Summer is here and it's time to break out the air fryer and whip up some tasty treats! When it comes to summer veggies, zucchini is a top contender, and creating zucchini boats is a great way to enjoy this versatile vegetable. But can we really cook zucchini boats in an air fryer? The answer is a resounding yes, and in this blog post, we'll show you how.



First, let's gather our ingredients:

  • 2 medium zucchinis

  • 1 cup cooked quinoa

  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes

  • 1/2 cup chopped bell peppers

  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion

  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste


Next, let's get cooking:

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 375°F.

  2. Slice your zucchinis lengthwise and scoop out the insides to create a hollow, boat-like shape.

  3. Brush each zucchini boat with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  4. In a bowl, mix together the cooked quinoa, chopped tomatoes, bell peppers, red onion, and shredded cheddar cheese.

  5. Spoon the mixture into each zucchini boat, making sure to fill them up.

  6. Place the zucchini boats in the air fryer basket and cook for 12 minutes or until the zucchinis are tender and the cheese is melted.

  7. Once done, remove from the air fryer and let cool for a few minutes before serving.


Pro tips and variations:

  • If you're short on time, you can pre-cook the quinoa in advance.

  • You can also mix up the filling to include other veggies or proteins like ground turkey or black beans.

  • Don't have an air fryer? You can also bake these in the oven at 400°F for 20-25 minutes.


Summer may be all about barbecue and ice cream, but there's always room for some healthy and delicious veggies. With this recipe, you can enjoy zucchini boats in a new, exciting way by cooking them in your air fryer.
