Gluten Free Spinach, Feta and Squash Loaf Recipe

by Becky | Posted in Gluten Free Recipes

This loaf is wonderfully colourful, filling and tasty. The feta cheese gives a slightly salty flavour while the squash and spinach keep the loaf moist.

Eat it with cold meats, salad or soup for a warming meal on a cold day. Its best after the first day to heat it before eating and finish within three days.

Different variations can be tried I like olives and sun-dried tomatoes.
