Recipes: Veggie paradise kische

4 04 2010

Lent proceeded once more and I found the same challenges that I find every year… what do I feed my husband that has no meat and he likes and satisfies him? I recycled a few recipes from last year but I also set to try a few new things. And the one thing that came out just delicious was the veggie kishe. So good that I want to share it with you all!

Keep in mind that you can use any veggie that you like, be creative! and find what suits your taste better.

I used:

For the filling:

1 summer squash

5 large celery sprigs

1 green bell pepper

1 cup of broccoli florets

3 carrots

1 large onion

5 garlic cloves

1 cup of mushrooms (sliced)

Spices: Coriander, curry, paprika, salt and pepper.

Olive oil (1 tablespoon)

Rice vinegar (3 tablespoons)

You will also need 3 eggs and 4 ounces of mozzarella cheese (sliced).


I always use the same crust, remember that it gives you two discs. This should be done first.

Slice all the veggies and cook them in a pot with the olive oil. I start with the onions and garlic, then add the peppers and then pretty much everything else, but leave the mushrooms out to the very end so they don’t become mushy. Once all your veggies are cooking add the vinegar, this will not only make them smell wonderful and give them a delicate flavor, but it will force the veggies to release the juices so the flavors will mix. Rice vinegar has a more delicate flavor than red vinegar, you could replace it by anything you want though. Add the spices, salt and pepper.

Let the veggies cook until the squash is translucent. Then take out of the fire and let cool down for some time.

Spread your veggies in the dough you had already prepared. Whisk the 3 eggs and add a dash of salt to them. Pour them on the veggies making sure you cover all the surface, they will leak and fill in the spaces while the kishe cooks. Before putting into the oven, cover the kishe with the mozzarella cheese.

Place in the oven and bake at 400 F until the dough is golden (about 30-40 minutes)

This is not only an absolutely delicious treat, it is super healthy too! It contains all kinds of good veggies that are great for your body, and it is low in calories. I get 4 servings out of it, each serving is about 250 calories.

Remember, if you try it, let me know!
