This recipe reminds me of my childhood in the eighties, when zucchini slice was the bees knees!
It still tastes good.
We eat vegetarian every second night and this slice comes in handy for those nights when I have lost inspiration in coming up with another lentil recipe!
This will take no more than ten minutes to whip up and throw in the oven (thank you thermy).
There is also the bonus of having leftovers for lunch. It is equally nice hot or cold.
Easy GF Zucchini Slice for the Thermomix
Okay, so this is what you need:
1 small organic onion, peeled and roughly cut
2 small garlic cloves, peeled
4 small organic zucchini, topped and tailed and roughly cut
6 organic eggs
1 cup GF self-raising flour (I use Orgran brand)
100g organic cheese, cubed
1/2 tablespoon Herbamare
1 tablespoon Vital Veggie Power (optional, but extra superfood!)
Okay, so this is what you do:
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees celsius.
Throw the onion, garlic, cheese and zucchini into the thermomix. Whizz on speed 5 for about 5 seconds.
Add the flour, eggs, Herbamare and Vital Veggie Power.
Whizz on reverse, speed one for 30 seconds or until all ingredients are combined.
Pour into a 22x30cm lasagne dish with a piece of baking paper in it.
Bake for about 40 minutes or until it’s firm and golden brown.
Let cool slightly before slicing.
Zucchini slice traditionally has bacon, so if you can source some good quality bacon without nitrates, substitute some of the zucchini for the bacon.
I have also used carrot and pumpkin in place of some of the zucchini and leek and shallots in place of the onion.
Experiment with what is in your fridge, but don’t use anything too wet or it won’t set properly.
If you don’t have a thermomix, just grate the onion, garlic, cheese and zucchini. Add flour, eggs, seasonings and mix together well.
So, that’s my blast from the past, super easy, super healthy, vegetarian dinner.
