Zucchini Slice

Zucchini Slice

Ingredients

  • 2 medium zucchini, grated
  • 200g bacon eye, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1 cup low fat cheese (grated)
  • 1 cup Self-Raising flour
  • 3 whole eggs, 2 egg whites, beaten
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 cup of other vegetables, any leftovers, diced

Method

  1. Coarsely grate unpeeled zucchini in a bowl on top of paper towel to absorb some of the excess moisture. Dice the onion, tomato, bacon and any extra vegetables.
  2. Mix all dry vegetable ingredients, flour, eggs and oil in a large bowl and mix well. Pour into a greased baking dish
  3. Bake in moderate oven (180”C) for 35-40 minutes or until golden on top and firm in middle. The skewer should come out clean.
  4. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving with a side salad or slicing into portions for lunches or snacks.

Tip: You can make as savoury muffins as well as a slice. This is a great high protein, high vegetable recipe for lunches or to include as a recovery snack.
