Do you struggle to come up with healthy lunchbox options other than sandwiches/wraps and fruit? Or do you need an easy way to add some jam packed protein and veg to your toddler’s diet? I have been making this Zucchini Slice for Bebe since he started on finger foods, it’s so quick to make and is a great way to use up left over veg. It’s also freezer friendly, so I often freeze lunch box sizes for kindy days.
375g Grated Zucchini
1 Finely Diced Onion
4 Rashes Bacon, Diced
1 Cup Grated Tasty Cheese
1 Cup Self Raising Flour
1/2 Cup Oil
1/2 Cup Milk
5 Eggs, Lightly Beaten
- Preheat oven to 180 Degrees Celsius (160 Fan Forced)
- Combine all ingredients and pour into ovenproof dish
- Bake for approx. 45 minutes
NOTE: I omit the onion (taste preference) and the bacon (I try to have at least one or two meals a week meat free) and quite often double the amount of veg (I use mainly zucchini, pumpkin and carrot) sometimes I need to add an extra egg or two depending on how much extra veg I’ve added. This makes it a little more dense and moist, but still delish!
So easy! What are your favourite easy and healthy recipes? I’d love to add more to my repertoire!
