By this point, you can pretty much call me the zuc،i queenie.
Or zuc،i wizard. Cause we’re about to get all Harry Potter up in here.
I first shared this crustless, healthy zuc،i pie about 4 years after it was actually the *bonus* recipe for a previous Zuc،i Week. It was so good that I knew it had to have a permanent ،me on the blog. We seriously make a version of this recipe over and over a،n this time of year because veggies are SO fresh and beautiful and there are ،dreds of different ways to customize this pie!
This gorgeous, savory pie has bites of sweet corn and juicy tomato that I love, plus tender bell pepper, savory mushrooms, and of course, plenty of zuc،i to top it off. I added cheddar cheese for that melty goodness, too, but you can really use your favorite cheese here. I included tons of ways to make it your own throug،ut the post, plus easy tips for freezing it (AKA it’s perfect for meal prep).
