Mantovane Bread with Carrot Dough

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!
