  1. Step 1

    Heat a chargrill on medium-high. Brush eggplant, zucchini and pumpkin with the oil. Season. Cook, in batches, for 1-2 mins each side or until just tender. Transfer to a bowl. Set aside to cool.
  2. Step 2

    Use a large serrated knife to cut 3cm off the top of the loaf and reserve. Scoop out the centre of the bread, leaving a 2cm-thick shell.
  3. Step 3

    Spread three-quarters of the dip evenly around the inside of the loaf. Arrange the pumpkin over the base. Top with eggplant, cheese, capsicum, zucchini, prosciutto and spinach.
  4. Step 4

    Spread remaining dip over the cut side of the loaf top. Place over spinach. Wrap loaf in foil. Place on a large baking tray. Top with another tray and place cans on top. Place in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight to develop the flavours.
  5. Step 5

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Remove cans and the top baking tray from the loaf. Bake for 30 mins or until just heated through.
  6. Step 6

    Cut the loaf into slices. Serve warm or at room temperature.
