Ingredients

  • 5 eggs
  • pepper
  • 1 large zucchini, grated
  • 400 g carrot, sweet potato or pumpkin, peeled and grated
  • 1 1/2 cups canned corn kernels or frozen peas, drained
  • 1 medium brown onion, peeled and diced
  • 2 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 3/4 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 1 cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese, grated
  • olive or canola oil spray
  • 3 large tomatoes, sliced, optional
  • green side salad, to serve

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (180ºC fan forced).
  2. Whisk eggs in a medium jug, season with black pepper and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl combine remaining ingredients except tomato. Add eggs and stir mixture until well combined.
  4. Spray a large baking dish with oil. Pour in zucchini mix and flatten with a spoon. Cover with tomato slices arranged in a single layer.
  5. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until firm and golden brown.
  6. Rest in the pan for 10 minutes before dividing into 6 pieces and cutting into slices. Serve with a green side salad.

Variation: Substitute other vegetables including baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, broccoli florets, chopped asparagus or mushrooms, grated parsnip or potato and add fresh parsley, basil or dill.
Serving Suggestion: Serve hot or cold, as a healthy favourite for toddlers, children and adults alike. Great to take on a picnic, served as a finger food cut into small squares.

Healthy tip!

Try mustard instead of mayonnaise to add extra flavour to your salads and sandwiches.

    Hi Elizabeth, you can freeze this one, but you might find that the base is a little soggy when you thaw it out. Turning it upside down halfway through re-heating in the oven could help with this! Thanks, Gael

    PS Can you freeze this? It wasn’t mentioned in the recipe’s tags.

    This is much more interesting and tastier than the ‘Healthy Zucchini Slice’, also on this website. I made it with grated sweet potato as another person had recommended that, and used a mix of frozen corn and peas which I tossed into a pot of boiling water then drained. The overall result was good, but I thought it could have had more zucchini.

    Made this the other day and have frozen it so I can just grab it out for an easy lunch or dinner. Very tasty and I will be making it again. I like Catt's idea of adding some cottage cheese or maybe some ricotta.
