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.

    Yummy, all my friends have the recipe now and make it regularly. We divide it into 8 serves - more than enough.

    Hi Jill, To make this dish gluten free you could replace the self-raising flour with the same amount of gluten free self-raising flour. This is usually a mix of rice, potato and other flours and behaves very similarly to ordinary wheat flour. You can buy it in most supermarkets. Let me know how it works out! -Anne

    Would it be possible for a gluten free substitute?

    The sweet potato really made this dish. Beautiful. I used a cup of ricotta instead of cheese and one fresh cob of corn instead of frozen corn. I made a non vegetarian zucchini slice at the same time for the bacon lovers in the family and this one is actually nicer! Thank you!
