one of the TASTE mags top recipes – I think it needs more taste to be honest, so add your own herbs, seasoning, etc, or it tastes a bit one dimensional!

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 large brown onion, finely chopped
  • 300g sweet potato, peeled, coarsely grated
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 6 eggs ( can opt to just use whites of two if you wish)
  • 40g plain flour (or a wee bit more if the mix is too mushy, remember the ricotta strengthens)
  • 125g reduced fat ricotta
  • 250g zucchini, grated, moisture removed
  • 2 tbs each of flat leaf parsley and chives


  1. Preheat oven to 180c Grease and line a 26x16cm slice pan.
  2. Heat the oil in a large non stick fry pan over high heat, and cook the onion, stirring for 3 minutes or until soft. Stir in the garlic for 1 minute or until aromatic.
  3. Whisk the eggs, and flour in a large bowl until mixture is smooth. Whisk in ricotta until just combined. Stir in the sweet potato mixture, zucchini, herbs, season.
  4. Pour the mixture into the pan. Bake for 30 minutes until golden and cooked through. Set aside to cool slightly
  5. Serve the slice with tomatoes, scattered with extra parsley and rocket
