Zucchini and Feta Gratin

  • 1 1/2 pounds zucchini -- 750gr 1/4" slices
  • 3 ounces feta cheese
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons mint -- or 1tbsp fresh
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 pinch nutmeg -- grated

  1. This gratin is quickly assembled, and can be eaten hot or cold. The combination of mint and feta gives it the most refreshing flavor. It can serve as a main dish or side.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375°F-190°C. Oil a 2-quart gratin dish with olive oil.
  3. Steam the zucchini for 5 minutes. Refresh with cold water and drain on paper towels.
  4. Transfer to the gratin dish and toss with salt and pepper.
  5. Blend together the eggs and cheese in a food processor, or in a bowl with a whisk, until fairly smooth. Add the mint and nutmeg, and a scant 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  6. Pour over the zucchini. Bake 30 to 40 minutes, until set and just beginning to brown on the top. Serve hot, warm or at room temperature.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
