Ingredients for Gluten Free Zucchini Slice
Ok, so most zucchini slice recipes are based on wheat flour and loaded with cheese. To make this more gut friendly Zucchini Slice you will need:
- brown onion
- spring onion (shallots)
- eggs - I always opt for free range and organic if possible
- extra virgin olive oil - always use extra virgin as it is much less processed & more nutrient dense
- buckwheat flour - high in B vitamins and an excellent gluten free flour to use in place of wheat flour
- baking powder - I opt for a gluten free and aluminium free baking powder
- arrowroot flour - tapioca starch or corn flour can be used if arrowroot flour can't be sourced
- sea salt & cracked black pepper
- bacon - if you are a coeliac, make sure the bacon you choose is gluten free
- cherry tomatoes - I love the tang that the cherry tomatoes add, but my kids don't like them as much. It's totally up to you if you add them or not!
How to Healthy Make Zucchini Slice

Tips For Making
Here are some tips for making the best zucchini slice:
- make sure to grate the carrot on the fine side of the grater. This helps the carrot to almost dissolve into the mixture as it bakes.
- grate the zucchini on the course side of the grater - zucchini shrinks a lot as it cooks in this slice and still gives a nice texture to the slice when coarsely grated. Plus it helps it to stand out a bit more - this is a zucchini slice after all!
- grating the onion means that you don't get big chunks of undercooked onion throughout the slice. It also gives the slice a really lovely consistency and flavour.
- Sieve the baking powder because nobody like lumps of baking powder in their zucchini slice!
