Loaded Broccoli Onion Loaf



Yum



Hi everyone... I think I left a very long gap since my last recipe. Was actually feeling very lazy to post but now am back to post another easy pesy healthy recipe. The tiresome work with the loaf making must be the kneading right? But am basically a very lazy person and i dont like to spend more time in the kitchen so came up with this simple recipe and  Made this for dinner and it was a hit at our house. Couldn't believe how an easy recipe can taste so tasty while being loaded with all health benefits of broccoli.

UPDATE:
I made this same recipe with adding some carrots in it and again it was a success... it was heavenly.
Find the updated pictures below.
