Zucchini Quiche Recipe
On a Rice Base

This zucchini quiche recipe offers a nice twist with its rice base, which makes it unique compared to other quiche recipes. Making a quiche is just one of the many savoury dishes than can be prepared using zucchini. Zucchini muffins are another favourite of mine.

Another name for the zucchini is the courgette both are commonly used in different areas all around the globe. With the zucchinis many names I often used to confuse the zucchini with cucumber as they are both green look similar on the inside and can have the same shape. However cucumbers are often eaten raw while zucchini is mostly served cooked.
