This Zucchini Pie is a wonderful versatile vegetarian dish perfect for any occasion.

You’ll need these ingredients to serve ±4:

  • 2 Organic onions (chopped)

  • 500g Organic Zucchini
  • 3 Big organic garlic cloves (chopped)

This is how I did it

Grate all the Zucchini and put in a colander. Sprinkle over salt and mix through. Leave for about 20 minutes.

In the mean time:

Heat the oven at 220 degrees.

Chop the onions, garlic and walnuts. Fry with a little bit of organic coconut oil until brown. Leave to cool. Grate the Parmesan and crumble the Ricotta. Chop the fresh basil into small pieces. Press all the excess water from the grated zucchini.

Mix the zucchini, onion, garlic, walnuts, basil, cheese and organic egg together (keep a little bit of the egg aside for the top of the pie). Add salt and pepper to taste. Prepare an ovenproof dish with coconut oil, line the dish with rolled out puff pastry.
