Zucchini and Sweet Corn Pie

This savory tart is only made with vegetables and a quiche batter. No meat. All the flavors of sweet corn, and zucchini previously fried with olive oil. Because I love quiches.

Although the French love sweet corn, we don’t cook it that often. We buy it canned (rarely raw) and mostly serve it without transforming it in mixed salads, bouddha bowl…

I wanted to add some in a savory tart as I just love to put all kind of ingredients in my quiches.

The recipe is very simple: A quiche batter, zucchini briefly pan fried in olive oil with onion or shallot (I tend to preference shallots for its sweetness). You may add cubes of fresh goat cheese, result is was quite nice. You can also opt for grated ewe chesse, Comté, Parmesan…
