Zucchini Slice or Zucchini Bake is one of those classic Aussie retro dishes. It boasts a great fibre content thanks to our friends the zucchini but many recipes are laden with white flour and cheese. This version has the added nutritional punch from chickpeas and whole meal flour and I have ditched the cheese altogether. To make this recipe 100% vegan swap out the eggs with your fav egg replacement. The addition of garlic and a generous amount of fresh herbs takes this dish to a higher level of flavour.
