Spinach Bread

Should make around 2 loaves.


1kg Bread Flour

400g wilted spinach leaves, steamed, drained well and chopped up finely

4 tsp yeast

2 tsp salt

650ml lukewarm water

1/2 cup olive oil


1) In a jug place warm water, yeast, sugar, and oil. Mix and set aside until begins to foam.

2) In a separate bowl, place flour and salt. (Make sure the salt is mixed well and hidden as the salt may cause a chemical reaction with the yeast, stopping the yeast from activating.)

4) Add steamed, well drained and finely chopped spinach to the bowl and combine well.
