  • 6 medium zucchini

  • 1 1/2 cups Parboiled Rice

  • 2 lbs ground turkey

  • 1/2 T Cinnamon

  • 2 tsp Salt

  • 1 tsp pepper

  • 1 (14.5 oz) can petite diced tomatoes

  • 1 small onion, diced

  • 1 T Fresh Churned Garlic Butter


  • Put rice in a bowl and cover put in enough water to cover the rice. Let soak in while you prep the zucchini.
  • Cut stems off the squash and scoop out seeds with a Manakra or apple corer. (You can use the innards in a soup if you’d like.)
  • Mix rice, turkey, spices, and diced onion together until well blended and moist (I like to add a little bit of tomato sauce to the mixture). Stuff squash with mixture, do not pack tightly. Arrange in Instant Pot. Add tomato juice and 2 cans water, add diced tomatoes, then salt and pepper over squash.
  • Cook for 10 min on MANUAL, with a quick release. Turkey needs to reach 165° F.
  • Serve.
