Beetroot Bread with Nuts

Method

For the beetroot puree

  • You can make the beetroot puree in 2 different ways. An easy way and a more difficult way.
  • The easy way would be to use ready boiled beetroots and simply puree them in a blender. This way will give you a "juicier" mixture so you add the 50 ml of water.
  • The more difficult way would be to wrap raw beetroots with aluminum foil and roast them in the oven for 1 hour.
  • Then puree them in a blender. This way will give you a less "juicier" mixture so you will need to add the 190 ml of water.

For the bread

  • Combine the 450 g of flour with the salt in a bowl.
  • Set the remaining flour aside and add it at the end, if needed.
  • In a mixer, add the flour-salt mixture and the rest of the ingredients, apart from the nuts. Beat for at least 5 minutes on medium speed, using the hook attachment until you create a smooth and elastic dough.
  • Add the nuts and continue to beat for another 2 minutes, until the nuts are nicely distributed in the dough.
  • If the dough is too wet and sticks to the sides of the bowl, add as much of the remaining flour, a spoonful at a time, until it comes together nicely and starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl.
  • Transfer dough to a bowl lightly brushed with olive oil. Cover with a piece of plastic wrap brushed with olive oil. Set aside in a warm place for at least 1 hour, so the dough can rise.
  • When ready, turn the dough out on to a working surface that is generously dusted with flour and allow it to “deflate”.
  • Preheat oven to 190* C (370* F) Fan.
  • Shape into a loaf with your hands and place in a baking pan.
  • Cover with a towel and allow it to rise again for at least 45 minutes.
  • Score the top of the loaf about 1 minute before putting it in the oven.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until the bottom side of the loaf makes a hollow sound when you tap it.
  • When ready, remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool and cut into slices.

Tip

You don’t need a mixer if you don’t mind kneading the dough by hand for quite a while!
