Crustless Zucchini and Mushroom Quiche

Don't judge the recipe by the photo, I apologize for the brightness of it. This quiche has a really nice flavor. Serve with a fresh salad which then makes it a nice light meal, perfect to share with girlfriends for a special luncheon.
  • 3 cups zucchini, grated
  • 1 cup mushroom, sliced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil
  • 2 cups cheese, grated (any variety, I used 1/2 cup parmesan and 1 1/2 cups Mozzarella) 
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup cream or milk
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  1. In a frying pan with either the butter or olive oil, place the onions, mushrooms and zucchini. Saute for a few minutes until soft.
  2. Top with grated cheese. 
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, cream, flour and spices.
  4. Pour over vegetable mixture.
  5. Leave all the ingredients in the pan. Who wants to do extra dishes?  However if you wish it can be poured into a greased pie plate as well. 
  6. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 for 35 minutes or until the center comes out clean when poked with a knife. 
  7. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving. 
  8. If you prefer a crust, pour the filling into a crust and bake as above directions. 
*tip if you would like the quiche to have more color on top put it under the broiler for a few minutes but watch very carefully so it doesn't burn. 


  1. How many servings would you say this is?

    1. My pain was 10" and I cut it in 6 wedges. But they could be cut into 8 as well.

  2. Hmmm....instead of one mushroom diced, should that be one onion diced?

    1. Thanks for catching that, I corrected it.

  3. Timely recipe for dinner tonight since 2 huge zucchini's were delivered to me last night!

  4. You could sprinkle a little paprika on top to brighten it up. I use paprika on cheese topped dishes all the time. I think I might have to try this.

  5. I made this this afternoon and its very tasty! There is quite a puddle of liquid in the bottom of my pan...i assume squeezing the liquid out of the grated zucchini would haveh helped?

    1. It you have a lot of liquid by all means drain it. I guess my liquid had all cooked out before I added the eggs and baked it.
      Sorry about your puddle, but I didn't have one so I didn't address it.

  6. I can't wait to try this. It sounds delicious!

  7. This sounds wonderful! I'll be making it for sure!
