Tuna and Vegetable Slice

Could anything be simpler? Tuna from a can with nutritious grated vegetables and cheese to round out a good proportion of your daily dietary requirements.

Time: 80 minutes 

Serves: 4


  • 80g ground almonds
  • 60g raw (natural) oats
  • 1 x 425g tin tuna in spring water, drained and flaked
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 80g cheddar, finely grated
  • 150g broccoli, finely chopped
  • 150g zucchini, coarsely grated and squeezed dry
  • 2 teaspoons dried mixed herbs 


Preheat the oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced). Line the base and sides of an 18cm x 8cm loaf tin with baking paper.

To make the tuna loaf, combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and season to taste with freshly ground black pepper. Transfer the mixture to the prepared tin and bake for 45 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Cool in the tin for 10 minutes before slicing.
