Ingredients

  • 3 cups shredded zucchini (about 3 medium squashes)
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 3 oz . raw goat cheddar , shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F and grease a 9" pie pan generously with butter.
  2. After shredding the zucchini (I used a salad shooter to make the process go quickly), you'll want to squeeze it well in a thin dishtowel, to remove any excess moisture. You should be able to squeeze out at least a couple tablespoons worth of liquid.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the drained zucchini with the rest of the ingredients, and mix until well combined. Transfer the mixture to the greased pie pan, and smooth the top with a spatula.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes at 350F, or until the top starts to turn golden brown.
  5. Allow to set in the pan for 5 minutes, then slice and serve while it's still hot! Divide the pie into 4-6 large slices, depending on your appetite.

Recipe Notes

Alternatively, you could also bake these in a mini-muffin pan for mini quiche bites! (I found that they are harder to remove from the pan this way-- make sure to grease well!!) For these mini bites, reduce baking time to 15-20 minutes.
