Hearty Cheese and Courgette Slice

This is a the kind of hale and hearty savoury slice which will warm you up and stick to your ribs in this wintery weather. And it's totally vegetarian.

2 cups of plain flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
100 grams of butter ( straight out of the fridge)
150 grams of grated Cheddar Cheese
3 tablespoons of finely chopped parsley
2 zucchini (grated)
1/2 cup of sunflower seeds
2/3 cup of milk
3 eggs
1 teaspoon of Hot Samoan Boys Chilli Sauce

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C
Put the flour, baking powder and salt into the bowl of a food processor.
Add the butter,
Whizz until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
Put it into a large bowl
In a separate bowl whisk the eggs , milk and chilli sauce  together
Pour this over the dry mixture .
Add the grated courgettes and chopped parsley to the bowl.
Stir until everything is  just combined.
Spread the mixture into a baking paper lined oven dish (20 cm by 30 cm) 
Bake for about 25 minutes until the slice is golden brown and cooked ( test by poking a toothpick in, it should come out clean)

Serve with sweet chilli sauce  and a small mesclun salad.
