Zucchini Slice

Really quick and simple if you have a hand blender.  Steph bought one for me as a Christmas present.  I admit to being a grouch about it. I didn't want a stick blender (I wanted a pretty and girly bracelet, which I didn't get.)  But, nearly a year later, I can say that the stick blender, esp the food processing (FP) bowl has been a very useful tool in my kitchen ever since. (i hate chopping onions)

5 eggs
1 cup) self-raising flour
375g zucchini, washed, top and tail removed, chopped into 2cm blocks
2 red onion, peels and quartered
1 cup grated cheddar cheese or 1/2 120g of block cheese, cut into 1cm cubes
60ml (1/4 cup) Olive Oil


Food Processor (FP)
Mixing Bowl

• Preheat oven to 170°C.
• Grease and line baking pan a A4-ish size lamington pan.
• In the food processor, finely chop 2 red onions.  Remove from the FP, and add to mixing bowl.
• Beat Eggs in the FP, add flour, whizz until flour is well mixed.  Add to mixing bowl
• FP the zucchini to a finely chopped consistency.  Add to mixing bowl
• FP the cheese with 1/4 cup of flour.  Add to mixing bowl.
• Add the oil to mixing bowl.
• Season with salt and pepper. 
• Now stir the onion, egg/flour, zucchini, cheese, stir until well combined. 
• Pour into pan, don’t fill to the brim.  If you lots of mix, split into two pans.
• Bake in oven for 20 minutes or until cooked through.
• Take out, let cool before cutting. 
• Can be eaten cold or reheated.

Large Zucchini have bitter skin.  You will need to peel it.
Salt and Pepper
Heavy hand required, eggs are not tasty without S&P if you are using a grinders I would suggest at least 1 turn of salt and pepper per egg
