Summer is the time to get your fill of fresh veggies and fruits, and this zucchini pie is perfect for helping you use up what you’re sure to have on hand. You’ll definitely want to add this to your collection of zucchini recipes that help you use it all up this season.
This savory pie will make a great lunch, breakfast or even post-swim snack all summer long. The recipe from Skinny Taste proves that it’s so simple to make this that you can always have a slice on hand.
You’ll need fresh ingredients such as finely-shredded zucchini, shallots and chives, plus flour and eggs to whip up this easy pie.
Perhaps the best part of this recipe is that you don’t have to own a spiralizer to achieve the desired consistency for the zucchini. All you need to do is toss sliced zucchini in a food processor — simple as that. To let out any extra moisture from the zucchini, use a cheesecloth or fine colander to drain excess water away.
Once you’ve got your zucchini shredded and strained, the pie-making process can begin.
Start by combining zucchini, shallots, chives and mozzarella cheese in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, milk, eggs and the other ingredients before mixing.
Combine the flour mixture with the zucchini mixture and pour into a pie dish. Top with more cheese and bake until firm, and a fork or toothpick comes out clean.
Then, you’ll have a savory, cheesy and veggie-filled pie that’s begging you to dig in. This video from the Skinny Taste YouTube channel shows how to bring this savory creation to life:
