Servings: 4-6 people
Carbohydrate Serves: practically 0 per person
(1 carbohydrate serve = 15 grams of total carbohydrate)
This hardly takes any time to prepare, is gestational diabetes friendly and goes great with a good steak or a grilled piece of fish. Kids love it too. (Main carbohydrate containing ingredients are listed in bold.)
- 6 zucchini, trimmed, halved and cut into 2cm pieces
- 2 tablespoons ginger, finely grated
- 3 eggs, whisked
- 250g/ ~9 ounces grated Parmesan
Preheat oven to 180°C/ 160°C fan-forced/ 350ºF.
Bring a large saucepan of water to boil. Briefly blanch zucchini for around 3-4 minutes to just soften it slightly. Drain really well and spread evenly in a large glass or ceramic baking dish.
Whisk ginger, egg and half the parmesan cheese together. Pour mixture evenly over zucchini. Sprinkle remaining Parmesan on top and bake for around 15 minutes until egg is cooked and cheese is turning golden.
This recipe looks good enough to eat as a main meal. I will definitely be trying it out.
Lisa: Thanks Assyat. It is delicious – just out of the oven! Enjoy.
I’ve been searching for a good zucchini slice recipe all my life….this could be it.
Imagine the scenario. Back home from work, exhausted & hungry. You already bought the ingredients earlier that week & picked up a nice filet of fish on the way home. In less that 30 mins you’re sitting down at the table enjoying your meal! (Or in front of the tv – no judgement here.) Bon appetit.
It is in the oven – I added an extra 2 eggs as we are having it as a main and wanted to bolster it up a bit. Fingers crossed it works out! Very excited to be having yet another delicious GDM meal – thank you!
I am always wondering how else I could use ginger and what a great idea to include it in a bake. I tried this last night and had it with a steak as you suggested… YUM!!! I think this will definately be a new favourite in our household.
Bonjour Lisa, I cooked this one yesterday for a Sunday lunch with my sisters and we loved it! Bisous.
I absolutely love Zucchini and THIS recipe is a keeper, even after the GD stage :) Soooo tasty! Even my little 19 Month old was asking after her portion for more, more, more,… Had chickenbreast with it and a little homemade salsa…YUM!!!
