Introducing SAVOURY SLICE– one of the easiest, yummiest and most versatile recipes. It can be served warm or cold and is an amazing breakfast alternative and lunch-box filler. It is also a great way of tricking people into eating veggies… You would never know that there was 3 cups of zucchini hiding in there!

I make it gluten-free and lactose-free by substituting in gluten-free flour and lactose-free cheese. You can even make it vegetarian simply by replacing the bacon for mushrooms. Don’t be afraid to experiment– try adding in other veggies!

 

Ingredients:

5 eggs

3 cups grated zucchini

1 cup grated potato

½ bunch shallots or ¼ finely chopped leek

½ cup canola oil

1 cup grated cheese [OR lactose-free cheese]

1 cup of chopped bacon [optional]

8 cherry tomatoes cut in half [optional]

1 cup of self-raising flour [OR gluten-free flour]

½ tsp dried basil or chives
