Here’s a simple brunch or side dish. Change the flavor by adding mint or basil to the parsley. Or spice it up with red pepper flakes or diced chilies.


uncooked zucchini

7 small, trimmed and shredded*

olive oil cooking spray

2 spray(s)


4 large, beaten

table salt

¾ tsp, or to taste

black pepper

½ tsp, freshly ground

fresh oregano

½ tsp, minced or 1/4 tsp dried

fresh parsley

cup(s), minced

crumbled feta cheese

½ cup(s)

grated Parmesan cheese

½ cup(s)

olive oil

1½ Tbsp


  1. Steam, parboil or microwave shredded zucchini until soft but not mushy, about 2 to 7 minutes, depending on cooking method; drain thoroughly and allow to cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Coat a 9- X 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine cooked zucchini, eggs, salt, pepper, oregano, parsley, feta cheese, Parmesan cheese and oil; pour into prepared baking dish. Bake until center sets, about 30 minutes. Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes before cutting into 12 pieces. Serve hot, warm or chilled. Yields 1 piece per serving.


*Use a food processor or a mandolin to quickly and easily shred the zucchini. Or you can use the large holes of a box grater.
