Zucchini, Carrot and Feta Loaf

Recipe provided Sage Lange – Trainer

2 zucchini, grated
1 carrot, peeled and grated
250 grams plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon table salt
1 teaspoon cracked pepper
50ml extra virgin olive oil
50ml milk
2 large eggs, size 7
⅓ cup plain unsweetened yoghurt
100 grams feta, crumbled
¼ cup sunflower seeds
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
To serve (optional)
soft-boiled eggs
spring onion, sliced
sliced avocado


Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Squeeze the grated zucchini between your hands to release any liquid. Place in a large bowl with the carrot, flour, baking powder, thyme, spices, salt and pepper. Mix to combine. Make a well in the centre and add the oil, milk, eggs and yoghurt. Stir until well incorporated. Gently fold through feta cheese along with half the sunflower and sesame seeds.

Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf tin and top with the remaining sunflower and sesame seeds. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
