Vegetable Slice

My 3 daughters do not like sandwiches in their school packed lunches, sometimes they will have wraps, but mostly they like something a little more adventurous and delicious.  I decided to make a Vegetable Slice using eggs and vegetables that needed using up before our weekly grocery delivery.

The slice went down well with all 4 of my children, toddler boy enjoyed it for lunch too.  You can vary the vegetables you use depending on what you have available.  It would be fab for a picnic or quick weeknight supper too, perhaps with some sweet potato wedges or oven baked chips on the side.



Vegetable Slice 

2 large courgettes/zucchini, grated 
2 carrots, grated
3 spring onions, white and green parts, finely sliced
2 peppers, any colour, finely diced 
5 free range eggs
150g/1 cup self-raising flour, can use gluten free 
100g/1 cup grated cheddar cheese 
125ml oil 
salt and pepper 

Preheat your oven to 180C/160C Fan/ Gas Mark 4.  Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl.  Tip into a lined 25cm square baking tin and level the surface.  Bake in the preheated oven for 30 - 40 minutes until cooked through and set.  Cut into squares and serve, or keep refrigerated ready for packed lunches.

    1. The lunchbox is a YumBox and I reviewed it here: http://utterlyscrummy.blogspot.co.uk/2016/03/yumbox-and-lunchbox-love-notes-review.html All of my older 3 have them and they have lasted very well indeed. Very robust and well made.
