Zucchini Crust

  • Shred or grate zucchini in a food processor, you need 4 cups. Microwave zucchini in a bowl on high for 6 minutes. Drain well in a colander and place drained zucchini into a clean dish towel. Roll up and set aside. You can do this ahead of time and keep zucchini in the refrigerator until baking.
  • Make sure zucchini is as dry as possible and mix with egg, cheeses and seasoning in a bowl. Turn out mixture onto a silpat lined baking sheet and form into a crust, patting with your fingers until you have an even crust about 14″ x 8″ x 1/4″ Bake at 450 for 15-20 minutes until set and starting to brown.

  • Give vegetables a quick saute in a drizzle of olive oil until cooked through
  • Top baked crust with 1 oz Manchego, and then the veggies. Top all with a final layer of Parmesan. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until cheese has melted and begun to brown. Cut into squares to serve. Makes 6 large squares, or 2-3 servings
