Definitely a great way to use zucchini, it's not my favourite vegetable but it tends to be cheap and plentiful so I go on buying it! I didn't use the mushrooms, really don't like them, but otherwise, as directed, and it turned out perfectly, a very tasty 'quiche' and a lovely supper. Because we were only 2 I had some left, and that disappeared when my daughters boyfriend came to fetch her in the morning and said yes, he'd love a cup of tea and some quiche ..... no need to worry about leftovers in our house, ha ha! Thank you Tisme, loved this recipe. Incidentally, I did prepare rice especially for the recipe, but it was quickly done while I was busy with other prep, and I then had extra rice in the fridge ready for Fried Rice later in the week!
Tasty--used yellow squash, broccoli, and leek (no mushrooms) and put the tomato in the pie instead of a garnish. Used Edam cheese. This was good!
This was a great way to use up my left over rice. I did add fresh corn and diced green bell peppers from my garden, rather than the mushrooms. Like one other user suggested I only used 4 eggs. Turned out great. A nice light dinner.
