We have had tons of zucchini this year in our house. So I am always looking for new and tasty ways to whip up a dish. Today we were craving quiche so I threw this together.
What Is Quiche
Quiche is a classic French dish that has been around for so many years. A pastry pie crust that is filled with a creamy egg, cream, and your favorite filling ingredients. All mixed up and baked in the oven.
You will find tons of quiche recipes all over the globe. I wanted to create a fun and easy meatless quiche featuring summer produce.
How To Make
Step 1: Use a mandoline and thinly slice your zucchini. Then you will season your zucchini and saute on the stove to help soften up the zucchini.
Step 2: Then you will start to assemble your quiche I used a store bought crust. You are welcome to make a homemade pie crust if you would like.
Add seasonings and salt and pepper to taste and pour into your pie plate.
Step 3: Bake until your zucchini quiche is fully cooked, and then allow to cool on a cooling rack for a few minutes.
Slice and serve up this easy and delicious zucchini quiche recipe!
Can I Use This Recipe To Make A Crustless Zucchini Quiche
Not a fan of crust? You can absolutely make this into a crustless quiche. Just grab a pie plate or baking dish and spray with cooking spray.
Then pour the quiche filling in and bake as you normally would. Then slice and serve. I love the crust paired with the zucchini but go right ahead and do crustless if you want a gluten free dish.
Could I Use Summer Squash In Replace of Zucchini
If you want a squash quiche you would do the same method just reach for yellow squash. Instead of adding zucchini, you would add squash.
The egg mixture will work perfectly to add zucchini or squash or if you feel lucky do a mix of the two summer squashes.
Variations To Quiche Recipe
- Use grated zucchini instead of slices.
