Mantovane Bread with Carrot Dough Recipe
By Bb Kitchen
600g GF bread flour
150g Carrots, blended with 150g water
50g Veg Butter
9g Sea Salt
3g Dried Yeast
1 Blend the carrots with the water until you get a smooth puree with no hard bits.
2 In a big bowl, add the yeast, a pinch of sugar and a splash ion water and dissolve the yeast. Add the flour, the salt, the carrot puree and the butter, and mix well until it starts coming together. Move the dough to a surface and knead briefly to get a smooth dough. Put some oil in the bowl and place back the dough. Cover with cling film and let it rest for 1 hour in a warm place until it’s doubled in size.
3Take the dough and divide in pieces of about 200g each.
4 Now you have to roll out the dough. Roll out each piece, roll it up to make a narrow strip and then roll out the strip again to make a long one. Leave to rise covered with cling film and a cloth for about 30 minutes.
5Cut the rolls in two, widthwise. Make a small cut along the whole sandwich (not too deep) and bake.
6Bake for 5 min with a slightly open oven’s door, then close and bake for another 20-25 min, until they’re golden all over.
7Enjoy with a bit of extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of sea salt!

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
