Zucchini and Feta Quiche

Recipe modified from

I have never made a quiche before but I have always loved eating them, so when I was planning what to cook for dinner I decided to use the feta cheese in the fridge a d make a zucchini and feta quiche, and  might I say it is a delicious combination!


  • 4 eggs 
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3 tblsp butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup self raising flour 
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup cheese, grated
  • 1 large zucchini, sliced into pieces
  • 1-2 sheets of frozen puff pastry, thawed 
  • 100g feta cheese, crumbled into small pieces
  • 1 tblsp freshly chopped chives
  • 1/4 tsp chilli powder
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed

Preheat oven to 180'C. Whisk eggs, milk, butter, and flour in a large bowl. Fold in Parmesan cheese, grated cheese, chives, chilli powder, and garlic. Spray a quiche dish with canola oil spray and place puff pastry inside to make the case for the filling. Arrange the zucchini in the pastry case. Sprinkle feta cheese over the zucchini. Pour in the filling. Cook for 40-50 minutes or until set. Serve with hot vegetables or a cold salad.
