Savoury Paleo Slice

Print

August 07, 2014

While doing the whole30diet, I have been experimenting with quick and easy heat-up breakfasts. I am a HUGE fan of the Zucchini slice and modified my polenta version  (which you can check out HERE) to give me the perfect slice that I can grab when I can't be bothered to cook breakfast or I'm simply short on time. It is delicious cold but I like to chuck it in the oven or under the grill for 10 mins just to warm through.

But really, this slice makes a great meal for any time of the day. My toddlers ate it for dinner so I was high fiving myself a bit.....It is grain free, dairy free, gluten free, sugar free and can be nut free so would even work well in the lunchbox.

Ingredients

6 eggs (lightly beaten)
2 medium zucchini (grated)
1 large carrot (grated)
1 brown onion (finely diced)
4 rashers of diced bacon (if doing the whole30, make sure it's sugar free to be compliant - I get mine from an organic butcher)
1/2 cup of coconut flour
1/4 cup of macadamia oil (to keep it nut free you could use any fat here like refined coconut oil or melted ghee)
3 tblspns of savoury yeast flakes (optional - I have made with and without and both are totally yummy)
salt and pepper to taste
coconut oil or ghee to grease oven dish (I use a rectangular glass pyrex dish)

Method

So eggs in bowl first and whisk them up so they are lightly beaten

Add onion, bacon, zucchini and carrot and stir through

Add coconut flour and stir, it will get quite thick so don't leave it to stand too long

Add oil, salt, pepper and yeast flakes and stir together well

Pour into greased oven dish and bake at 180 degree for 45 minutes or until browned on top and skewer comes out clean from the middle.

Slice and serve or cool down and have yourself some ready sliced portions to grab for quick meals and lunch boxes.

Will keep in fridge for up to 4-5 days and also freezes really well.

If you feel like being a bit fancy - add some bacon and avocado to give yourself the slice tower!

Or use muffin trays/patty cake tins and have yourself some individual portions to grab and go! 

So that's it - so easy, really tasty, slices well and is compliant with many people's diets.

Let me know if you make it and make sure you tag me on instagram @_naughty_naturopath_mum if you like taking food pics like I do!

 

Yours in Health,

 

Alisha

I’ve missed zucchini slice since going paleo/lchf and I’ve just been given two huge zucchini. I can’t wait to make this! It will be coming on holidays with us as easy breakfasts and lunches!!

Great recipe thank you. Mines a bit dry but I’m used to my Mums cheese filled recipe as a kid growing up :) so I think it’s just a slightly different texture

Hi Teash, yes definitely a different taste and texture to cheesy ones and if you make it again, cut the coconut flour back a little or even replace with almond meal and make sure your zucchini is a good size as that helps with moisture! :)

I made this slice for lunches today and it was a HUGE hit! I absolutely loved it, and wondered what the kids thought. They both gave me huge grins after school and said how yummy it was – THANK YOU! I have been looking for an easy, nutritious lunchbox filler for a long time and I have finally found it.

I didn’t have any bacon so left that out, and I sprinkled a few herbs on top before it went in the oven. Even without the bacon, it was still soooo tasty! I am saving this recipe for sure. Thank you!

I made your paleo zucchini slice. I chose to leave out the nutritional yeast and it was still the best one I’ve ever made. I made it again last week and cooked the bacon and onion first and topped it with strips of raw bacon and pepitas, delicious. Today I doubled the recipe and made one large and eight small loaf ones, the big one the same as last week and the small ones with sunflower seeds. I’m sharing the recipe around, thankyou

Hi Pearl, freeze it in individual portions maybe and then just get your slice out the night before if you want a quick brekkie. We keep our whole tray in the fridge for about 5 days and it never seems to last past that point! :)

Thank you! I made this recipe and basically ate most of it all myself! Definitely not going to last that long in my house either haha! I substituted the maca oil for melted butter and put in some tumeric as well. Making a double batch tonight for everyone! Thank you for the great recipe :)

Hi Evaluna, it’s quite a firm slice already but if you really want to firm it up, you can always substitute fine polenta instead of coconut flour. Won’t be strictly Paleo then but when I’ve used polenta in the past, it’s a very firm slice. hope that helps!

Hi! I never really freeze stuff like this – how do you go about defrosting it when you’re ready to eat it? Say for breakfast.

My daughter hates soggy textures.. I tried a zucchini slice before and didnt work well. Will the coconut flour make a nice hard consistency or it is a bit soggy?

This is so tasty Alisha!
It will be on regular rotation at my place. My biggest girl has just asked for some in her lunchbox for Monday.
I added some chopped baby spinach and turmeric – yum.
Awesome recipe. x

So we dont have to squeeze the excess liquid out of the zucchinis? Will the coconut flour absorb it?
