Tuna Zucchini Quiche

No pastry crust needed. With a green salad, you have a delicious meal any time of the day served warm or even cold.



  • About 3 large unpeeled zucchini, shredded
  • 3/4 tsp. salt, divided
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 cans (6 - 7 oz. each) tuna, drained and flaked
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. each of pepper and dill weed
  • 2 Tbsp. packaged fine dry bread crumbs (I often grind my own bread crumbs


Mix zucchini with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Let stand 5 - 10 minutes. Drain and pat dry. Combine prepared zucchini with remaining 1/4 tsp. salt and other ingredients except bread crumbs. Mix well. Sprinkle greased 10 inch quiche dish or 9 inch pie pan with bread crumbs. Turn mixture into dish.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for 40 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand five minutes. Garnish with green or red pepper rings if desired.


Servings: 6
Time:Never timed it, but not too involved if you buy your cheese already shredded, and use a food processor for shredding the zucchini. The key is too have everything assembled and ready to put together.

Approx. 40 Minutes Cooking Time

Sounds like a yummy quiche but what constitutes "large"? Approximately how many cups of shredded zucchini would that be? Thanks for clarifying.
