Number of Servings: 4


    * Zucchini, baby, 4 large
    * Ground beef, 400 grams
    * Onions, raw, 1 small
    * Broccoli, fresh, 1 spear (about 5" long)
    * Hard Boiled Egg, 2 large

    * Salt, 1 dash
    * Garlic powder, 1 tsp
    * Basil, 1 leaves
    * Cheddar or Colby Cheese, Low Fat, 3 slice (1 oz)


1. Preheat the oven with the grill.
2. Peel the zucchinis and cut them in half.
3. Put the zucchinis inside the oven for 20 minutes or untill you see they are tender.
4. Clean the broccoli and boil it for 10 minutes.
5. Meanwhile, cut the onion and fry it in a big pan or a casserole. Spice the meat and mix it with the onion.
6. When the beef is golden brown, add the tomato sauce and salt it.
7. Drain the broccoli and mix it with the beef. Add the hard boiled eggs cutted in pieces.

  • Incredible!
    Awesome! I didn't peel the zucchini and used feta cheese instead of Colby cheese and it turned out delicious. I will try it next time with crumbled tofu instead of the beef to satisfy my vegetarian friends! - 2/20/12
