#WednesdayNightSpecial: Zucchini Tart

You made it to Wednesday night and you deserve a fabulous dinner that is ready in a flash and even gives you lunch leftovers the day after.

Zucchini Tarts.

I’m trying out a whole bunch of recipes this summer that take 30 minutes or less.  You see, you’d think that as a teacher on holiday I’d have a tonne of time to spend cooking this summer but instead I find each holiday that I have even less with small one needing me 24 hours a day.

Which will I chose-small one or extra time cooking?  It’s just not even a contest.

These tarts are a perfect solution for us and use what is just the freshest of these season.

Just take six pieces of phyllo and give them a spray with olive oil (I’ve recently fallen in love with Bertolli’s) before folding into four and tucking into a greased muffin cup.  Add shredded zucchini,

feta, chopped mint and cover with eggs and milk whipped together.


Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes (or until the custard is set) and enjoy!


I served ours on a bed of herbs from the garden (cilantro, mint, basil and sorrel) dressed with a bit of olive oil and vinegar.
