Zucchini Flan..Mum's Recipe

.....an oldie and a goodie especially now that zucchinis are so cheap....

You'll need

2 cups of thinly sliced zucchini, (about 2/3 of a large one)
1 tin of chopped drained tomatoes or 2-3 thinly sliced fresh ones
5 beaten eggs with 3/4 cup milk
60 gms each of parmesan cheese and cheddar cheese, grated
basil or oregano to taste(I used 2 teaspoons of chopped fresh basil)
1 chopped onion
2 crushed cloves of garlic
salt and pepper

start by sautéing the onion until quite soft then add the garlic and stir-fry a little longer.
take off the heat and mix in the tomatoes, parmesan cheese, herbs and season to taste

grease a flan or pie dish and make layers of zucchini slices and the tomato mixture(2 layers of each)
pour over the eggs and milk, top with cheddar cheese and bake at 180C for about 45minutes.

Lovely hot or cold

Cooler weather is on it's way...it's been up to 40C in Perth this weekend.....toooo hot for me. Minimum 16C to Max of 30C will be fine thank you very much.
