“From the Australian Biggest Loser "Change your Life" Book. This is yummy hot, warm, cold, or in Sandwiches. Freezes OK too. There are vegetarian loaves on Zaar but this one is just a bit different and has become a favorite for us. Followed the recipe as is, except added corn kernels and left out the pine nuts. We also added 1/2 a capsicum that we had to use up. Have marked these three ingredients as optional.”
