Last year, I had a co-worker pass along this Zucchini Pie Recipe! It is phenomenal if you like a good cream pie. It is a mix between a sugar cream and pumpkin pie, if you can imagine that.
This pie freezes extrememly well! Just wrap it in a layer of plastic wrap, followed by a layer of foil, toss it in a plastic zip lock freezer bag, and throw it in the freezer.
The blogosphere has been full of talk about weight loss and diets! Well YOU are in luck! This pie can be made with fat free evaporated milk, splenda, and without a crust for a low calorie treat.
First off, you need to cook your zucchini. Follow these easy steps!
Start off with some peeled zucchini or bare-naked ladies as I like to call them!
Dice up the bare-naked ladies into large chunks.
Strain the zucchini. I press the excess water out of the chunks with a paper towel.
Now for secondary ingredients. (Disclaimer: Only one egg was harmed in making this recipe. It landed with a lovely splat as it hit the kitchen floor!)
Mix all the ingredients in a blender! It is almost as fun as making margharitas (almost I said)!
Pour into a deep dish pie shell!
Bake in a 425 degree oven for 15 minutes, then reduce to 325 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes. Sprinkle with cinnamon!
1 cup cooked zucchini
