Almost Core Two Tone Vegetable Slice (LO)

Suitable for lacto ovo vegetarians

Serves: 6

Difficulty: Easy


Orange layer:

  • 200 g Pumpkin, diced to 1cm
  • 200 g Sweet Potato (1/2 large or 2 small), diced to 1cm
  • 400 g Carrot (3-4 medium or 2 large), diced to 1cm

Green layer:

  • 2 cups frozen beans
  • 1 cup broccoli, diced to 1cm - include stems
  • 2 cup zucchini diced to 1cm
    You could also include some diced spinach, but I didn't have any


  • 4 eggs
  • 200 g fat free natural yoghurt (I used Jalna)
  • * 1/3 cup self raising flour (2 pts)
  • 250g extra light ricotta (I used Perfect Italiano)
  • 1 tsp mixed herbs


Steam orange vegetables until cooked but firm, rinse with cold water and allow to cool
Steam green vegetables (no need to do the beans) and allow to cool
Put the orange vegies in a large baking dish (like a lasagna dish)
Mix the filling and add about half the mix to the pan, and gently fold theough the orange vegies to get good covering.
Add the green vegies to the remainder of the filling mix, stir and por on top of ornage vegie layer. Gently push down the green vegies so they are mostly covered.
Bake at 180*C for 50 to 60 minutes or until egg mixture is set and starts to brown slightly

On Core? You need to count the flour - 2 pts for whole recipe = 0.5 pts each

Not on Core? The total Points for this recipe is 16 pts, with 6 servings = 2.5pts each
