This quiche-like Zucchini Pie Recipe is perfect for a meatless Monday dinner or a weekend brunch.
When zucchini is in season, I often go overboard making any and everything I can with zucchini – Chocolate Zucchini Muffins, Zucchini Pizza Crust, and Cheesy Zucchini Rice. I absolutely love using zucchini in dishes in the kitchen. This year, I made a Zucchini Pie and since zucchini “season” I’ve made it three times. It’s SO GOOD that I eat it for days on end! Sometimes I make it and don’t share it with my family, it’s THAT good!
Zucchini is part of the squash family and full of good nutrients and vitamins which make this pie a healthy and filling choice. Plus if you eat this zucchini pie for breakfast, you’re already adding a serving of vegetables to your daily diet! And that’s certainly a win-win situation!
While I like to use home-made pie crust, you can always use a pre-made, store bought pie crust and will have similar results. If you have a simple food processor, I encourage you to try your hand at homemade pie crust. It’s quite simple and literally takes longer to wash the food processor than to make the crust in it.
