Zucchini Quiche

Why can't we spell this "Zukini Keesh"?

Makes 1


3 cups 750 mL fresh zucchini
1 1 onion OR 1 Tbsp / 15 mL dried onion flakes
1/2 cup 125 mL milk
4 4 eggs
1 Tbsp 15 mL vegetable oil
1/2 tsp 2 mL salt
1/4 tsp 1 mL pepper
2 1/2 cup 625 mL white flour
1 1/2 tsp 7 mL baking powder
1 cup 250 mL grated Cheddar cheese
2 Tbsp 30 mL sesame seeds (optional)


  1. Cut the ends off the zucchini and grate the rest.
  2. Chop the onion and mix it in with the zucchini.
  3. Separately, blend the milk, eggs, oil, salt, and pepper using the hand blender.
  4. Add the zucchini and the grated cheese to the eggs mixture and stir them together.
  5. Separately, mix the flour and the baking powder. If you don't mix them first, the baking powder will form clumps in the quiche.
  6. Add the flour mixture to the zucchini mixture and mix them together.
  7. Pour the mixture into a large greased pie plate or quiche dish. A quiche dish is like a pie plate with vertical sides. There is no crust.
  8. Sprinkle the sesame seeds on top of the quiche. These are just to make it pretty.
  9. Bake at 350F (205C) for 30 - 40 minutes. The quiche is done when it doesn't jiggle when you shake it and the top is golden brown.
  10. Allow the quiche to cool for 5 minutes before cutting it. It is still cooking, so don't skip this step.
