Re-Acting with… zucchini bread

Further to my previous post about Re-Acting to zucchini bread, you may want to give this delish recipe a try! This is yet another recipe from my e-cookbook ‘A squirrel in your kitchen’. Enjoy!zucchinibread
800g zucchini (grated)
1 glass flour
1/3 glass vegetable oil
4-5 eggs
1 onion – chopped (optional)
1 halloumi – 250g (or, cottage cheese)
4 tsp baking powder (BP)
dry mint
bread crumbs
turkey or ham slices (optional)
Grate the zucchini (if you prefer, you can use both zucchini and pumpkin) and then squeeze the water out with your hands. Beat the eggs (add a drop of oil as it gives a fluffier effect) and slowly add the rest of the oil followed by all the dry ingredients.  Grate the onion and squeeze the juice out. The dough has to feel like the dough of a cheese pie- not too watery. Rub butter at the base and around the sides of an oven dish and pour the mix in. Cook in the oven at 170ºC. Bake for 45min-1 hour, using a knife to test the center of the pie. You may have to reduce the heat at the last 10 minutes of baking as the top layer normally bakes fast.

About Mahi S

I was born on the island of Cyprus in 1971. For years, I lived the life of a nomad: I grew up in the Arab Gulf, finished high school in Cyprus, then went to the U.S. for five remarkable, life-changing years of study and work in public relations. With every change of home, I was confronted with the challenge of separation and the issue of identity, but ultimately the rewarding experience of interacting with people of different cultures has informed my life ever since. It inspired me to create an ideal setting wherever I found myself, to live meaningfully and use passion as the main ingredient in my life. I run to keep myself motivated and to fire the kind of creative thinking that keeps me balanced and content. But it’s also an ongoing challenge: since 1999, I have completed 17 half-marathons, which I try to run in a different city every time. In fact, running and travel are the two pillars of my life philosophy: “Travel is fascinating, whether it’s about a series of mesmerizing destinations or a journey within myself”. “Running keeps me sane, motivated and focused!” Right now, I am focusing on promoting my new book, ‘A squirrel in your kitchen’ an e-cookbook with quick, easy and delicious recipes (and anecdotes) from dearest friends around the world. I am also hoping to experience the fascinating challenge of a full marathon in 2016; in Athens or New York. We’ll see!
