Recipe for the Turkish zucchini soufflé (Firinda Kabak)

Here the recipe for the Firinda Kabak!
(Thanks to our cook Rainer)

1200 g zucchinis, grated
3 eggs
1 onion middle sized, sliced
130 g shaved Parmiggiano (Gruyère)
100 g feta (sheep and/or goat cheese)
5 spoonful of dill
5 spoonful of peppermint leaves
5 spoonful of parsley
all herbs finely chopped (table spoons)
1 teaspoon of chili powder (at will)
1 teaspoon of cumin
a douzen dark olives, pitted and sliced (at will)
salt, pepper, olive oil
about 5 heaped table spoons of breadcrumbs (or flour)

Preheat the oven 180°C

Slice the onions, grate the zucchinis, and SIMPLY mix all ingredients together and put them into a casserole.
Add more flour or breadcrumbs when too soggy. The mass should not be liquid :)
Sprinkle the surface generously with olive oil.
Forget it for 45 minutes at 180°.

Allow it to cool off for 5 or 10 minutes.
Voilà, bon appétit!
On peut manger le soufflé chaud ou froid.
C'est un repas très raffiné.

Is also a perfect side dish with grilled meat :)

This sounds delicious! I'm going to save the recipe for next summer, when my garden has too much zucchini and I have no clue what to do with it. :-)
