Zucchini quiche

I was telling you about the warming weather here in central Virgina and last night it snowed. Not too much but enough to make me sad. I don’t like cold weather at all. Hopefully the sun comes out and everything goes back to normal.

As the weather was getting colder and the wind was blowing harder we were craving comforting meals. Zucchini are one of my daughter’s favorite veggies and I try to cook some once a week.
I’ve made all kinds of combo quiches but never zucchini one. I got the idea from a vegetarian cookbook. I changed the quantities here and there and came up with a delicious zucchini quiche.

    I've never tried a zucchini quiche but it sounds like a great idea! I'll have to make a small one for myself as the guys are not too interested in quiches.

    Hi Roxana-Such a coincidence, I was telling Lora, yesterday, that I haven't mad a zucchini quiche for such a long time. The only "tried and true" recipe I have is the old fashioned Bisquick recipe, but no crust.

    I would rather prefer yours, with the beautiful whole wheat and healthy crust than the omelet type of the Bisquick.
    Thanks again, for another wonderful and yummy recipe you shared!

  4. Roxan says

    Wow, this quiche is beautiful! What a wonderful meal to warm you up when it's snowing outside. I love that yours is so much healthier than the usual quiche!

  5. Mary says

    What a lovely dish. Your recipe and instructions make it easy for anyone to duplicate your success. It's a beautiful dish. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  6. Dionne Baldwin @ Try Anything Once says

    Well now, this looks delicious! What a good idea, especially for those nights when I think we should go with something besides meat. Thank you for this! I love zucchini and I can't wait until I can grow my own…

  7. Wendy Irene says

    I love how quiche is so comforting and it makes me even happier when there are leftovers for the next day. It is snowing here in Idaho today too! Brrr…I hope you have a warm day soon :)

  8. Kylie @ A Hungry Spoon says

    YUM!! I honestly haven't cooked with zucchini in months–since it was in season in the summer. This post reminds me of how much I miss it! Looks like a super tasty recipe–thank you so much for sharing :)

  9. The Mom Chef says

    Oh my gosh, this looks so wonderful. I love zucchini and am the only one in my family that does. In fact, Dudette is emphatic about how much she dislikes it. It's such a bummer. This is a beautiful quiche. Absolutely stunning.

  10. Guvi says

    As I said, it looks just delicious and I think a couple of kalamata olives wouldn't hurt if added to this beauty. I'm going to try!

  11. girlichef says

    Yeah, it's the same way here. 5-odd degrees last week and now snow. Ick. I'm so done with it! Your quiche is fabulous…thick and gorgeous! Seriously the most beautiful quiche I've seen in ages =)

  12. Kate @ Diethood.com says

    Roxana, this quiche sounds incredible! Zucchini is on my top ten list, but I've never used it in quiche…what a wonderful idea! Thank you for the inspiration!

  16. lisa is cooking says

    Zucchini is so great with eggs. I use it in frittatas frequently, so it sounds great for a quiche. Love the whole wheat crust too!

  17. Katrina says

    Yes yes yes! I would love to bite into this!!! Buzzed it and saved to my faves! I'm thinking this is going to be on my table this summer!!!! Thanks! – Katrina

    Hey Roxana, this quiche looks awesome!
    It is vegetarian week at Get Grillin' we would love if you submitted up to any 3 recipes (they don't have to be grilled) to our link up. This one would be perfect!

  25. Aggie says

    This looks amazing and is making me hungry (at 9:40 at night!). I love that your daughter loves zucchini! I try to slice it up raw with some sprinkled salt for my kids to snack on while they are waiting for dinner…I was so surprised when they started eating it this way. You never really know with kids…I have to make this! (have never officially made a quiche – I think!)

  26. pickaname says

    I’ve added to it 2 sticks of sliced churiso, + fresh oregano & thyme from my pots. Came up real nice.
