Cauli-bacon Zucchini Slice

Refined sugar free – Gluten free – Nut free – Grain free – Vegetarian option

SERVES: 4-6

A delicious slice eaten warm or cold and served with a garden salad, it’s as easy as that. And to think, to make this vegetarian, just omit bacon… and you can easily switch out the cauliflower with broccoli…so many options. We suggest you try the standard recipe first and then play around the next time round.
