Recently i have been trying vegetable bread using different vegetables.

Dried Yeast-11/2 tsp
Raw Beetroot puree-1 tbsp
Cooked and pureed butternut squash-1 tbsp

Divide the first 3 ingredients into half in two separate bowls.In one bowl add 1/2 tsp of salt and beetroot puree, in the another bowl mix 1/2 tsp of salt and squash puree. Add enough water and knead it into two separate dough. Cover the bowl with clingfilm and leave it in a warm place to rise.
When the dough has risen knock the air back and knead it briefly. Preheat the oven to 200 degree celsius.Now roll out the beet dough into long log shape.Then roll the squash dough into a rectangle. Place the beet dough into the squash dough,seal the edges.Join the ends to form a ring shape.Bake it in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes.Serve warm with hummus or gravies. This bread can also be used for mini sandwich.
