Step 1


Cut each zucchini in half lengthwise. Using a melon baller or a spoon, scoop out the zucchini flesh, leaving about 1/4-inch border intact. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet set over medium heat. Crumble in the ground turkey. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until browned. Add the diced onion, garlic, paprika, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until onions soften and spices are fragrant. Add the chicken broth; simmer for 5 minutes or until all liquid has evaporated. Stir in parsley and mint; cool slightly.

tip TIP

TIP: Add 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper to the skillet with the other spices for a dish with some heat. Try using cooked quinoa in place of bulgur.
