I wanted to finish it with something unique, so here it comes : the most bright colored bread I’ve ever baked.

Really good looking and tasty at the same time,bread made with cooked then pureed beets.Not much to add ,so let’s get to my homemade bread recipe .

Happy baking!



1 medium size beet (cooked)

½ Cup water

½ Cup beet juice (saved from cooked beet)

1 Tbs vegetable oil

3 + Cups all purpose unbleached flour

1 Tbs salt

2 tsp instant dry yeast (if using active dry , activate in warm water )


Start by cooking the beets:peel, cut and cook until tender

Save ½ cup of the beet juice

Using a food processor puree the beets along with the juice and water

Mix a few minutes to incorporate (it should be approx 1¾ -2 cups mixture)

In a mixing bowl combine all the dry ingredients :flour,yeast and salt

Add the beet mixture and oil to the dries and mix until smooth dough forms

Place the dough into a greased bowl to rest and rise (50-60 minutes)

Transfer the dough into floured surface and knead for 3-5 minutes

Return to the greased bowl for second rise or until doubled in size

Preheat oven to 425° F /220° C degree

Shape the dough into desired shape (round ,oval ,loaf or baguette )

Lightly dust the top with flour

Before baking ,using a sharp knife make a few slices on the top

Bake 30-40 minutes

Allow the bread to cool down at least 30 minutes before slicing
