Zucchini & Corn Slice

w/ Chives & Oat Flour

Another summer garden favourite recipe with zucchini ~ this slice is simple & healthy is great served hot or cold with a garden green salad.

 

I use oat flour as it is more nutrient-dense than wheat flour – it is high in fibre, heart-healthy, anti-inflammatory,

and oats are soothing to the nervous system.

Method

Zucchini & Corn Slice w/ Chives & Oat Flour

 

PREHEAT OVEN 325F | 162C.  Lightly rub or brush oil to grease a baking dish around 9″ | 23cm in size.

 

GRATE ZUCCHINI into a bowl – remove any large seeds first. SQUEEZE grated zucchini to remove a lot of the water content.

 

CUT raw corn off the cob – stand vertically on a chopping board and slice down, cutting kernels off the cob using a chef’s knife. Finely slice chives.

 

CRACK YOUR EGGS into a bowl, add oat flour, salt and pepper, whisk well.

 

ADD prepped zucchini, corn & chives.  Mix really well to combine.  

 

POUR into baking dish and spreading evenly.  BAKE 20-25mins until set = eggs are cooked & slice is firm to touch.

 

SERVE hot or cold.  Serve with tomatoes + cucumber + lettuce & nasturtium flowers or a Summer Green Salad.

 

To complete your in-season summer patch-to-plate table, serve with Peach Blueberry & Daylily Salad or Healthy Peach Crisp for dessert.
