This sweet corn and zucchini Pie are seriously easy to whip up and the perfect way to enjoy summer produce. An excellent meatless meal baked into a delicious, cheesy crustless pie!
8 oz. sliced mushrooms
1 tbsp dried basil
4 tbsp butter
half of a yellow onion, diced
2 large zucchini, sliced very thinly (about 4 c.)
1 tsp dried oregano
2 ears of sweet corn
12 oz. shredded cheese (in this recipe, I used both Mozzarella and Swiss)
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 tsp salt
How to make Sweet Corn And Zucchini Pie
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees.
Step 2: In a large, deep skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Once melted, add the onions, zucchini, and mushrooms. Meanwhile, cut the corn kernels off the cob, then add them to the pan. Saute for 5 to 10 minutes until the veggies are tender. Once done, take the skillet off the heat and let the mixture cool for a couple of minutes.
Step 3: Then, add the basil, oregano, salt, cheese, and beaten eggs. Stir well.
Step 4: Using parchment paper, line a (9-inch or larger) pie pan. Alternatively, you can just grease the pan using a nonstick spray.
Step 5: Into the prepared pan, transfer the mixture, making sure to arrange the top so the slices of zucchini are laying flat. On top, sprinkle with more cheese.
Step 6: Tent the dish with foil and place it in the preheated oven. Bake for about 20 minutes. Uncover and continue baking for another 5 minutes or until the top is brown.
Step 7: Before cutting into slices, allow the pie to rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
I suggest putting a pan under to catch the drips as the pie will bubble up a bit as it bakes. Also, when I sliced the pie, there was a bit of extra water in the bottom, but the pieces held beautifully together. So, I recommend letting the pie rest for a few minutes before slicing.
Before serving, I sprinkle some fresh herbs on top. I like parsley and cilantro, but basil would also be perfect.
