Zucchini & Sweet Potato Slice is one of the earliest recipes that I shared on Becomingess. I decided to change it up a bit and make it without the feta as I (and most of you by the looks of it) prefer dairy free recipes. So it is now listed as an optional ingredient. I have also included 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes as an optional ingredient, as I found that it makes a nice addition to the slice. But it is totally up to you if you would like to include it or not.
If you are wanting a nut free version, then simply add 1/3 coconut flour (instead of the almond meal) and add an extra egg (so 5 in total).
This slice works well either served hot or cold and makes the perfect work lunch. It would also work well with a salad on the side. Why not try it with my Apple, Avocado, Cranberry & Walnut Salad or Quinoa Salad with Roast Pumpkin, Avocado & Cherry Tomato
Enjoy my new and improved version
Zucchini & Sweet Potato Slice
- 2 medium sweet potatoes (approximately 700 - 800 grams), peeled and coarsely grated
- 2 large zucchini (approximately 550 - 650 grams), coarsely grated
- 4 eggs (add an extra egg if making nut free version so 5 in total)
- 1 cup almond meal (or 1/3 cup coconut flour for nut free version)
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 2 tablespoons fresh chives, roughly chopped
- Pinch of sea salt
- Pinch of black pepper
- 1 packet feta, crumbled
- 1 teaspoon chili flakes
Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees celcius.
Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix until well combined. Spoon mixture into a baking dish lined with baking paper.
Place in the oven and cook for approximately 35-40 minutes until set and golden on top. Let it cool for a few minutes and then slice to serve.
