Vegan Zucchini and Kale Slice Recipe

 serves: 12

drizzle olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 garlic clove, crushed
500g zucchini, grated
1 big handful roughly torn kale leaves
2 teaspoons curry powder
big pinch salt
big pinch black pepper
350g extra firm tofu
200ml Plant Based Milk such as Soy Milky Lite
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons dijon mustard

  1. Preheat your oven to a moderate temperature at approximately 180 degrees Celsius. 
  2. In a fry pan on medium to high heat, add the oil and onion and sauté until transparent.
  3. Wrap the grated zucchini in a cloth and squeeze hard to discard the excess liquid.
  4. Add in the garlic, kale and grated zucchini, season with salt and pepper and sauté until the zucchini has softened. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  5. In a food processor, add the curry powder, salt, pepper, tofu, soy milk, nutritional yeast, flour and mustard and blend until smooth.
  6. Spray a 25cm x 25cm baking tin.
  7. Combine the creamy mixture from the processor and the zucchini mixture and pour it into the tin.
  8. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour until lightly browned on top and a skewer comes out clean.
  9. Allow to cool and put in the fridge until needed. Serve cool for lunch or at a tea party!
  10. Enjoy your zucchiniliciousness! 


  1. Yum, this sounds delicious!!! Although I happen to be all out of zucchini :( Do you think it would work with something else, like carrot, potato or kumara?

    1. You could try carrot! It would be pretty similar... just make sure to squeeze out the liquid :)

  2. Oh my gosh this looks soooo yummy!

  3. YES! This is fantastic. My Mum used to make zucchini slice all the time when I was little. Now I can make a vegan version. Thanks. :)

    1. Our pleasure! My mum did too. I loved it! Hope you love this :)

  4. kale's pretty hard to find 'round here...do you think swiss chard would work out the same?

  5. Hi Madison, this looks amazeballs! just wondering if it would work without the nutritional yeast? :)

    1. Hello! Oh thank you. It would still work but the nutritional yeast really adds to the yumminess.

  6. Yummy! What a great idea, Just what i was looking for to use up all my home grown zucchinis :D

  7. I got a bit slack with measuring and put too much curry powder in, but it didn't matter, it was a big hit with all my family - grandparents to 2 year olds. Fabulous recipe :) Thanks for sharing!
