Equipment

  • 11" x 8" baking pan

Ingredients

  • 3 cups zucchini grated
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • scallions sliced
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup feta crumbled
  • 1 cup Gruyere cheese grated
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2-3 tablespoon mint roughly chopped
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt for the zucchini
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Instructions

  • Grate the zucchini.
    Place it in a colander and sprinkle a teaspoon of salt, mix it and let it sit for half an hour. Then, press it down with your palm to remove as much liquid as possible.
    Chop the mint, scallions and grate the cheese. Crumble the feta.
  • Measure three cups of grated zucchini and put them in a bowl. Add the chopped herbs and scallions.
    Add all the grated cheese, 4 eggs, one cup olive oil, one teaspoon baking powder, two cups of flour, and one teaspoon of baking powder to the zucchini bowl.
    Mix well and pour the thick mixture into a lightly oiled baking pan.
  • Bake the zucchini pie in a preheated oven at 350°F oven for about 60-65 minutes, until it is golden on top.
  • Let it sit for 5-10 minutes and serve.

Notes

  • Because the cheeses can be salty, the only salt in the pie is the 1 teaspoon for the grated zucchini to remove its liquids. If you use less salty cheese, add a little salt to the mixture.
  • The cheeses should be a total of 2 cups. You can vary the quantities of each type depending on what cheese you are using. 
  • Pie can also be enjoyed at room temperature.
