peeled, chopped zucchini
sweetened flaked coconut, divided
1 1/2 cups
1 (9 inch)
unbaked pie crust
This was so good! I never would have guessed that it had zucchini in it. It tasted just like a coconut custard pie. If you buy frozen pie shells, make sure they are the deep dish kind- the regular ones are too small for this recipe.
I used this recipe to get rid of some excess zucchini, and I really didn't like it. The flavor was all right, but the texture was not. Perhaps I didn't leave it in my blender long enough to completely liquify it, but I'm not willing to risk it for a second try.
I have made this wonderful pie several times and the family loves it. It is frequently requested for family meals in the fall when zucchini is plentiful. One time I prepared it with sweetened condense milk in place of the milk and sugar and it was very good that way also. A great recipe that we will keep in our files for years to come.
HMMMMMM this was good, I have an 8 year old who detests zucchini and loves sweets and didn't detect it but ate it all. I thought it was a little sweet and will next time only put in 2/3 s of a cup of sugar I also tipped all the coconut in the custard and just added a little extra for the top. I served this with cream, YUM.
Loved this recipe! I substituted sucralose for the sugar and used low fat evaporated milk instead of regular milk. The results were amazing.
I was out of vanilla extract so I used almond instead. I made this with a homemade pie crust. It was sooo yummy. My husband didn't believe me that it had Zucchini in it.
Pretty good, easy on the nutmeg.
I would give this recipe a 10 if I could. As we are being over run with Zucchini, I am making various recipes. This pie is very simple to make and has a wonderful flavor. It will definitely be on my list for next summer.
