Alright already, I hear you loud & clear! Lets have a break from this seafood obsession of late, shall we? What about some vegetables for a change.

I have this no-fail recipe for parties & big gatherings, it is delicious, always successful, and best of all an absolute no-fail. Ever! A favourite of Jiji’s, and a favourite of Jacob’s my grand nephew, he calls them “zucchini brownies”!


4 cups grated zucchini

4 green onions sliced

1 clove garlic

4 tbsp fresh dill

Salt & pepper


4 eggs

½ cup cream

1 cup grated gruyere

1 cup grated cheddar


Place the grated zucchini in a colander, sprinkle with salt, and set it on a bowl to drain for a couple of hours. Squeeze it dry every time you pass by. You want the zucchini to release a lot of its liquid otherwise your pie will not set.

Place your drained zucchini in a frying pan, add the green onion, garlic, and dill. Saute together lightly, just to combine.

Spread the mixture into a baking pan

add the grated cheese and mix well with your hands to combine zucchini & cheese uniformly throughout

Beat the eggs & cream and add to the vegetable/cheese mixture

Bake in pre heated 190 centigrade oven for 30mns. Should be golden and puffed up.

Let it cool down, cut it into squares, and transfer it to your serving dish.


So easy, so quick… Absolutely delicioushot or cold. Try it, you will not be sorry!
