So, if you're an avid (and amateur) gardener like I am, you may be thrilled to get your first harvest of zucchini this summer—and then find you have nothing to use it on except zucchini bread. Which you don't want to make, because you've always made that, and it feels kind of boring now. You may also be wondering why you bothered growing zucchini in a house where only one person (you) enjoys them, knowing full well it's because they're the most satisfying plants to grow.

Giant green leaves. Massive yellow flowers that bees like to sleep in. Shiny, deep green fruits that make you feel like you can grow enough food to not have to go grocery shopping. You know.

But as I was looking for things to do with my several fresh zucchinis, I discovered this thing called scarpaccia. It's an Italian dish of zucchini and onion folded into an herby, garlicky batter, then baked. Not quite a quiche, but it feels very quiche-like—which means it's fabulous both as a dinner and as a hearty breakfast the next morning (because the leftovers do keep)!

And of course, with all the greenery in it—the zucchini, herbs like basil—and the onion and the cheese, you know this is a wonderful meal for all things abundance and wealth. So let's talk about it!

Magic in Ham Bone and Split Pea Soup

Threw a little extra sausage on the side.

When it comes to kitchen witchcraft, I feel like people forget how prominent a role color magic plays in it. There was so much green on my table as I got started making this, from the basil to the zucchini, that I knew money would be a key theme here. And zucchinis themselves, being so incredibly prolific and aggressive about it, scream fertility from their very roots and stems. Unlike their cousin, the cucumber, who has delicate flowers and pretty, curly little vines, these guys are big, loud, and so very abundant, making them perfect for luck and money.

Beyond that, with an equal split of the elements of earth and fire, and an equal split of the influences of Venus and Mars, this dish could honestly go either way in terms of fertility. You might use it to help create a family, or you might use it to help grow your wallet. Either way, the aspects of stability, passion, ambition, and beauty will help you carve out the life you're looking to live—all in a deliciously light summer meal that you can whip up any time your zucchini plants start going wild again.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 35+ minutes

Makes 3-4 servings


  • 1 pack of hot dogs (about 6)

  • 3 eggs

  • 45g parmesan cheese

  • 1 cup milk (or 3/4 cup Greek yogurt & 1/4 cup water)

  • 1 1/2 lbs zucchini (about 3 good sized ones), sliced thin

  • 1 onion, sliced thin

  • 5 cloves garlic, minced

  • 3/4 cup fresh basil, parsely, and oregano, minced (1/4 cup for garnish)

  • 1 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper

  • 1 1/2 cups (180g) flour

  • 1/2 cup (60g) corn meal

  • 2 tsp kosher salt

  • Pepper, garlic powder, onion powder to taste


  1. Slice your vegetables, then salt them well and toss, leaving in a colander or bowl to release their water for 45min.

  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit,

  3. Beat the egg, then add parmesan, milk, herbs, garlic, sliced hot dog pieces, and combine.

  4. Mix with flour and cornmeal until paste-like.

  5. Strain the vegetables, then fold the zucchini and onion into the batter until fully coated.

  6. Grease a deep baking dish (a pie pan or skillet) and pour batter. Spread evenly in dish.

  7. Drizzle with olive oil on top and bake until golden brown on top, 35-45 minutes. (You can also broil the top for a little bit.)

I all but ran to the fridge the next morning to eat the rest of this. It's so good! Cheesy, full of vegetables, perfect with fresh herbs as a garnish (especially parsley); it's a dish that really makes the most out of what you've got in the garden. Try it out! ♥
