An easy and super tasty Zucchini and Vegetable Slice recipe that’s a perfect freezer-friendly dish to prepare for a new mum.

When a friend or family member has a baby and becomes a new mum, I like to give them some freezer-friendly food. It means they have a quick snack on hand if they’re hungry and haven’t managed to get to the supermarket. This Zucchini and Vegetable Slice is the perfect freezer food for new mums. It can be served up as lunch, put in the lunchbox for work or school, dished up as an easy dinner or even doubles as a snack for unexpected visitors.

This slice is really yummy and filled with so many vegetables – my kids really enjoy it too! This recipe can be made the old fashion way with a grater and mixing bowl, or using a Thermomix (both recipes are below).

I often make this Zucchini and Vegetable Slice the conventional way – and it’s so easy! Simply grate or chop all your desired veggies (I use zucchini, carrot, corn, and onion) and pop them in a bowl with your diced bacon, cheese, flour, oil and eggs.

Spoon the mixture into a baking tin or mini loaf pan for individual servings, sprinkle with parmesan cheese and bake until golden and cooked through (normally about 35 to 45 minutes).

Once cooked, cut if you cooked as a big slab and cut into individual portions and freeze into a freezer safe container ready for lunches for work or school.

This is very similar to the Taste zucchini slice recipe. I use 1/4 cup melted butter instead of the oil.

I have a similar zucchini pie recipe but the prep work is why I don’t make it often. Might have to try this one… dairy free for this house though.

I make a version of this every week. Sometimes use grated carrot instead of corn….good for all occasions!

This looks fab. Cleverly disguised veggies for my fussy toddler. And as for the question about meals to freeze…..hubby works away so I have a good stash of bolognese, stews, fried rice and risottos in the freezer. So I usually only have to prepare the side dishes or the odd serve of meat/chicken/fish. For those times when I need to get dinner pronto.

argh! The top of it says cook time 25 minutes, and the instructions say 35-40…should have read the whole thing before I committed to it. Boys’ll be having vegemite sandwiches tonight I think, while Hubby and I have a late dinner.

I have a recipe that is quite similar to this. I don’t like the oil in it so I just add an extra egg instead and it turns out perfectly 🙂

This is one of my favourite sides so easy and more flavours than zucchini slice. It is really a recipe you can just throw everything in a bowl, mix and bake 🙂

So easy and delicious. I like to make these up and freeze into portions for lunch snacks through the week also

Hi Kat, thank you for the reminder of this easy bake dinner/lunch idea. A great thing to cook at this time of the year when we have lots of end of year school activities that can be left in the fridge or in the freezer. One thing that I change is I add feta cheese instead of the bacon to make it meat free and we find it tastes just as tasty. Thanks once again, Catherine

Oh feta would be so yummy in this! Thanks for sharing. Kat x
