Healthy Zucchini & Sweet Potato Slice

This year I’ve had a few different focuses. I want to save money and I want to eat better. I get so bored at lunchtime, that I always find myself wanting to head out for sushi or anything that isn’t toast. But that doesn’t work with my budget plan, so I’ve been making delicious things to have at home {egg sandwiches are my current obsession}.

I am usually hesitant with egg-y things, but I’m coming around, and this one was just packed with goodness. I really loved it. And it was healthy too. I’m sure it would freeze well, if the family doesn’t gobble it up before you get a chance to get it in there!

Healthy Zucchini & Sweet Potato Slice


2 tsp olive oil
1 brown onion, finely shopped
300g sweet potato, peeled and grated
1 garlic clove, crushed
4 eggs
2 egg whites
1/4 cup plain flour
1/2 cup ricotta
250g zucchini, grated {squeeze all the moisture out}
2 tbs fresh chives, chopped

♥ Preheat the oven to 180ºC, and line a slice tray. I used a 20cm x 20cm tray for mine.
♥ In a large pan, heat the oil over a high heat. Cook the onion for a few minutes, until soft. Add the sweet potato and cook for a further three minutes, until soft. Add the garlic, and cook for one more minute.
♥ Whisk the eggs and egg whites until smooth. Add the flour, and whisk a little more until combined. Add in ricotta and mix until combined. Stir in the sweet potato and zucchini mix, and chives. Mix.
♥ Pour the mix into the tin and bake for 30 minutes, or until golden brown on top.
♥ Serve with a salad.

    If you cut this slice in to 12 pieces it is approx 115 calories per serve

    Sounds yummy, easy to convert to dairy free by deleting the ricotta and adding an extra egg.
