Method
  1. Preheat oven to 200c or 400f (gas mark 6)
  2. Spray a 8 inch springform pan with spray oil (if you don't have this you can use a bigger pan, you just won't get the height that you do with this smaller pan)
  3. Season grated potato with salt and black pepper.
  4. Fill the end of the pan with an even layer of the grated potato and then carefully turning the pan on it's side, firmly press down the grated potato around the sides also, until you have a grated potato shell. Spray all over with spray oil.
  5. Place in the oven and bake for approx 35-40 mins until lightly golden.
  6. While potato crust is cooking, add the zucchini to a colander and season with salt, toss and leave it to rest in the colander over a bowl or similar to release it's excess moisture.
  7. When potato crust is ready
  8. Lower oven to 180c or 350f (gas mark 4)
  9. Squeeze any excess moisture from the zucchini and add to the potato crust in a swirl effect
  10. Add the cottage cheese and eggs to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
  11. Add to a bowl with the parmesan and mix to combine, season the egg mixture with salt and black pepper.
  12. Slowly pour in the egg mixture over the zucchini, so that the mixture evenly falls to the bottom.
  13. Place in the oven and bake for approx 30 mins, quiche should be lightly golden on top.
  14. Allow to cool for approx 10 mins before slicing.
  15. Serve with your choice of sides.
