Although quite cheesy, this zucchini and mushroom pie is not that full of calories. That is because the main ingredients (zucchini and shiitake mushrooms) are perfect for any diet, having a low-calorie intake. If you get a hint of exotic flavors while tasting this dish, know that it's the cardamom and sumac.




Place the zucchini on your working board and thinly slice it.


Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, mushrooms, and season with salt and pepper. Cook them for 3-4 minutes.


Pour the heavy cream into a large bowl. Add the eggs, and season with cardamom, sumac, and salt. Whisk until smooth.


Preheat the oven to 360 degrees F/180 degrees C.


Grab a round baking tray, approximately 12 inches (30 cm) diameter. Lay the zucchini slices on the tray, leaving a small empty space in the middle. Add the mushrooms in that space. Top everything with cheese slices, cherry tomatoes, egg mixture, and spring onion. Shred the parmesan on top.


Slide the tray into the oven for the next 25 minutes.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper. I’m probably too lazy to cook myself as often as I’d wish, but I always come up with the nicest twists for recipes. I add or remove ingredients, and I feel like a “Master of Ideas.” I dubbed myself that, I admit it. Other than flavors, I’m quite into movies, TV series, sports competitions, hiking in nature, traveling, and learning about other things.
