What Do You Make When........

What do you make when you need to take a plate of food for a shared lunch????
 Tomorrow I need to take shared lunch when I go to a class with a visiting Patchwork and quilting Tutor. It starts early so I  have had to make something today. At P and Q we often have shared lunches but usually there is time to make it the same day.

 Today I went back to an old favourite, Vegetable Slice.( I have lots of variations of this )
 ( the grated carrot cheese and parsley )

 There are no courgettes at the moment so I have just used carrots. ( beetroot might work too )( Any vege that can grate. )

 Here's the basic recipe. Vegetable Slice :

500gms of grated carrot ( weigh before you grate )
1 small onion finely diced
1 cup grated tasty cheese
 1 cup of SR flour
 4 eggs beaten
 1/4 cup chopped parsley
 1 tsp garlic flakes

  In a small amount of oil fry off the finely chopped onion till clear and cooked.
In a large bowl mix well together the grated carrot ,cheese & parsley.
 Mix in the flour and onion, garlic and seasoning to your taste to coat all  these.
 Then pour in the beaten eggs and mix through..( it should be moist )
 Spoon into a well greased flat ovenproof dish ( approx 23cms Square ) and pat down.

 Today I then spread over the top a little of our homemade pesto and added a further measure of grated Parmesan cheese.
Place in a pre heated 180degree C oven for 30 minutes, till cheese bubbly and top slightly browned.
 Cool.  Slice into squares. Can be eaten hot, warm or cold. Can be reheated. It keeps in the fridge.
