This crustless zucchini quiche incorporates dill and Gouda cheese for an easy and refreshing breakfast recipe! The dish is SCD and Keto friendly. It's also free of gluten, grains, and soy.
Zucchini season is currently in full swing and I could not be happier! This veggie is one of my favs and for good reason…it’s so versatile!
My favorite thing about this zucchini quiche recipe is its simplicity. There’s no crust to worry about, so maybe it’s more of a frittata than quiche…but we’re just gonna keep calling it a quiche!
What’s in a crustless zucchini quiche?
This easy breakfast recipe uses the following ingredients:
- fresh dill
- diced onion
- Pecorino Romano cheese
- Gouda cheese
- sea salt
The fresh dill adds an almost refreshing component to the quiche while the Gouda adds a lovely creaminess.
The dill flavor definitely comes through in this recipe, so if you’re not a fan of it, reduce the amount or swap it out for a different herb like basil!
How to make a crustless zucchini quiche
Begin by shredding the zucchini onto a thin kitchen towel or tea towel and sprinkle with sea salt (the salt will help draw the moisture out of the zucchini).
Set the zucchini aside for about 10 minutes before folding the towel up around the zucchini and squeezing as much of the water out as possible.
In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, chopped dill, diced onion, shredded romano cheese, and shredded gouda cheese. Add the zucchini to the bowl and mix well.
Pour the entire mixture into a greased pie dish and bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
The sides of the quiche will be lightly browned and the center will be completely set!
Allow the crustless zucchini quiche to sit for about 5 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
