Veggie Bread

This is going to be a quick post about this interesting bread recipe. Interesting because it lets you get creative – you can add your own choice of vegetables, nuts and other flavors to it.

I have been developing this recipe for some time now and was quiet happy with the results. It has everything to feel happy & healthy about  – veggies, eggs, olive oil, seeds and tahini.

I used a combination of all purpose flour with semolina – however after I made it, I felt that it could still be made even healthier by using whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour and adding  ground flax seeds and some nuts or sunflower seeds.

If you don’t like the flavor of tahini, you can substitute it with some plain yogurt.

It tastes a lot like a moist cake only its not sweet. It tastes great with some butter flavored with herbs and garlic on it. So, go ahead and try it out and it would be great if you could share with me what combination you decided to try out. Enjoy!!!

Serving 1 loaf

Cooking time 20 minutes + baking time

Things you will need:

3 eggs

1 cup all purpose flour

½ cup fine semolina

2 tsp baking powder

1 cup tahini

2 tbsp olive oil

1 cup grated zucchini

½ cup grated carrots

some sun dried tomatoes

some sesame seeds to sprinkle

Preheat the oven at 350F. Prepare a loaf pan for baking.

In a bowl mix together flour, semolina, salt and baking powder. In a large bowl whisk the eggs slightly, add olive oil and tahini and mix till it becomes a smooth paste. Add all the veggies and mix. Fold in the flour mixture till everything is mixed well and it comes together as a batter. If you feel that the batter is a bit too thick, add some more tahini or a few tbsp of plain yogurt. Transfer into the baking pan and bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until the bread is cook through. Let cool completely on a rack before slicing, serve with flavored butter.
