Zucchini Slice

My recipe for zucchini slice is one of the most requested on my Instagram (@jennafelicity). It’s no wonder – it’s gluten-free, high in protein, low in carbs, sugar-free, can be adjusted to be dairy-free and paleo, and most importantly – so-delicious-you’ll-want-to-eat-it-all-in-one-go-not-kidding.

It’s also cheap (just over $1 per serve), easy to make, includes tons of vegies, and is good at any time of the day – I serve it in large slices for lunch or dinner with a side salad, or have small slices on its own for breakfast.

Happy baking!

ZUCCHINI SLICE
Makes 12 serves

zucchini slice

Ingredients

2 large zucchinis, peeled and grated, water squeezed out
2 carrots, peeled and grated
4-6 slices (100-150g) good quality bacon or ham, chopped
3-4 spring onions or 1 small onion, chopped
3 eggs
1 cup almond meal
1/4 cup coconut flour (if you don’t have coconut flour, use 1 1/2 cups almond meal)
Optional: 1 cup tasty cheese, grated

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Mix everything well.
  3. Grease or line a large baking dish with baking paper and evenly spread mixture into it.
  4. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until slightly browned on top.
  5. When cooked, rest until cooled and slice into squares.

Variations

  • To make this recipe dairy-free and paleo, leave out the cheese.
  • To make it vegetarian (or suitable for things like picnics when you don’t have access to a fridge and need food that will keep well for several hours), leave out the bacon/ham.
  • Add fresh herbs of your choice for extra flavour.

Notes

  • Store in the fridge for 3-4 days in a container lined with paper towel to absorb any moisture.

    Hello,

    2 questions from a non confident cook!

    1). Would this be suitable to freeze once its baked and cut up?

    2). How is the best way to squeeze the water out of the zucchini?

    • Hi Ally,

      1) Yes it’s fine to freeze! Just layer each piece between sheets of baking paper and wrap in Gladwrap then store for up to a month.
      2) After I grate the zucchini, I take a small handful and literally just squeeze the water out over the sink. Then I also usually put in on a piece of paper towel to get the last bits of moisture out, but this isn’t necessary – the squeezing with you hands is usually enough.

      Good luck! :)
