After inventing and refining different sweet versions, here is finally a savoury veggies loaf. Incredibly easy and quick to make, a delicious, healthy alternative to the classic one made of meat. Prepare it when you have some spare time and eat it whenever and wherever you like! Add few slices to your lunch box, make it as part of a light dinner, have a slice before or after training or just simply have it as a “grab & go” breakfast.
Leeks, spinach and zucchini, taste quite well when blended together although broccoli, asparagus and chicory can wonderfully replace them.
Learn nutritional facts of your ingredients, play with them, add some love and enjoy the result!
