Zuchinni Slice – Sustainable Recipes


This quick and easy recipe can make use of your veggie patch and chook eggs, and your local cheesemaker! For vegetarians, Balsamic Vinegar makes a wonderful replacement for bacon!


  • 375g freshly picked zucchini, grated
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 5 fresh eggs
  • 1 cup of self-raising flour
  • 1 cup of grated mild cheese
  • 1/4 cup of vegetable oil


  • 200g rindless bacon, chopped
  • Large splash of Balsamic Vinegar


  1. Preheat your oven to 170°C. Grease and line a 30 x 20cm lamington pan.
  2. Beat the eggs in a large bowl, add the flour and beat until smooth.
  3. Add either the bacon or balsamic vinegar.
  4. Add the zucchini, onion, cheese and oil and stir to combine.
  5. Pour into the prepared pan and bake in oven for 30 minutes or until cooked through. The top should begin to show a lovely golden colour!
