zucchini + feta slice

Once upon a time I was the queen of the frittata…………….but the frittata needed a bit of a rebrand here at retro mummy. A bit of a revamp. Because just the very word frittata was bringing out groans from everyone including retro daddy. Here was my all time favourite – sweet potato and feta frittata. So get the thermomix out, whizz everything up, call it a slice and voila everyone is eating it. Even when I say zucchini. Yes, that is a green vegetable and I have some little people who are not fans of vegetables and especially of the green variety.

This is super easy. I had been making the zucchini and bacon slice in the thermomix but we’ve been eating much less meat in the house and feta is just the best replacement ever. You only need a few ingredients for this one, can whip it up on a weeknight and  you don’t have to use a thermomix or food processor. A grater would work fine – just watch those fingers and knuckles if you’re like me with a grater. We especially like this with garlic bread.

Recipe type: Vegetarian
Serves: 6
What you'll need
  • ½ red onion
  • 2Tbsp oil
  • 2 large zucchinis
  • 6 eggs
  • 200g feta (we love danish feta here!)
  • 4Tbsp flour
Instructions
  1. Cut onion into quarters and place in thermomix bowl. Process for 5 seconds on speed 4. Scrape down sides. Add oil and heat for 2 minutes, 90 degrees and speed 1.
  2. Add in roughly chopped zucchini and process depending on how chunky you want your zucchini. For this house it's finely chopped all the way so I do a couple of seconds on speed 4. If you want chunky just press turbo once or twice.
  3. Add in eggs, feta and flour. Process for 5 seconds on speed 3.
  4. **Pour into a lined square tin and bake for about 25-30 minutes in a 200C/400F oven until nicely golden on top.
  5. Leave for a couple of minutes in the tin then slice and enjoy.
  6. If you don't have a thermomix then just make it all in a food processor and if you don't have a food processor, grate the onion and zucchini. Lightly saute your onion for a few minutes. Whisk the eggs and combine all ingredients and follow from **.

  1. Thanks for the recipe. This could replace the humble quiche in my kids lunch boxes.

  2. Natalie Earl says:

    Love quick and easy around here – especially during the week amongst all the swimming/ballet/soccer practices

  3. Fab I am going to make it for lunch !

  4. Ooh how lucky, I have ‘zucchini slice’ on my menu for the week, but haven’t yet looked for a recipe! I just bought lots of zucchini and eggs when I shopped. No feta, but lots of bacon and onion, so should be good to go. Thank you!

  5. I make zucchini slice (you know the one – bacon, cheese, flour, zucchini and onion and oil) and I had friends say their kids wouldn’t eat it.. I said my secret is I call it ‘Bacon Bread’ and everyone seems to love it lol!

  6. What a great idea! Feta is definitely a great replacement for meat – it adds so much flavour to any dish. Will have to try this for lunches and snacks xx

  7. I love a zucchini slice but have never thought of using feta. Thanks for the idea.

  8. Mama of 2 boys says:

    Ooooo I love love LOVE the look and sound of this one Corrie. My boys are not big fans of quiche or the frittata either, but this one looks yummo! They do love feta, so I’ll be off on a good start already. Thank you for sharing xoxo

  9. I wonder if I make this, if I’ll end up eating it all myself? Might give it a go today since I have all of those ingredients (to my shock) apart from the red onion. Thanks.

    • oh you can skip the onion easily! just make it from zucchini onwards! enjoy, it’s really great cold too!

  10. Thanks for the recipe Corrie! I’ve added it to my weekly Thermomix meal plan and can’t wait to try it! You’ll find my meal plan at http://www.onecraftymum.com/this-weeks-meal-plan-oct-28-nov-3-2013/ :)

  11. I love this recipe! Perfect for picnics and mothers group!
    Can you freeze it, do you think?

  12. Looks yum but my ds is allergic to egg :-( do you think it work with egg replacer or do you suggest something else? Thanks :)

  13. Oh that looks super yummy! I’ll be adding that to the weekend cook up!

  14. This sounds delicious, I’m about to give it a go. Can you freeze it?

  15. A massive fave of mine! I add a carrot in with the zucchini sometimes too. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
