Normally when we think of bread, first thought comes to our minds toasted bread with butter, cream cheese, jam or any spread. Sometimes we think about sandwiches.

Today we are going to make stuffed bread with lots of veggies like onion, garlic, bell peppers, mushrooms, spinach; all are rich in protein, iron, vitamins, minerals. Spinach has lot of iron while mushrooms have lot of protein. For this recipe I used white button mushrooms, you can use any mushrooms of your choice. There is so much variety of mushrooms available like Portobello, Chaga, Turkey tail, Cordyceps, Maitake, Lion’s mane, Shiitake etc.
