Heat oven to 190°C. Lightly coat a 20 cm square or round baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add onion; sauté until softened, 3 minutes. Stir in zucchini. Increase heat to medium-high; sauté until zucchini is soft and the liquid has evaporated, 7 to 10 minutes. Stir in ¼ tsp salt. Remove from heat.
In a large bowl, beat eggs, milk and remaining ¼ tsp salt. Add carrot, zucchini, cheese and dill. Spread in prepared pan.
Bake until quiche is just set in the centre, about 45 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting. Serve warm or at room temperature.

I thought it needed more eggs, so I added an extra one plus half a cup of SR Flour as there was plenty of moisture after that. Next time I would use 4 eggs and 1 cup of SR Flour to make it a bit more solid in texture. - 24 Nov 2008
As I am off on holiday I wanted to use up what was left in my fridge. I had a large zuchhini, a couple of carrots, 3 eggs, onion, red capsicum and a mushroom or 2. Also 1 slice of bacon. Found this recipe. I cooked the diced veg along with the casps., and bacon in the MW. with a dob of butter till just cooked. Drained the juice off. Added the beaten egg, carrot, cheese dill and mushroom mix. Baked as per the recipe. YUMMY!!!! Will make this again and again. Great way to use up the odd veggies. - 04 Jun 2012
