Breakfast: Vegetable Bread
Most of the people these days are indulging themselves with sweet fillings breads and buns.
For those weight watchers and nutrient conscious consumers, they would opt for fiber or wholemeal bread for a healthier choice.
What about Vegetable Bread?
Has anyone tried a bread filled with vegetables?
I happened to stumbled upon this Vegetable Bread recipe in my old cookbook.
This makes a delicious and nutrient breakfast that could last you till lunch time.
If you are looking for loads of nutrients in a bread, try this Vegetable Bread with added grated of carrots, chopped celery and red bell peppers.
Nothing to worry about uncooked veggies.
With 40minutes of baking, these vegetables turn soft and I could hardly taste them as they are well embedded into the bread.
Alternatively, you could add in vegetables of your choice. The bread dough isn’t the same as the normal bread dough.
It is almost alike baking a cake , except it does not require any baking powder or self raising flour.
No butter nor olive oil.
It is one of a kind bread that is unique and stand out from others.
