If you get a hint of exotic flavors while tasting this dish, know that it’s the cardamom and sumac.

Ingredients Needed for Cheesy Zucchini and Mushroom Pie

1 medium-sized zucchini
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
3 garlic cloves, sliced
3.5 ounces of shiitake mushroom
salt
pepper
1 cup heavy cream
4 eggs
½ teaspoon cardamom
½ teaspoon sumac
5 ounces of cheese, sliced
4 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 spring onion, chopped
½ cup parmesan, shredded

How to Cook Cheesy Zucchini and Mushroom Pie

  1. Place the zucchini on your working board and thinly slice it.
  2. 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.
  3. Pour the heavy cream into a large bowl. Add the eggs, and season with cardamom, sumac, and salt. Whisk until smooth.
  4. Preheat the oven to 360 degrees F/180 degrees C.
  5. 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.
  6. Slide the tray into the oven for the next 25 minutes.
