Whole-wheat beetroot bread


  • Add the beetroot into a pot and fill it with enough water to cover the bulb.
  • Boil over high heat for 30 minutes, until the beetroot is tender.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and let the beetroot cool in order to peel it.
  • Grate the beetroot on the large shredding holes of a box grater and put it in a dish towel.
  • Squeeze with your hands to remove its excess juices.
  • Peel the pumpkin and remove its seeds. 
  • Grate the pumpkin on the large shredding holes of a box grater and drain it by putting it in a dish towel and squeezing it with your hands.
  • In a mixer’s bowl add the whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, yeast, honey, sunflower oil, salt, grated pumpkin, grated beetroot, and water. 
  • Beat with the hook attachment at medium-low speed, for 10-12 minutes, until you get a smooth dough that pulls away from the sides of the bowl. If the mixture is too thick, add a little more water.
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl, cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and allow 1 hour and 30 minutes for it to double in size. 
  • Line the bottom and the sides of two 10x30 cm loaf tins with parchment paper.
  • Dust your work surface with flour and knead the dough. 
  • Divide the dough in half and shape two loaves, big enough to fit into the loaf tins.
  • Cover the loaf tins with a dish towel and leave them at room temperature until the loaves double in size.
  • Preheat the oven to 240οC (460ο F) set to fan.
  • Dust the surface of each dough with a little flour and bake them in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • Lower the temperature to 190οC (370ο F), without opening the oven, and bake them for another 25-30 minutes until they are golden.
  • Remove the loaf tins from the oven and let them cool on a rack.
  • Take the bread out of the loaf tins and cut it into slices. 
  • Serve.
