With complimenting flavours of tarragon, black pepper and mushrooms, this is an inventive little dish which is quick and easy to prepare.


  • 1 800 g loaf or 8 rolls
  • 50 g/2oz vegan margarine
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 450 g/1lb mushrooms, sliced
  • 125 ml/4 fl oz soya cream
  • black pepper
  • pinch of tarragon


Preheat the oven to 180°C/350˚F/gas mark 4.

Remove the top of the bread.

Scoop out the middle of the bread to form a bath. You can keep this bread to use for breadcrumbs or croutons.

Mix the garlic with half of the margarine and coat the insides of the bath.

Heat the bread bath in the middle of the oven for 15 minutes.

Fry the mushrooms with the pepper and tarragon in the second half of the margarine until cooked.

Stir the cream into the mushrooms.

Put the mushroom mixture in the bath and serve.
