A light Supper....

Moadim L'Simcha!

With all the heavy, large meals associated with the chaggim, I thought it would be nice to make a light supper for this evening. Truthfully, I am tired of spending hours in the kitchen, especially since we still have more cooking for Simchat Torah later this week followed by Shabbat.

What to make..this was my dilemma. Rummaging through my cookbooks, I found a delightful and easy recipe in my very old and I mean old Second Helpings cookbook. My edition is over 45 years old. 

And so, we are having Mushroom Quiche and Zucchini Italiano Casserole . I'll serve a veggie salad with the meal. 

Mushroom Quiche
This recipe can be made with or without a base. If you want a base use puff dough cut to size to fit your dish. With a fork, punch holes and bake 15 minutes at 180c / 350F.

Fry 2 onions diced
2 cans of cut mushrooms
2 garlic teeth

Beat 4 eggs and season to taste with salt, pepper, turmeric [optional]

2 tablespoons of flour

Combine all the ingredients and pour over the puff dough.

Bake uncovered for 35 to 45 minutes or until firm at 180c.

Option: With 5 minutes to go...sprinkle grated cheese over the top and finish baking.  ENJOY!

Zucchini Italiano Casserole from Second Helpings
1 onion diced
1 cup celery diced
1 garlic minced
3 cups thinly sliced zucchini
2 tomatoes diced
1 pepper diced
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Saute onions, celery and garlic. Add zucchini, tomatoes, peppers and brown lightly. Place in casserole dish and sprinkle with bread crumbs and cheese. Bake at 180c 350F for 30 minutes. ENJOY!

Until next time. Feel free to comment and share.......

Veggie casserole sounds great -- I usually have all that stuff on hand, so that would be a good recipe to have. But there's nothing to bind it? The veggies all remain separate from each other in the casserole dish?

I love my Second Helpings book, even though it's falling apart. Thanks for the yummy recipes and Moadim L'Simcha!
