Here is a tasty recipe for a quiche-like vegetable pie that lends credence to the saying “easy as pie.” Once you’ve prepped all the ingredients, you simply place them in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade and process until smooth. The mixture is then poured into a prepared pie plate and baked in a 350-degree oven about 40 minutes. It is that easy to prepare this savory zucchini pie. One bite of this dish provides a scrumptious commingling of zucchini, onions, garlic and cheese, with a delightful texture that is a cross between a cheesecake and a pudding. Zucchini pie is great served warm, at room temperature or cold. Serve it for a Mother’s Brunch, or take it along for a Memorial Day picnic. This recipe keeps on giving and will serve you well when you are wondering what to do with the profusion of zucchini in your late summer garden. Enjoy!
