Sunday's Recipe- Zucchini Pie

Okay I said I'd post a new recipe today and here it is! Zucchini Pie! Don't let the name fool you, it was sweet and creamy, and a bit green! Actually, you'd get even your pickiest eaters, who don't like veges, to eat this! Enjoy! And let me know what you think!


1 1/2 cups zucchini - peeled, seeded and sliced  (See Note)

1 cup evaporated milk

1 cup white sugar

1 egg

3 tablespoons margarine

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 pinch salt

1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


Boil zucchini until tender. Drain and let stand in cold water for about 5 minutes, then drain.

Put the zucchini, evaporated milk, sugar, egg, margarine, flour, vanilla and salt into a blender and blend until smooth.

Pour into unbaked pie shell. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg. Bake at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) and bake until set.

(Note I didn't peel mine. Gave the pie a nice light green color with dark green flecks)
