Spinach & Tomato Sweet Bread

Now here, Kristy is making something crazy again! VEGETABLES loaf ! haha... I've seen blogger making spinach loaf and bread too but seldom I see tomato bread. This is definitely something I will never resist to try, won't I ! Today, I am honoured to present you this colourful soft bread loaf. I bet the kids or whoever hated the green thing is going to love this.

Ingredients for Spinach Dough :
300gm bread flour
1/2 tspn salt
3 tbsp spinach puree
100ml milk (mix with one beatened egg to make it 100ml)
2 tbsp sugar
1-1/2 tspn yeast
2 tbsp corn oil/butter

Ingredients for Tomato Dough :
300gm bread flour
1/2 tspn salt
3 tbsp tomato paste
100ml milk (mix with one beatened egg to make it 100ml)
2 tbsp sugar
1-1/2 tpsn yeast
2 tbsp corn oil/butter

Method :
(1) combine milk, egg, yeast, sugar and oil, leave aside for 5 mins.
(2) in another big mixing bowl, combine flour and salt, mix well.
(3) stir milk mixture into flour to form a soft dough.
(4) leave to rest for an hour or until double the size.
(5) go on with the other recipe with the same method separately.
(6) then punch dough to release air and place dough over a sloured working table.
(7) divide both dough into 6 portion, roll each into oblong shape.
(8) twist together a green dough and a orange dough, ended up with 6 pairs of them.
(9) place them to a 9" tray with butter coating. (mine is 8" tray)
(10) let it rest for another 40 mins or untill double in size.
(11) brush with egg glaze and bake at preheated oven 190'c for about 15-20 mins or untill brown.
(12) leave to cool for 10 mins before remove from tray.
The bread is so fluffy soft and looks jolly good. I think the tomato paste did such incredible job here. The colour is perfect and so does the spinach. doesnt' smell like a VEGETABLE at all. lol! haha....

I have some leftover dough after finishing the 8" tray pan. Again I divide each portion into 3 dough balls. Arrange them to a 3x6.5" tray. Let them rest untill double in size. Spread on some pesto and bake at preheated oven 190'C for about 15-20 mins or untill brown.

Pesto topping ! This is totally crazy. I can finish the whole loaf all by myself.

Hi Kristy,
This looks really good and I love the color combination! :-)
Thanks for your kind words. Thankfully, our families are not too close to the epicenter or the power plants and escaped serious damage. We want them to move as far away as possible though..

Heavenly Housewife said...

This is so beautiful. Love the pesto on the top. I know what you mean about eating so much of it. There is nothing in the world like hot fresh bread.

Your bread is so "pretty" with the blend of green and red. The best thing is the colours that you used are all natural. You are so creative and I believe that I have a lot to learn from you.

This is absolutely beautiful! And YES, what a wonderful way to get the little ones to eat vegetables! ;) I made Sun-dried tomato bread before but never think of putting the tomato past in the dough! What a wonderful idea and thanks for sharing!

Dimah said...

This looks super delicious!

My Carolina Kitchen said...

Kristy, I agree with the others. This would be great for breakfast.

Trix said...

You never cease to amaze me with your spectacular breads. When will you open your bakery??

Katerina said...

The bread is beautiful and with great colors. Such a great idea!

Alice Law said...

Wow, it must be drop dead delicious that you was able to finish the whole loaf on your own!

The other day I tried the English muffin, strange enough it won't double in size after a day I stored in the fridge! Guess it's the amount of yeast I put?! I put 1 teaspoon of dry yeast instead of 1 tablespoon since 1tbs sounds a lot to me.

My Little Space said...

Dimah : Thank you!

Sam : Delicious breakfast ever!

Trix : Errr.... still under consideration! haha...

Katerina : Thank you! It just something fun.

Alice : Don't be afraid of the yeast. Once the yeast dissolved into water, it's all fine. Any bread with 1 tbsp of yeast will gives you the best texture. 1 tspn of yeast will still rise but take longer time, about 3-4 hours under room temperature about 32-34 degree. Well, wish you luck!
Regarding the bread, I am loving the tomato flavour. Simply delicious.

Thank you everyone for stopping by and spending your time here.

Hope you're enjoying the day.

Blessings, Kristy

Hayley said...

The color is so 'calming'!!
I bet it taste very good too~

CheapAppetite said...

I've never seen both tomato bread and spinach bread. It sounds very healthy! There is carrot bread here at a grocery store and it taste yummy. Doesn't smell like carrots either. I like the pesto on top! look so yummy :)

denise @ bread expectations said...

Very nice Kristy! The colours are so pretty and the texture is amazingly light and cloudlike! I like!!

Alice Law said...

Thanks Kristy with best regards!

Ok, going to give the English muffin another try this weekend, as for the previous dough, the 2nd batch ended up as pizza dough(1st batch alright)! LOL!

Indie.Tea said...

I've seen a vegetable loaf of sorts once - the broccoli bread recipe in the Rose Bakery book. However, your vegetable looks much more appealing - I bet its delicious.

My Little Space said...

Hayley : Yes, they're delicious!

Tana : I've thought of carrot & broccoli bread before but I think the colour should turned out lighter from carrot puree.

Denise : Thank you and just hop over again to leave down the comments successfully!

Alice : All the best!

Indie : Thank you very much for your lovely words. I am really appreciate it. And glad you like it too.

Thanks alot ladies for spending your valueable time here today. It's such a great pleasure for having you around. Hope you're all having a fabulous day.

Janetan said...

hi kristy,
oh my, your every bread recipe makes me want to restart my bread making mission again..
ok, there is this thing i don't quite get u..
what do you mean by:
"100ml milk (mix with one beatened egg to make it 100ml) "
is the milk actually not 100ml?? or less so that the egg is added to make it become 100ml??
beside, about the english muffin, my area doesn't sell maize or cornmeal. instead the bakery shop recommended me sugi flour..

My Little Space said...


Yes, you're right about the milk. 100ml is after added in an egg.
So, it's one egg plus milk to make it 100ml.

I have yet tried sugi flour but you can give it ago, as long as the flour is not fine powder form. Basically, maize flour is quite rough, something like fine sand. It helps to prevent your bun to stick between the pan.

All the best, dear.


Janetan said...

hi kristy,
after i tried this bread out then i'll let u know the result..the sugi flur is like the maize flour texture.may be it be use as well..
