  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Start by preheating your oven to 200°C (400°F). Lightly grease a baking dish with olive oil.
  2. Prepare the Broccoli:
    • Chop the broccoli into small florets and steam until tender. Let it cool, then chop finely or pulse in a food processor.
  3. Mix the Ingredients:
    • In a large bowl, combine the finely chopped broccoli, baking powder, 1/2 tablespoon of salt, eggs, oat flakes, sesame seeds, chopped green onions, minced garlic, 1/3 teaspoon of pepper, and shredded mozzarella cheese. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly distributed.
  4. Shape and Bake:
    • Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish, shaping it into a loaf. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-30 minutes, or until the top is golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  5. Prepare the Veggie Topping:
    • While the loaf is baking, heat a pan over medium heat. Add a drizzle of olive oil, the chopped onion, and grated zucchini. Season with the remaining salt and pepper. Cover and let the vegetables cook for a few minutes until they are soft and fragrant.
  6. Serve:
    • Once the broccoli loaf is done, let it cool slightly before slicing. Serve topped with the sautéed onion and zucchini mixture.
