Think potato skins, but with low-carb and Mediterranean flavor upgrades. The zucchini provides a tender, yet sturdy, vessel for a cheesy, tangy, salty flavor bomb of goat cheese and prosciutto. Adding just a drizzle of avocado oil just before placing these grilled zucchini boats on the heat prevents the cheese and prosciutto from burning while adding more healthy fats to this ketogenic dish.

Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 ounces goat cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 slices prosciutto, diced
  • 2 teaspoons avocado oil, divided
  • Step 1

    Insert the Grill Grate and close the hood. Select GRILL, set the temperature to MAX, and set the time to12 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin preheating.

  • Step 2

    Halve the zucchini crosswise, then slice each piece lengthwise, for 8 quarters.

  • Step 3

    Using a spoon, scoop the seeds and some of the flesh from each zucchini stick, leaving 1/4 inch of flesh on the green skin. Season the inside of each zucchini with salt.

  • Step 4

    In a small bowl, crumble together the goat cheese, Italian seasoning, and pepper. Evenly sprinkle the cheese mixture inside each zucchini quarter.

  • Step 5

    Evenly top the cheese with the prosciutto, then drizzle each with oil.

  • Step 6

    When the unit beeps to signal it is preheated, place the stuffed zucchini pieces, prosciutto-side up, directly onto the Grill Grate. Close the hood and cook for 12 minutes.

  • Step 7

    Remove the zucchini from the grill and serve.
