    I came by this recipe from the Parents Action for Children web site, and as the name suggests, it is indeed “amazing.” Rather like a brunch quiche, this is one delicious way to serve summer’s bounty of zucchini. To simplify prep time, use a commercially prepared crust. Then just add a tossed salad and fruit for dessert!


    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 2 large zucchini, thinly sliced (about 4-5 cups)
    • ½ large yellow onion, chopped
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
    • ½ teaspoon garlic powder (I subbed fresh garlic cooked in w/onions instead)
    • ½ teaspoon dried basil (substitute fresh cut if available)
    • ½ teaspoon dried leaf oregano
    • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    • 1 prepared 9-inch pie crust
    • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
    • 8 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
    • (Optional) Fresh grated Parmesan cheese


    1. Preheat oven to 376 degrees F.
    2. In large skillet melt butter over mediium heat and saute zucchini and onion until soft, about 10 minutes. Add the salt, pepper, garlic powder, basil and oregano.
    3. Spread mustard evenly over unbaked pie crust shell.
    4. Combine eggs, cheese and zucchini mixture in large bowl. Pour into pie crust shell and spread evenly.
    5. Bake 30 minutes until lightly browned.
    6. (Optional) Serve with fresh grated Parmesan cheese.
    7. Yield: 6-8 servings.

      The basic pie would lend to many adaptations and additions - think chopped tomatoes, bacon bits - and how about swapping out the mozzarella cheese with Swiss or Gruyère? The recipe photo shows one half recipe baked in a 6 ½ “ pie shell, which is why the zucchini slices look jumbo in comparison. They’re not, the pie is just a smaller one, perfect for 3-4 people.
