion is soft, about 5
      mins. Add tomato sauce, cook another 3 mins until meat is cooked through.
      Add zucchini pulp adn cook until Zucchini is soft (2 mins). Stir in cooked
      rice mixture, spoon into zucchini boats & sprinkle with parmesan. Bake 15
      to 20 mins.

      For a complete but light summer meal try serving with a wedge of cheese and
      a bunch of grapes!
