Tuna fish and zucchini pie


I love tuna and I always look for different ways of enjoying it. At local shopping centres it's almost impossible to find fresh tuna, that's why I have to enjoy canned. Yet I'm loving any flavour I get from it!!!

What we need:

for pie crust:

400 ml of flour
150 gr of cold butter
1,5 teaspoon of salt and sugar
2-3 tbsp of cold water or milk

for filling:

1 small zucchini
1 big onion
parsley and dill
2 cans of tuna fish
1-2 tomatoes
thyme
salt and pepper taste
ground bay leave
3 eggs
100 ml of milk or cream
100 gr of cheese
some olive oil

What we have to do:

1. Mix flour and butter, salt and sugar in a food processor until crumbled. Then add water or milk. Make it into a ball, wrap it up into plastic and put it into a fridge for 30-40 min.
2. Fry zucchini and onion in some olive oil. Add salt and pepper. When veggies are done, drain if there is too much juice. Add canned tuna , chopped parsley and dill, ground bay leave and thyme. Mix it.
3. In a bowl whisk eggs and milk and half of the cheese. Mix it in the tuna with veggies.
4. Take the pie crust and roll out a pad. Then fork it and add the filling. Sprinkle some more cheese on the top and add sliced tomatoes.
5. Pre-heat the oven 190C and bake for 40-45 min until the pie is golden brown. Enjoy with a bowl of fresh salad!
