Meatless Monday: Zucchini Quiche

I encountered this recipe on the Dutch website Culy and it looked so easy and yummy, I just had to make it :) It is one of the better quiches I made and it tastes great for dinner and lunch.

Zucchini Quiche (serves 4)
- 700gr zucchini
- 5 eggs
- 125ml olive oil
- a bunch of chives, chopped
- a bunch of basil, chopped
- 220gr feta cheese
- 150gr grated Parmazan
- 150 gr self rising flour
- 8-12 cherry tomatoes
- salt and pepper

Grate the zucchini. I used the food processor for this. Place the zucchini in a colander and press all the moist out. Whisk the eggs in a bowl with the olive oil, chives and basil. Add the zucchini, salt, pepper, feta (but save some for on top), Parmazan, and mix well. Then add the flour and mix again. Place a baking sheet in an oven dish and add the batter. On top crumble some more of the feta and press in the cherry tomato halves with the seedy side up. Place it in a pre heated oven on 180 degrees for about 45-50 minutes. Let it cool down for about 15 minutes before you lift it from the oven dish. The quiche tastes best on room temperature.

MMMM is a weekly carnival dedicated to those interested in improving their personal health and the health of the planet by reducing meat consumption one day a week. Every Monday you have a chance to feature a link to something meatless. It doesn’t have to be a recipe {although that would be nice}, it can be a picture of a meatless meal you ate that week, an interesting article you read about meat consumption, a post on your blog about going meatless, perhaps a post on someone else’s blog you found helpful, anything Meatless Monday appropriate.
