Zucchini has taken over my house.
My kids will divorce me for sure if I serve them one more zucchini dish. Add my veggie obsession to mealtime, and I guess I am asking for the heavy sighs. I still occasionally get the rolled eyes, but funny how there were no zucchini shreds left behind.
Here is one of the things I have been serving up at Zucchini Central. This was breakfast, 2 Sundays ago.
Zucchini Cheese Casserole
2 cups shredded zucchini (make friends with your food processor everyone!)
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 cup shredded light cheddar cheese mix (or non-dairy Daiya cheese)
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp sea salt
1 cup whole grain pancake mix (I used Buckwheat pancake mix, but any other would work)
3 egg whites
4 whole eggs
2 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat oven 350F.
Use cooking spray to coat a medium size round dish.
In a small bowl combine the eggs, egg whites, olive oil, salt and basil.
In a larger bowl combine the zucchini, onion, cheese and pancake mix.
Mix the egg mixture into the zucchini mixture. Mix well and transfer to pre-oiled dish.
Bake for 45-48 minutes or until cooked through and golden.
