Asparagus, Zucchini and Goats Cheese Loaf

1 bunch asparagus, trimmed
3 zucchini, coarsely grated
1 onion, finely chopped
1 cup self-raising flour
5 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup grated tasty cheddar cheese
1/3 cup frozen peas
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup chopped mint leaves
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
120g goat’s cheese, broken into pieces

  • Preheat oven to 200C or 180C fan. Grease a 21.5cm x 8cm (base measurement) loaf tin. Line the base and 2 long sides with baking paper, allowing the sides to overhang.
  • Cook the asparagus in a saucepan of boiling salted water for 1 min or until bright green. Refresh in iced water, then drain and pat dry with paper towel. Cut a 6cm length from the top of each spear and reserve. Cut the remaining asparagus into 2cm slices.
  • Combine zucchini, onion, flour, eggs, cheddar, peas, oil, herbs, sliced asparagus and half the goat’s cheese in a large bowl and season to taste. Spoon into the prepared tin. Decorate with the remaining goat’s cheese and reserved asparagus spears. Bake for 1 hr or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool in the tin.
