We have been overtaken by some sort of bread making fever. And inspired by the recycling stories of Sandor Katz (who wrote my bible, if I felt like I needed a bible, Wild Fermentation), Cloe made this incredible sourdough bread. The main reason that the dough is pink is due to a whole cooked beetroot inside, when the bread cooked it became a more banal looking bread colour, which was a bit disappointing.
Ingredients in the bread included leftover rice pudding (with banana and coconut), sprouted hommous dip, cooked barley, beetroot and wheat flour. Our tiny friends of the micro kind (sourdough culture/yeast) digested all that we feed it and though it deffinately had a complex flavour the bread tasted rather normal really.
