Vegetable Tray Bake with Sunflour

Recipe by: Cooking Without Gluten

Variety of vegetables, quickly thrown together with little quantity of runny batter, based on eggs and SunFlour, make flexible and easy meal that takes 10-15 minutes to prepare and 30-50 minutes to bake. The dish can be baked as a tray bake or in individual portions, that can be served straight from the oven. Baking provides 2 advantages to very popular vegetable fritters, which use thicker batter with increased quantity of a dry ingredient and take more time to be individually fried. This particular tray bake vegetable slice is grain free, and can be made in dairy free version as well, when butter is replaced with plant oil and dairy free cheese used.

    You'll need:

    • 4 large eggs
    • 2 heaped serving spoons Sunflour
    • 3 zucchini
    • 3 carrots
    • 1 or half leek
    • 1 small capsicum (1/2 large)
    • 1/2 cup shredded smoked speck or bacon
    • 7-8 cherry tomatoes
    • 1 Tbs sunflower seed oil
    • 1 Tbs butter
    • 1 heaped table spoon of chilli peppers and garlic paste
    • 1/2 cup grated cheese (I used Tasty cheese)
    • sea salt and black pepper for seasoning to taste
    • sesame seeds for decoration

    Quantity of vegetables and their ratios depend on the size of baking tray/dish.

    Smoked speck can be replaced by cooked chicken, turkey, tender, slowly cooked meat pieces. For vegetarian version use canned beans, cooked lentils or sautéed mushrooms. Any leftovers can be used to be added to vegetable mix.
