    12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 5 medium zucchini, cut into 1/2-in. cubes (about 6 cups)
  • 2 large onions, chopped (about 4 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup reduced-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) feta cheese, cubed
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. In a Dutch oven, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add half of the zucchini, half of the onions and 1/2 teaspoon oregano; cook and stir 8-10 minutes or until zucchini is crisp-tender. Remove from pan. Repeat with remaining vegetables. Return previously cooked vegetables to pan. Stir in salt and pepper. Cool slightly.
  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs and baking powder until blended; whisk in yogurt and flour just until blended. Stir in cheese, parsley and zucchini mixture. Transfer to a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with paprika.
  • Bake, uncovered, 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and set. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
Editor's Note: If desired, thinly slice 1 medium zucchini and toss with 2 teaspoons olive oil; arrange over casserole before sprinkling with paprika. Bake as directed.

    Needs to be adjustable to 2 or 4 servings not everyone has 12 people to serve for dinner

    Wasn't overly impressed. Followed the recipe to the letter and after baking for the recommended time, I took it out of the oven and it looked just like the picture, until I cut into it. The center hadn't cooked, the flour was doughy, like an undercooked pancake and it was 'weepy', a lot excess water. A major disappointment.

    Delicious definitely a keeper. Made as is but I’m trying a version as an appetizer. Shredded zucchini and put in a mini cupcake tin. We’ll see!

    This was super tasty! Followed the directions exactly and it came out perfect. Works great as a side dish for grilled chicken.
