Let me introduce you to my sunday afternoon snack. We just came back around lunch time as we spent the weekend at my parents’ house, relaxing, watching football and eating. So when we came back today I wanted to make a little snack.
With what we had at home it turned to be an easy-to-make bread with a vegetable spread.
I am happy to introduce my second recipe for a quick no-yeast bread. I shared a recipe for a quick yoghurt bread with sesame and pumpkin seeds (find it here) in February. This walnut bread is also made with yoghurt but it is more of a rustic bread made with buckwheat flour. I like buckwheat flour but I always mix it with another kind of flour so that the bread does not taste too “earthy”.
The eggplant spread is a nice topping for the nutty bread as it is very creamy due to the avocado. It can also be a dip as an alternative to guacamole. You just have to roast the eggplants, the rest is easy.
Vegetable spreads have a really unsexy standing. Well at least in Germany. When you buy vegetable spreads, the packaging is very likely to be brown and not very fancy. There is no impulse buying there. But the thing is that these spreads are often super good and healthy. So what’s with the marketing of vegetable spread companies?
