Quiche with zucchini flower

Zucchini is loaded with nutrients that our bodies seek. Zucchini flowers contain most of the same nutrients present in the squash.

They are one of the favorites of our house.

You can find last year’s relishes with zucchini flower from Zucchini flower flan and stuffed zucchini flowers.

  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 80 gr butter
  • 3 T. yogurt
  • Baking powder

Place the flour in a bowl and sift it. Rub the butter into the flour. Add baking powder.

Then add yogurt.

Knead the dough well until it is elastic and smooth. Place it in a greased 22cm flan tin.

Filling:

  • 80 gr grated white cheese
  • 50 gr curd or lor (ανθότυρο)
  • 5 zucchini flowers (small cut)
  • 1 medium zucchini(cut in cubes)
  • 1 red pepper (seeded and cut in cubes)
  • 1 bunch dill (trimmed and finely chopped)
  • 2 T. chopped walnut

Wash the zucchini flowers tenderly. Remove the pistils and check whether it has unwanted guests in it! Let them dry gently.

Mix together the white cheese, curd, chopped dill,zucchini flowers, zucchini, red pepper cubes and the walnut. Spread over the stuffing mixture and press down evenly.

For top:

  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 50 gr grated gruyere cheese or kaşar cheese(κασέρι)

Beat together egg and milk. Pour into the quiche. Spread the grated gruyere cheese.

Bake in preheated oven at 180° C for 30-40 minutes, or until the pastry is firm and golden brown.

Serve hot, decorating top with zucchini flowers.
