Still getting used to having fresh organic produce so early in the year.  Living in a warmer climate definitely has its benefits!  This side dish is great with grilled chicken.

Zucchini Casserole
Serves 6

2 tsp coconut oil
2 medium organic green zucchini, sliced into 1/2″ pieces
4 organic scallions, thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp dried marjoram
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp fresh black pepper
2 medium organic yellow zucchini, sliced into 1/2″ pieces
1/2 cup fresh dill, chopped
1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
5 free-range eggs, lightly beaten
5 egg whites, lightly beaten
1 organic tomato, thinly sliced
2 ounces organic feta cheese, crumbled

1.)  Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  Heat 1 teaspoon coconut oil in a large skillet over Medium heat. Add green zucchini, half of the scallions, half of the garlic, 1 teaspoon marjoram, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.  Saute until zucchini has softened and starts to brown, about 7 minutes.  Transfer to a large bowl and set aside.

2.)  Repeat process with yellow zucchini and remaining coconut oil, scallions, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon marjoram, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.  Transfer to bowl with cooked green zucchini; let sit until cooled.  Drain and discard any liquid.

3.)  Add dill, parsley, and eggs to zucchini, stirring to combine.  Pour into a 9-inch casserole dish.  Cover with tomato slices.  Sprinkle with feta crumbles.  Bake until set, about 1 hour.  Serve hot or at room temperature.

  1. HI, I am just wanted to ask your permission to share some of your recipies that i am making with My Maximized Clinics FB page and with some of the other people at the office. I talk about your page all the time! Also made the Brownies and brought them to church this weekend.. they were a hit!!

    Please let me know, as so many people are looking for good recipies that are on plan!

    TY,

  2. You may absolutely share, Jaxs. I really appreciate you asking, as lately I’ve seen my recipes floating around on fb and other sites unsourced (gr!). I just ask that you always include the corresponding URL to the recipes. That way people know where to find it, and where to come back for more.

    Glad the brownies were a hit again! Def one of my personal faves. Thanks for your big heart for helping people! Many blessings!!
