Yoghurt vegetable slice

I’m fussy when it comes to vegetables. I don’t eat enough of them, I don’t eat them by choice and growing up I would refuse to eat them.

Ingredients 1 zucchini - grated 2 small potatoes - grated 1 carrot - grated 1 onion – cut finely 100g corn 150g Ricotta 1.5 teaspoon of mixed herbs 1 garlic clove – cut finely ½ cup S/R flour 3 eggs 1/3 cup yoghurt Salt and pepper Method: Pre-heat oven at 200 degree fan-forced Grease a tray approximately 20cm x 15cm Grate zucchini, small potatoes, carrot and onion in a food processor Add corn, ricotta, herbs and garlic to the grated vegetables Sift in flour and mix well Mix eggs in a separate bowl and add to the veget
