I found the recipe for this bread in the book Yotama Ottolenghi "Straight". When I started reading the long list of ingredients, I got a little scared, but after analyzing it, I found almost everything at home. I only swapped wholemeal flour for plain flour, goat cheese for feta, and cream for yoghurt. You have to manage somehow.

I had a bigger problem when the bread was already baked. What's that flavor? We tried piece by piece and no one could define how to categorize this baking. For me, the bread worked great as an addition to a fresh vegetable salad. It was also tasty with creamy white cheese, such a sandwich for breakfast. Still, I wonder what else the beetroot bread will go well with?
