I realized recently that I haven’t posted many side dishes to my blog. I tend to focus more on the main course and then throw some vegetables or a salad on my plate to complete the meal. Then the other day when I was having dinner at my parents’ house, and my mom made these zucchini squares as a side to barbecue chicken. They were delicious and I was reminded that a good side dish can add a lot toward turning a plate of food into a meal. Sorry I neglected you, side dishes. This one’s for you.
This recipe is kind of a classic. I like to think of it as an oldie but goodie. The texture is like a crust-less quiche. Parmesan and zucchini are always fantastic together, and this is no exception. These squares are light and fluffy, herby and flavorful, cheesy and healthy. They’re a perfect complement to any meat dish. There’s a reason people have been making these for years: they are delicious.
