Tomato bread against the tomato glut

August 19th, 2018 | bread & pastries

The other day we were invited for a barbecue with dear friends. They served a super-tasty tomato bread. As a matter of course, I immediately asked for the recipe, of course! The bread was made in a Thermomix food processor. I do not own such a processor. Of course, the recipe also works without the device, and quite sensually with your hands in the dough.

Tomato bread against the tomato glut

Since I had received an incredible number of tomatoes from the greenhouse from other friends, I decided to use twice the amount of dough to process the beautiful, red, ripe fruit. The result was a really BIG bread, super-fluffy, super-juicy, super-delicious.

I had replaced about one third of the flour with common wheat flour Type 00, which made it particularly supple and fine-pored.

This bread tastes best only with butter and some salt! You can serve it as well with my eggplant dip or with wild garlic aioli.
