Ingredients
  

  • 3 cups grated zucchini and / or summer squash about 1 pound
  • 2 teaspoons Sea salt

  • 2 cups grated cheese cheddar works well
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 3 eggs

Instructions
 

  • Combine the zucchini / squash and the salt in a colander and toss to mix. Set aside and drain for about 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 10 inch round or 7 x 11 baking dish.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the baking powder and flour. Add the chopped onion, herbs, fresh pepper and grated cheese. Squeeze the excess water from the zucchini / squash and add to the mixture, combining well. Whisk together the eggs and olive oil and add to the squash. Spread evenly in the baking dish.
