Crustless Zucchini (Cousa Squash) Tomato Quiche


What to do when the summer varieties of squash start rolling in via your CSA share? Try new things.


This recipe is slightly adapted from the Simply in Season cookbook.

2 cups Cousa squash (original recipe calls for zucchini), chopped
1 cup tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup Vidalia onion, chopped
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

1.) Start with the above ingredients and add to a grease 10 inch pan. I used an actual quiche dish from Crate & Barrel.

1 1/2 cups milk
3/4 cup baking mix (I used Bisquick)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
3 eggs

2.) Beat the above ingredients in a blender (we did by hand) until smooth.
3.) Pour mixture over the vegetables.
4.) Bake in 400 degree oven until knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes (it was closer to 40 minutes for me).
5.) Let stand for a few minutes to cool before serving. If desired, garnish with fresh parsley (we didn’t).

This, plus some blueberry pancakes served with Vermont-made vanilla creme fresh, made for a delicious “breakfast supper.” Our 4-days-shy-of-1 year old was able to enjoy all parts of this meal without any adjustments.

Thanks to Allandale Farm CSA for the squash and to my family’s farm in PA, Harvest Valley Farm, for the tomatoes!
