Let us walk you through some of the simple steps to this recipe.

The first thing you need to do is prepare your ingredients. I grated the zucchini, carrots, and the broccoli too. This ensures your veggies will cook through quickly and it also seems to be a great way to disguise the vegetables, ideals for parents with kids that are a little picky.

Add the grated vegetables to a bowl along with the spring onions. At this point, you can add meat if you want a more protein-rich version or omit. Bacon works well or a little free-range shredded chicken. Cheese is also an option, this can also be left out and the recipe will still work just as well.

Now, you can go ahead and add the parsley, and flour. whisk the ingredients together until they are well combined.

Go ahead and add the liquid ingredients, the eggs, 'milk' and oils. Mix again, until you have a smooth batter.

Scrape the mixture into a pre-greased heatproof dish and pop it into the oven. Bake the zucchini and carrot slices until they are firm, this could take around 30 minutes.

Once the mixture is cooked through remove it from the oven and cut into slices. They are delicious served warm or cold.

If you want to make a meal of it, serve the slices with a yummy side salad, some ripe avocado or a crunchy slaw. Drizzled with lashings of extra virgin olive oil and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
