Are you on zucchini overload? Don’t miss this easy Zucchini Pie, which is the most delicious way to enjoy fresh summer produce! With only about 15 minutes of preparation time, you can have a fancy and tasty side dish to serve with some grilled meat, or a vegetarian main course option that will satisfy even the heartiest appetites.
For me, zucchini and yellow squash are synonymous with summer. I guess it’s because there always seems to be more of these two veggies than anyone knows what to do with! They are sturdy plants that survive just about anything (including Central Virginia heat and forgetful gardeners who don’t always remember to water them).
In fact, when Casey’s not hauling zucchini into our kitchen from his garden, our neighbors are offering it to us instead.
When I was recently faced with a countertop full of the yellow and green goodies, I figured that I should get to work and come up with some new and different ways to enjoy them. I have a sweet zucchini recipe coming to the blog soon, but in the meantime we’ll start with this savory pie. And let me tell you: it is AMAZING!!
I love to use my mandoline slicer to get really thin, perfectly even slices of zucchini FAST. I’m all about efficiency, and I don’t have to worry about slicing the top of my thumb off (and yes, I’ve done that before…with a serrated knife and a baguette…on Christmas Eve). So anyway, you don’t exactly need this tool, but it’s inexpensive and effective, so I love it. Great gift from Mom, who always knows best!
This pie is so delicious that I’m happy to enjoy it as my main course for a light summer lunch or dinner. But if you have hungry men in your house who expect to see some meat alongside, it also pairs really well with some grilled chicken or fish.
Enjoy, and happy summer!!
