Courgette Tacos 

Courgette Tacos

Introducing one of my favorite healthy, delicious, cheap and easy recipes – Courgette Tacos.
For this recipe, you will need: 
(serving size – 2 people)
  • 2-3 Courgettes (depending on the size) 
  • 250gm of Turkey Mince (Can also substitute for low-fat beef/lamb mince)
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 red onion
  • Taco seasoning (packet or use the following link to mix your own spice http://www.foodrenegade.com/homemade-taco-seasoning/)
  • 1 avocado
  • Optional toppings: cheese, lowfat sour cream, lettuce. 

 

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C / 400°F gas mark 6.

    2. Cut the courgettes in half vertically and use a spoon to scoop the flesh out until you have a hollow centre for your filling. Cook the courgettes for 10 minutes.

      3. Whilst the courgettes are cooking, heat a Tsp of olive oil in a pan on medium – high heat. Dice and fry half of the onions until they begin to soften. 


      4. Add the mince to the frying pan with half the seasoning and cook until brown (At this point I added some garlic because I’m obsessed).


      5. Once all the mince is nearly brown drain any excess liquid and add the rest of the seasoning. Cook for another minute. 

      6. Spoon the mince into the courgettes and bake in the oven for around 7 minutes (or until the mince and courgettes are fully cooked). 

      7. Whilst the tacos are cooking dice some tomatoes (I prefer to deseed them) and mash the avocado with a fork. 

       

      8. Once the courgettes are cooked top with tomatoes, avocado and onion. 


      There is loads of toppings and sides to serve this dish with. I kept it simple in the above and served with some rice but the possibilities are endless! 

      Comment If you try them and let me know what you topped them with !
