Preparation time: 45 minutes
Active time: 25 minutes
Total time: 70 minutes
8 medium sized zucchini
2 cloves garlic
1 bunch basil leaves
8 oz. fresh goat cheese
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups sour cream
salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 170ºC.
Wash and cut the zucchini into slices of about 0.5 cm thick.
Steam the zucchini until tender and drain in a colander.
Mix the garlic with the basil leaves, salt and pepper using a mortar and pestle or chop the ingredients in the smallest pieces you can.
Take a bowl and mix into the zucchini making sure that it gets everywhere.
Place the zucchini slices in a shallow oven proof dish, layering them carefully so as to be neatly stacked. Between each layer sprinkle with goat cheese.
Combine the beaten eggs and sour cream and pour the mix over the zucchini. Cook in oven at 170ºC for 15 minutes, then reduce to 150° for 30 minutes.
When the gratin is brown on top, remove from the oven.
Try substituting zucchini with another vegetable, and play around with different cheeses.
