Scale

Ingredients

3 tbsp olive oil, divided

1 red onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp dried oregano

2 red capsicums, seeded and thinly sliced

2 large green zucchinis, thinly sliced

12 eggs

1/2 cup (125 mL) low fat cream

Salt and pepper

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

8 slices of bread, cut into 1 cm cubes


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Prepare a 23 cm cake tin or casserole dish by greasing the bottom and sides with a little oil.
  2. In a large pan heat 1 tbsp of oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until transparent (about 2 minutes) stirring occasionally. Add garlic and oregano and cook for 1 minute. Add capsicum and cook until tender, stirring frequently. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  3. Heat remaining oil in the skillet; add zucchini and cook until tender (about 4 minutes), stirring frequently. Drain mixture and pat dry. Add to onion mix and stir to combine.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and cream until blended. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in vegetables, cheese, and half of the bread cubes.
  5. Arrange the remaining bread cubes in the bottom of the greased pan to form a crust. Pour egg mixture into the pan. Bake, uncovered, until golden and set, approx. 55 to 60 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven. Run a knife around the pie edges to loosen. Remove from the pan and cut into wedges to serve.
