Zucchini Slice.

Hey you. Yeah you. Don’t click away from me. I know you don’t like zucchini. You say it doesn’t have much flavour. Stay with me for a minute. Let me convince you. Give zucchini a chance.

Zucchini you say? Never heard of it? Courgette perhaps? Whatever you’re calling it where you are, this is delicious.

I know I say delicious a lot. But this really is. I’ve been making zucchini slice for years now, and have been getting rave reviews. Last week I changed up the recipe, made it all healthy and holy smokes it’s better. Even Hubby said so. He said this kicks your other zucchini slice’s butt (or something equally as complimentary).

Get grating.

Zucchini / Courgette Slice

350g zucchini, grated
3/4 cup Self-Raising Flour
2 cups mixed vegetables diced (I used grated carrot, red capsicums/peppers, mushrooms)
1 1/2 cups low fat cheese (you could do a blend of tasty and parmesan if you liked)
1/2 cup peas
1/2 cup corn
2 eggs
3 egg whites
1 onion, diced
1 cup weight watchers bacon (or lean ham), diced

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl – with only 2/3 of the cheese.

Mix together.

Spray a dish with cooking spray or line it with baking paper. Fill with mix. Top with remaining cheese.

Cook 35 – 40 minutes.

Serves 8.

  1. I make this quite a bit, it is yummo hey

    i don’t think my recipe is entirely like yours but very very similar.

    I make a rather nice sweet potato quiche but it is probably not that healthy. I will post it on my blog one day soon.

  2. Squash, zuccini, mini eggplants (not the big ones though – yuck)…it’s all yummy! Am I weird?

    This sounds good. Maybe, just maybe, I could get my hubby to try it. Doubt it though! Worst than a kid, I tell you 🙂

  3. Dorsey – Let us know how you go. I think the bacon will convert the kids!

    Simone – I ♥ sweet potato. Can't wait to see the recipe. 🙂

    Kir – Is the recipe secret?

    Diana – I love all vegies too. Love them. I hope you can wrangle Hubby to try some. I'm sure he'll love it.

    Jo – Make sure you do, it's delicious! x

  4. Yum! This is much the same as my families recipe – its the best fall back for taking to picnics/peoples places etc. Great work making it healthier!!

  5. Skye – Lacey loves it too. Capsicum and all. She’s a good little eater.

    Jen – I’ll keep my eyes peeled on your blog. 🙂

    Amy – It’s a crowd pleaser, for sure!

    Kathryn – Me too, always! LOL

  6. Good one 🙂 I’ve been looking for new food ideas, it’s too hot right now to actually think of any, so thanks for thinking for me!

    I may further look to you with other forms of outsourcing…

  7. Telle I gave this recipe to an old high school friend today, she has an oversupply of zucchinis from her own garden…anyway, her kids and hubby ALL came back for second helpings!

    Going to swap this for my usual not quite so healthy (5 eggs, 1 cup olive oil) zucchini slice!

  8. I just made this – my 12 month old Said to tell you it was delicious! Just a question, have you ever successfully frozen this slice? I made quite a lot and it would be handy to have some in the freezer for a rainy day.
