Crustless Zucchini Pie – Armenian Style! (aka Tutumov Boreg)

When my local farmer’s market advertised home-grown
zucchini for $.19 a lb. this past week, I thought it was a misprint.
Lo-and-behold, it was FACT! I sent my husband down to snatch-up a bunch. While he shopped, I thumbed
through my recipe file.

With so many zucchini favorites, I couldn’t decide where to
start, so I chose a dish some Armenians I know call ‘Tutumov Boreg’.


When I think of boreg, I envision a filling wrapped in
Phyllo dough. So, I’m calling this Crustless Zucchini Pie – Armenian Style!

This can be served for breakfast, brunch, lunch,
or supper – just add a fruit salad or tossed salad, and some crusty bread and you’re good to go!

Crustless Zucchini Pie – Armenian Style

Serves about 6 to 8


Ingredients:


4 medium zucchini
4 eggs, beaten
½ c. Monterey Jack cheese, shredded (any mild cheese that
melts well can be used)
½ cup crumbled feta cheese
½ cup all-purpose flour
½ tsp dried oregano
1 tsp. Kosher salt
¼ tsp. black pepper
¼ tsp. Aleppo pepper, optional


Directions:


Rinse and peel the zucchini zebra-style. 


Using a box grater
or food processor, shred the zucchini. 


Place a colander in the sink and add the
shredded zucchini; sprinkle a little salt over the zucchini and allow to sit
for about 10 minutes to help draw moisture out. Using your hands, squeeze out
as much of the zucchini’s liquid as possible. If necessary, place the zucchini
in towels to squeeze out excess liquid.

In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients until
well-mixed.

Preheat oven to 375°F. Place the mixture in a lightly
greased 8”x 8” baking pan or 9-inch pie pan. Bake for about 40 – 45 minutes if
using the 8-inch pan, or 30 -35 minutes if using the 9-inch pan. The top should
be lightly golden brown and a knife inserted in the center should come out clean.
