This one is a little tricky, but the flavor is so good I would not be able to forgive myself if I awarded less than 5 stars. So many veggies! Such beautiful color! are balanced by such sticky dough! and so hard to figure out when it's baked through. On the other hand, this is a batter bread with only one rise, so it takes very little time to make compared with other breads. I chopped the veggies very fine by hand, but I bet you could do it in a food processor, too. I think a pan with at least 7 cups volume is needed for this. It smells so good while baking, and tastes wonderful, too. I did add 1/4 teaspoon salt to the batter and didn't use parsley. I was using a new pan, and releasing the bread was a little difficult. It may be a good idea to grease the pan very well or line it. I am very glad I finally got to try this. Thank you very much for posting this recipe.
