20 minute vegetarian Mexican zucchini boats

For a tasty, budget friendly meal in under 20 minutes, try these Mexican zucchini boats.

28 Day Weight Loss Challenge member Charlene shared this great snap of her meal on the Healthy Mummy Food Lovers Group on Facebook.

Charlene served them with extra salsa on the side. She says they’re “Yum! And so filling!

“Instead if discarding the middle I just steamed in the microwave for a minute and added to the salsa…waste not want not.”

Keep your meal and snack pics coming, we love seeing the challenge recipes being made by real mums!
