Here’s a simple brunch or side dish. Change the flavor by adding mint or basil to the parsley. Or spice it up with red pepper flakes or diced chilies.


  • 7 small zucchini, trimmed and shredded*
  • 2 sprays olive oil cooking spray
  • 4 large egg(s), beaten
  • 3/4 tsp table salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1/2 tsp fresh oregano, minced or 1/4 tsp dried
  • 1/3 cup parsley, minced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil


  • Steam, parboil or microwave shredded zucchini until soft but not mushy, about 2 to 7 minutes, depending on cooking method; drain thoroughly and allow to cool.

  • Preheat oven to 375ºF. Coat a 9- X 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine cooked zucchini, eggs, salt, pepper, oregano, parsley, feta cheese, Parmesan cheese and oil; pour into prepared baking dish. Bake until center sets, about 30 minutes. Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes before cutting into 12 pieces. Serve hot, warm or chilled. Yields 1 piece per serving.


  • *Use a food processor or a mandolin to quickly and easily shred the zucchini. Or you can use the large holes of a box grater.
