Zucchini & Feta Slice

ZucchiniFeta copy
Zucchini slice is such a well known and loved recipe. I doubt this is a new to most of you, but I have added it here to the blog in case you are yet to try it in the Thermo or are looking for a slightly different version.

This recipe with feta and sun-dried tomato is a bit of a change from the usual bacon and onion combination. The feta gives it a nice texture and slightly salty contrast to the sweetness of the tomatoes. If you don’t like sun-dried tomatoes you can substitute them for fresh, or leave them off altogether, and it will still taste great (one of my daughters does not like tomato so I always make this with a ‘tomato-free’ section on the corner!) Use fresh herbs if you have them, you can really taste the difference.  I usually grab a handful of parsley from the garden but you could try other herbs such as basil or chives, just use whatever you have.
This is great for lunch on a weekend, dinner (with a salad), or sometimes I make it and freeze in slices for lunchboxes. Very versatile and good for when you are after a meat-free option.

If you don’t have a Thermomix  you can prepare this using a food processor or by grating the ingredients by hand. The Thermomix  just makes the whole process a whole lot quicker!
