For this year’s Food Revolution I made a zucchini bread recipe, but savory.

If you don’t know what the Food Revolution is, please click and read what an interesting movement this is. I’m sure you’ll love it the minute you read the first sentence, the same way you’ll love this zucchini bread the minute you take your first bite

It is a soft and moist tasty bread, with lots of flavors and quite a healthy ingredients list: whole wheat flour, yogurt, brown sugar… And then there are chives, herbs that give you a garlicky but delicate taste.

Author Claudia Rinaldi | Gourmet Project


  • 1.5 cups zucchini or 4 medium/small zucchini
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • 2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • ½ handful of chives
  • 1 cup 00 flour
  • 1 cup whole meal flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Preheat oven at 350°F (180°F).
  2. Clean and julienne the zucchini. Thinly chop the chives.
  3. Place them in the mixer’s bowl. Add eggs, salt, sugar, yogurt and olive oil. Mix well. Add flours, baking soda and baking powder.
  4. Oil and flour the loaf mold (or line it with parchment paper). Pour in the batter and bake 30-35 minutes, until a knife or skewer comes out almost completely clean.
  5. I tried to place two nice chive flowers on top, but they turned brownish, so they become the final garnish :-).
