When it comes to making meals, sometimes we just want something that we can throw together really quickly and easily, with little effort, that not only tastes great but is also good for our family. Those are a lot of boxes to tick, especially if you are a meal planner and want some mid week dinner ideas, but the great thing is, this zucchini slice ticks all those boxes easily.
It also works well for freezer cooking, baking one or more then slicing it up and freezing for quick defrost dinners when you are short of time. Or a perfect alternative for school or work lunches, in the place of a sandwich, as it also tastes great cold. And the best part of all… those hidden veggies that the kids won’t even know they are eating (hopefully).
