â—¾2 cups grated zucchini ( about 1 medium)
â—¾1/2 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
â—¾optional: 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a mini muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a bowl mix the zucchini, egg, cheese and cilantro. You do not have to add any salt or pepper since the Parmesan is salty enough . Evenly divide the mixture into the mini muffin pan filling to the top, packed down in each cup. Bake for 15- 18 minutes until golden brown around the edges.

The zucchini is grated so only some of the green skin is noticeable. You can opt to leave out the cilantro .These are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
Super quick and easy to make. Using a food processor to grate the zucchini, then squeeze out the excess water in a paper towel or clean cloth. Add the rest of the ingredients and pack them into a little mini quiche tin. You can certainly double the recipe if you have more or even make them larger then mini.
