    • Zucchini & Cauliflower Bake

      this is really just a quiche, but i love it for breakfast.

      Serves 4-6

      3 spring onions finely chopped
      1 clove garlic finely chopped
      1 medium zucchini grated and drained.
      3 rashers bacon chopped
      1 tablespoon olive oil
      200g cauliflower chopped finely
      2 medium mushrooms sliced
      100g grated cheese
      4 eggs beaten
      1/2 cup cream
      2 tablespoons grated parmesan

      Preheat oven to 180°C. In a frying pan, cook chopped bacon then add onion and garlic and cook slowly over low heat. Drain on paper towel. Lightly brush a casserole or quiche dish with a little oil.

      Press as much water from grated zucchini as possible. Mix all the vegetables together, except the mushrooms. Spread ½ the vegetable mixture in the pan then sprinkle ½ the cheese over evenly. Add the remaining half of the vegetable mix, then the remaining cheese. Scatter the mushrooms over the top. Combine the eggs and cream, stir until mixed then pour the mixture over the vegies and cheese. Sprinkle grated parmesan over the top and cook for 1 hour or until set and browned.
