Essential Sports Nutrition What You Need to Do:

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
2. In a food processor, combine the walnuts, half of the lemon juice, diced onions, minced garlic, diced bell pepper, salt, pepper, nutritional yeast, and chopped parsley. Pulse until the walnuts are broken into small pieces.
3. Add the cooked quinoa to the food processor with the walnut mixture and pulse a few times to combine. Set aside.
4. Slice both zucchinis in half lengthwise and cut off the stem top. Use a spoon to scoop out the soft center of the zucchinis to create room for the filling.
5. Evenly distribute the walnut-quinoa mixture into the zucchini boats, pressing down slightly on the mixture. Optionally, pour the remaining lemon juice over the boats.
6. Place the stuffed zucchini boats on a baking tray and bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, or until the zucchinis are tender in the middle.
