If you’re looking for a way to use up alot of those vegetables in the fridge at the end of the week, then this is it.
Nutrient dense it also prevents wastage (I really hate throwing food out). Better still, its slightly different every time depending on what vegetables you use.
I often struggle to get vegetables into my son. He likes them one day but not the next so this is perfect. In fact I make it into muffins for him that we can take out for lunches and snacks. They freeze really well too.
Its also a super quick dinner to prepare that you can make for the whole family. Served hot or cold and with a salad. I sometimes make it at lunchtime to avoid the evening crazy hour.
I hope you enjoy!
A delicious savoury slice packed full of nutrients that can be served hot or cold for a snack or a meal
Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius
Line a baking dish (the one I use is about 20cm x 20cm) with baking paper
Add onion, garlic clove, herbs and vegetables into Thermomix bowl. Chop for 5 seconds on speed 5. If they aren't chopped enough to your liking, do for another few seconds
Add flour, eggs, oil and turmeric powder to the vegetable mix in the bowl. Mix for 10 seconds on speed 4 until combined.
Pour into prepared baking dish and spread out evenly with spatula
Sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese and mix through so its not all sitting on top
Bake in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes or until cooked
Allow to cool for 10 minutes before cutting and serving
This recipe will also make 12 medium sized muffins or about 24 mini muffins instead of the slice. The medium sized muffins take about 25 minutes to cook and the mini ones about 15 minutes. Just gauge according to your oven.
Most food processors would also be able to make this mixture super quickly or even just use to chop the vegetables and combine with the remainder of the ingreients in a bowl.
You can use normal self raising flour if you'd prefer but as we are prdominently gluten free, I use my gluten free self raising flour mix.
If you'd prefer to use cheddar or tasty cheese instead of the feta, just add chopped up chunks to the Thermomix bowl with the vegetables and it will be 'shredded' at the same time. Follow the rest of the recipe as stated.
You can omit the turmeric but I like to add it to as much as possible for the health and healing benefits. If you want to know more about this, check out one of my post about turmeric.
If you're feeling artistic, sliced tomatoes or halved cherry tomatoes look nice arranged on the top of the slice prior to baking.
