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.
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
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.
