After trying beetroot bread from a supermarket bakery, I thought I would make my own. The beetroot give the bread a lovely colour, gorgeous fresh smell, and sweet taste.

180g wholemeal bread flour
300g white bread flour

20g teff grain
60g pumpkin seeds
7g fast action yeast
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
2 tbsp chilli oil
200ml water

Peel and dice the beetroot.
Mix with flours, salt, teff, yeast, pumpkin seeds, and 1 tbsp chilli oil.

Gradually add the water a little at a time until it forms a pliable dough (you might need less than 200ml, depending on how much beetroot juice is absorbed into the dough).
