Zucchini Kuku

Zucchini Kuku

I loved this dish even before I made it !  I knew that a veggie packed egg tart off sorts, meant to be batch made so that you have meals and snacks for the week was the next move away from containers of grain bowl ingredients in my fridge.  You can easily enjoy this warm or cold, wrapped in a lavash with yogurt and feta with extra herbs or on top of a simple salad. Versatile and so so delicious,  I promise you will love this dish every which way and will be revved up to experiment with the fillings while you await alternate versions from me! 

Side note: I have never spiraledized a zucchini and the turmeric is meant to be in this recipe, not just because it's cool.
