Vegetable Slice

Friday, 27 May 2016
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. This lunchbox is great! I'm looking for something similar for my daughter. Do you remember where you bought it please?

    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.
