Quick and easy vegetable bread

Ingredients for 4 people

  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 1 carrot
  • 1/2 head of cauliflower
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 leek
  • 3 stalks of asparagus
  • 2 cups of fresh spinach (100 g)
  • Salt, pepper, and nutmeg
  • Olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of skim milk (100 ml)
  • 2 slices of bread
  • 2 eggs

Instructions

  • Heat a pan with a bit of oil. Chop the onion rather finely and saute.
  • Chop the pepper and asparagus the same way and add them to the onion. Season with the salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
  • Add the carrots, also in small pieces, along with the leek in small strips. Let it cook another minute until the vegetables are tender.
  • Boil the cauliflower for 10 minutes, then add to the pan. Next, add the raw spinach (no need to chop).
  • Let it cook another minute, until the spinach has shrunk.
  • Separately, soak the bread with the milk. Once the bread starts to break apart, add it to the vegetables. Mix well and remove from heat. Set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to medium heat. Line a baking mold with parchment paper.
  • Now beat the eggs and season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the vegetables to the mold, then the beaten eggs on top. Lift the mold up a few inches and let it drop so that the mixture settles into the nooks and crannies.
  • Prepare a water bath: fill another pan with some water and then place the mold in it. Cook for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  • Finally, remove from the oven and then the mold. Let it cool a bit before serving.
