Sfougato (Crustless Zucchini Quiche)

Slice of crustless zucchini quiche with a fork and a bite taken out

This crustless zucchini quiche is based upon a Greek egg recipe called sfougato. Made with zucchinis, tomatoes, and baby spinach, you can serve this protein & veggie-packed dish for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!


  • 4 medium zucchini (3 grated & 1 sliced)
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 cup baby spinach, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese or your favorite shredded cheese
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium tomato, sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a 9-inch round pan.
  2. Trim zucchini ends and coarsely grate zucchini. Place the zucchini in a colander set over a large bowl. Sprinkle a generous pinch of salt over the grated zucchini. With your hands or a spoon, press the zucchini so that excess liquid runs out of the colander and into the bowl. Set aside.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent (2-3 minutes). Add the grated zucchini, salt, and pepper and cook for 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and add the cooked zucchini, baby spinach, parsley and grated cheese. Mix to combine, then add the remaining olive oil. Mix again to combine well.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Top with sliced zucchini and tomato and bake for 35-40 minutes, until it’s light golden brown on top.
  6. Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes, then slice and serve warm.


  • Testing for doneness: In addition to the quiche being lightly golden on top, I also like to make a small cut in the center of the quiche with a sharp knife. If I don’t see any raw egg inside, then the quiche is done. 
  • Storage: This zucchini quiche can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Wrap in saran wrap or store in an air-tight container (freezer-safe container if freezing).
