Servings: 6-8

Use your favorite crust recipe or a store-bought pie crust.

Filling ingredients:

• 2 medium zucchini

• 6 eggs

• 1 1/2 cups half & half

• 4 oz. crumbled goat cheese

• 3 Tablespoons robust Navidi's unflavored olive oil 

• 2 medium cloves garlic, minced

• 2 Tablespoons minced parsley

• salt and pepper to taste

Directions:  Roll out and press crust into a greased 9" pie pan. Add pie weights and cover the edges with foil or other protector.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes and then blind bake pie crust in a 425F oven for 10-15 minutes. Cool.  To prepare the filling, grate and salt the zucchini, then squeeze/wring out any excess liquid in a clean dishtowel.  Heat olive oil in saute pan and saute zucchini with garlic until lightly golden.  Scatter zucchini in bottom of blind-baked and cooled crust, along with goat cheese.  Beat together eggs, half & half, salt & pepper, and parsley.  Pour over top.  Cook in a 350F oven for 30-40 until set but ever so slightly jiggly in middle.  Remove foil on crust's edges for last few minutes to get a golden color.  Enjoy!
