Sweet Corn and Zucchini Pie


Sweet Corn and Zucchini Pie
Container count per serving: ¼ yellow, ¼ red, ½ blue, ½ green, ½ tsp
INGREDIENTS

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 ears sweet corn
  • 2 large zucchini, sliced thin (about 4 cups)
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 12 ounces shredded cheese (I used both Mozzarella and Swiss)
  • 3 eggs, beaten

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Heat the butter in a large, deep skillet over medium high heat. Add the onions, zucchini, and mushrooms. While the veggies saute, cut the corn kernels off the cob. Add them to the pan and continue to saute until the veggies are soft, 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. Add the basil, oregano, and salt. Stir once to combine. Add the cheese and the beaten egg. Line a pie pan (9-inch or larger) with parchment paper or just grease a pan with nonstick spray. Transfer the mixture to the pan. Arrange the top so the zucchini slices lay flat and look nice. Top with a little extra cheese for looks, cover with greased foil, and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes to brown the top. Let stand for 10-15 minutes before cutting into slices.

  1. Yes, it definitely reminds me of a quiche, and I think it would make a delicious brunch dish! Make sure you give it some time to set before you slice it though, otherwise it won’t cut as nicely. I would even say you could make it ahead of time, let it cool completely, then warm it up a bit before serving it. 🙂
