Zucchini Slice

This delicious Zucchini Slice is great as a side or the main event, it’s packed full of veggies, and it’s great for lunch or dinner on the go – it can be eaten hot or cold and is just as good – and good for you! You can easily add any other veggies you need to use up to increase your veggie intake, and there are options for gluten free, vegetarian and vegans.

Zucchini Slice freezes well wrapped tightly in cling film or in a full container and can be cooled and reheated.
