Carrot and zucchini slice

Little Kitchen

When I was a kindergarten teacher this was one of the most popular dishes on the lunch menu. I know you’ll love it too!


Quantity Ingredient
1 teaspoon olive oil, for greasing
1 large onion, roughly chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
4 small zucchinis, grated
3 medium carrots, peeled and grated
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 pinches pepper
4 eggs, well beaten
1 1/2 cups self-raising flour


Quantity Ingredient
measuring spoons
measuring cups
loaf tin
sharp knife and chopping board
mixing bowl
metal skewer
food processor
cake slice or egg flip


  1. Ask a grown-up to help you preheat the oven to 180ºC. Lightly grease the baking dish.
  2. Ask a grown-up to help you put the onion into a food processor and blitz it to a paste. Once the grown-up has removed the blade from the processor, tip the paste into a mixing bowl. Add the olive oil and stir it in well.
  3. Add the grated zucchini, carrots and cheese to the onion. Add the salt and pepper to the beaten eggs and stir it into the vegetables. Add the flour to the mixture a little bit at a time, stirring it in well as you go.
  4. Ask a grown-up to help you tip the mixture into the loaf tin. Smooth out the surface so it is even. Ask a grown-up to put the loaf tin into the oven and cook for about 45 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. To test if it is cooked, carefully insert a metal skewer into the middle of the slice; if it comes out clean, the slice is cooked.
  5. Ask a grown-up to remove the loaf tin from the oven and cut the slice into 12.
  6. Lift the squares onto a plate using a cake slice or egg flip and serve it with a fresh garden salad and a little dish of tomato sauce or tomato chutney.
