Healthy Carrot & Zucchini Slice

If you’re anything like me, you probably have times during the year when your veggie garden is literally overflowing with zucchinis. Well my Heathy Carrot & Zucchini Slice is the BEST thing to make during those times! It’s the perfect way to use up some of those zucchinis, plus it’s healthy and yummy. Win-win all round!

This recipe is based on my all-time favourite Zucchini Slice recipe. You honestly can’t go wrong with it! So, so good…

I like to add a little bit of shaved ham to my Healthy Carrot & Zucchini Slice, but that’s totally optional. If you want a vegetarian version, simply leave it out. But it certainly does add a delicious little flavour boost. And who can resist extra flavour!?

Once you’ve whipped up the mixture, pop it into the oven and leave it to bake until it’s golden and set in the middle. If you find that the top is browning too quickly, just pop a sheet of foil over the top and put it back into the oven. Easy-peasy!

My very favourite thing about this Healthy Carrot & Zucchini Slice is that it tastes just as good reheated from the freezer. I usually make a couple of trays of it and then freeze the individual pieces. That way, lunch is ready in no time at all! Simply grab a piece out of the freezer, pop it into the microwave and in a couple of minutes you’ll be sitting down to one kick-ass lunch.

Oooh and one more thing! If you have little kiddies, toddlers or babies this Healthy Carrot & Zucchini Slice will be a total hit too. I set aside a couple of small pieces for Will and pureed it along with a bit of his formula milk and he LOVED it! A definite winner here!
