Turkish Bake Directions
Preheat the oven to 180C fan forced
Grease and line a baking loaf tin with baking paper. In a large bowl mix the chives, zucchini, baking powder, flour, crumbled feta, olive oil, coriander powder, dill herb, and garlic powder and mix thoroughly. Whisk eggs (or egg substitute) and combine evenly with the mixture.
Place in the loaf tin and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven to check if there is still some moisture in the middle of the loaf by pressing down on the loaf.
Return to oven for a further 23-27 minutes or until the mixture is set.
Let the loaf stand in the pan for 10 minutes before serving.
Serve with lemon wedges, extra dill and mint, Turkish bread and yogurt if desired.
