This Israeli Dish Will be the Highlight of Summer

Pashtida, a crustless quiche, is a great way to use your corn and zucchini.

Have you been wondering what to do with all those late-summer ears of corn and monster-sized zucchini? Yeah, me too.

Let me introduce you to a dish called pashtida, an Israeli crustless quiche that often includes cheese, corn, zucchini, broccoli or mushrooms, making it an ideal vessel for all those summer veggies.

Pashtida is commonly enjoyed during Shavuot, when dairy dishes are traditional, or the nine days (during the three weeks leading up to Tisha B’Av), when some Jews abstain from eating meat. But it’s also a perfect dish for easy weeknight dinners or brunch. Here are three delicious, seasonal ways to enjoy it:
