Courgette sandwich loaf

My recent effort in defiance of the 'vegetables belong with your main course only' claim: courgette (or zucchini to many) loaf - here's the link to the detailed recipe. Sliced and cooked courgettes plus some mashed potatoes - the bread has great texture, slices well so a good sandwich loaf, and it toasts like a dream.

It is a very simple sandwich loaf, the dough proves overnight, so fairly flavoursome. It actually is a twist on one of Dan Lepard's recipes for a deli bread (here's a link to the recipe) which has cooked onions in the mix. It's excellent but quite strong on onions, so I thought I'd temper the flavour with bland courgettes. very much successful - only I underestimated the liveliness of the dough and it went to town during the final prove - hence the muffin top.

Never heard of courgettes in bread but sounds delicious! Looks delicious too.

I'm more familiar with courgettes use in quick breads. This has to be tasty. The crumb looks very pillowy and soft.
