It’s summer. And that means that zuchinni is everywhere! I usually get smaller zuchinni, but when I went to the farmer’s market last week, all I could get was a huge one – I mean, this sucker was 5 inches in diameter and over a foot long! I had to come up with something to do with all this zuchinni! I found a recipe for a zuchinni tart/quiche, and decided to give it a try. It turned out wonderfully. We had this as a side dish with dinner, but I can totally see this being served for brunch.

- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1-1/2 Tbsp plus 2 tsp water
