Font Size:

Getting three serves of veg has never been simpler – or tastier. Our Healthy Vegie Slice is packed with all the goodness of vegetables, eggs and cheese. And it’s a breeze to make.


  • 2 medium carrots, grated
  • 2 medium zucchini, grated
  • 100g baby spinach, chopped
  • 1 red onion, finely sliced
  • 1 cup freshly chopped herbs
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 & 1/2 cups milk

Sprinkle vegetables with a pinch of salt and leave in the fridge for 15 minutes. Remove from the fridge and squeeze the liquid from the vegetables.
Preheat the oven to 2000C and lightly grease a pie dish.
Combine the flour, cheese and mixed vegetables.
Mix milk and eggs together and add the mixture gradually into the vegetables.
Pour into the pie dish and bake for 30 minutes.

    Looks to me like this could have thin slices of pumpkin on top. You could adapt this recipe to any leftover bits of vegetables you had in the fridge as long as you cut them quite small, like celery, capsicum, corn, green beans, cooked potato etc. and you could also slice pieces of tomato on top to make colourful.

    Rather than discard the liquid from the veggies and losing vitamins, I’d save it and add water and powdered milk to make the 1 1/2 cups of milk required for the recipe. Or depending how much liquid forms, just top up with a bit of pure cream or coconut cream if that flavour suits you, or that bit of veggie liquid with a top up of more veggie juice or broth could be thickened with corn flour to avoid it making the slice too wet. Would work for lactose intolerance too.
