GF Zucchini Slice
« on: June 02, 2014, 09:57:42 am »

[GF Zucchini Slice

A friend posted this on Facebook and I just made it in TMX and it was so quick.  Great for a light lunch or to take for lunch at work.

6 eggs
1 large zucchini
1 carrot
1/2 onion
1/2 cup grated cheese
300g thin bacon
Pinch of nutmeg and baking powder
Salt and pepper

Place zucchini, carrot, onion, bacon and cheese (I did forget the cheese, so did this separately) in tmx and turbo until consistency you want.  Should only need 2 to 3 pulses.
Empty veges into a strainer and press to get as much liquid out as possible from zucchini.
Place eggs in TMX ( no need to rinse) and beat speed 5 for 5 to 8 secs.  Add nutmeg, baking powder and salt and pepper and just wizz again for another second.
Mix strained veges and eggs together and pour into baking paper lined tray.
Bake 180 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

JudyI only used 70 g bacon so added a Umami cube to compensate for the loss of flavour more bacon would give.  I also grated everything with 2 pulses, removed the few remaining chunky bits and cut them further by hand.  I left the remaining mixture in the bowl and used my fingers to squeeze out the very little liquid thus skipping the strainer step, added the remaining ingredients and mixed for 10 sec/speed 4/reverse.
Quick and easy, a nice light meal with salad.

I love the sound of this. It would do us for an evening meal with more veggies.

I am doing my menu plan for the week and have added this. I did make it before and we loved it.

I've just popped this one into the oven, though Mum would like it. I used a 20 x 30 cm tin, has anyone tried a 20cm square tin to get extra height to the slice?  I realise you would probably need to cook it longer but I'd like it to be a bit thicker.

I only used 70 g bacon so added a Umami cube to compensate for the loss of flavour more bacon would give.  I also grated everything with 2 pulses, removed the few remaining chunky bits and cut them further by hand.  I left the remaining mixture in the bowl and used my fingers to squeeze out the very little liquid thus skipping the strainer step, added the remaining ingredients and mixed for 10 sec/speed 4/reverse.
Quick and easy, a nice light meal with salad.  

I might try muffin sized portions next time. Thanks for the recipe kezza and friend.

Thanks for the extra tips JD.  I'm sure it would be okay in smaller tin to give more height, just cook a little longer like you suggested.

Judy there must be a mysterious link as to what we cook sometimes. We have done the same thing a couple of times. ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Just similar tastes I guess Cookie.  It's nice to find quick, easy meal ideas.
