Cheesy, creamy and warm! Try this Zucchini Green Onion Custard for your next Meatless Monday…

This creamy dish combines sweet bell pepper with smoky Gouda and zucchini. Try experimenting with different veggies for new takes on this savory custard as the seasons change.

Try to find organic canola oil for this recipe, as almost all conventional canola in the U.S. is genetically modified (GMO), making it one of the most important items to buy organic—along with dairy, meat, eggs and the dirty dozen (plus).
