How to Make a Delicious Picnic Loaf!

by Helena Bigelow


  • 1 Round loaf of any sort of bread. I used sourdough
  • 1 Zucchini
  • 3 Mushrooms
  • 1 Bell pepper
  • Cheese
  • 5 Tablespoons Olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • ½ Teaspoons Minced garlic
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Preheat your oven to 400 degrees

    Step 2

    Slice up all your veggies and drizzle 4 tablespoons of olive oil all over and salt & pepper to taste on a baking sheet and bake them for 10 minutes. After the first 5 minutes do flip over the veggies.

    Step 3

    Combine 1 tablespoon of olive oil with the garlic in a medium bowl

    Step 4

    Add a splash of balsamic vinegar or more to your preference

    Step 5

    And a couple of basil leaves too!

    Step 6

    Your veggies should be done now and looking like this

    Step 7

    Combine the veggies with the garlic mixture and let it marinate for about 2 hours

    Step 8

    Once 2 hours has passed, drain the veggies

    Step 9

    Grab your loaf and cut off the top of it. Leaving 2/3 of the loaf for the base

    Step 10

    Just like this! And do hallow out the bottom half. We will not be using that part of the bread so eat up if you want!

    Step 11

    Step 12

    Slice up your cheese and get ready to stuff! I am using a vegan mozzarella but you can use anything you want

    Step 13

    My first layer is just the cheese

    Step 14

    Then one layer of zucchini

    Step 15

    All the bell peppers

    Step 16

    Another layer of cheese

    Step 17

    And the rest of the zucchinis and all the mushrooms. Then put the lid back on

    Step 18

    And that's it! Now wrap up the loaf tightly with cling wrap

    Step 19

    And place in the fridge overnight with a weight on top of it

    Step 20

    When you're ready to consume just heat up the oven to 180 degrees and heat it up for 30 minutes

    Step 21

    Step 22

    Enjoy! ☺
