RAINBOW VEGGIE PICNIC LOAF WITH LEMON PEPPER MAYO DRIZZLE
Is it a bread? Is it a salad? It’s both in one! Our rainbow veggie stuffed sourdough picnic loaf is the ultimate eat-it-anywhere al fresco treat. So easy to make and packed with goodness, all it needs is a generous drizzle of our creamy and tangy lemon pepper drizzle. High summer is here, it’s time to pack a basket!
- WHAT YOU WILL NEED -
- FOR THE DRIZZLE: 1 cup low fat yoghurt
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 Tbsp capers, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- Handful flatleaf parsley leaves, finely chopped
- Grinding of LEMON PEPPER
- FOR THE LOAF: 1 lrg sourdough loaf
- 4 lrg carrots, grated
- Packet of baby spinach leaves
- 1 sm red cabbage, thinly sliced
- 2-3 avocados, sliced and drizzled with lemon juice
- 1 tin chickpeas, drained & roughly mashed with a fork then drizzled with olive oil and salt & pepper to taste
- METHOD -
Mix all the drizzle ingredients and set aside to infuse.
Slice the top off the sourdough and use your hand to hollow it out. (Tip: Don’t throw the filling away, use it to make your own breadcrumbs! Simply blitz the filling in your food processor, place the crumbs on a baking tray in a 100 ºC oven until crisp and golden and then store it in an airtight container!)
Layer the vegetables in the hollowed-out loaf. Place the "cap" back on, wrap in cling film and weigh down with a breadboard for an hour to firm up. Slice into large wedges and serve with the drizzle on the side.
