Crustless Zucchini Mini Quiche...what's in a name!!!

My Crustless Mini Zucchini Quiche is just a fancy name for me to trap you and get you reality this is just a little fancier version of Rice Tikkis/Cutletsand now that I have you here, please have these for breakfast tomorrow and forgive me J

Crustless Zucchini Mini Quiche


  • Egg, 1 large
  • Zucchini, 1, medium size
  • Onions, finely chopped, 3 heaped tbsp
  • Red Peppers, finely chopped, 1 heaped tbsp
  • Frozen corn, thawed, 1 heaped tbsp
  • Boiled Rice, 5 tbsp
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, 1 heaped tbsp
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Mixed dried herbs, to taste
  • Red chili flakes, to taste (optional)
  • Oil, to grease muffin tray


Grate zucchini and place in a colander. Salt it and keep it aside for 10-15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 180C.

Squeeze out all the water from the zucchini. When you think you are done, squeeze it out again – one medium size zucchini should fill up about ¼ of a cup after this. This is an important step; otherwise the ‘quiche’ will either remain soggy or take even longer to cook - both unpalatable options.

Whisk the egg lightly in a bowl. Mix in rest of the ingredients.

Lightly spray a muffin tray with oil. Add around 1 heaped tbsp of mix into each mould – with the above quantity I got 6. Each mould needs to be filled up till about half way and not more.

Bake for about 20-25 minutes, till tops get browned and go a little crispy.

You can add additional cheese on top if you want, I didn't.
