Beet and Spinach Bread

Once there was a girl
Nay a princess, with hair in many a curl
Whose love of bread was so great
All her mamma made would get ate

Belle’s love of pink and green is how it began
that veggie colored breads were her mama’s plan.
Spinach was blended. The beets were attacked by a masher.
The kitchen looked like the work of a slasher.

Yeast, flour and veggie juice became a frothy mix.
Mama and Belle then became kneading chicks.

After a rest, a rise and nap,
Rolls were made in snap.

Before their trip to the oven would be,
We marked them with a B for Belle and me.

What a fun thing to do with your daughter. And if you didn't get any stains after working with beets as food coloring, you are a better person than I am! Or just less messy.

This is a cute post. I love how your daughter gets involved. And these rolls are so fun.


About your last post, that is the kind of loss no one should have to endure :(! It's a loss I dread, especially around this time. My heart goes out to those who've lost a child, both in the womb and outside the womb.

Gorgeous colors! And you have one adorable helper :)

This was a wonderful post, and I love those photos of mama's little helper.

Mimi said...

What a beautiful poetic post. I also love that you made each vegetable dough into it's own roll instead of a woven bread. They look scrumptious!

Cathy (breadexperience) said...

What a cute story! And the breads are beautiful!

Foodycat said...

Pretty! Does the veg add flavour or just that wonderful colour?

maybelle's mom said...

Thanks all. The recipe is available through the link. I followed that one exactly, but then made rolls instead of a braided bread.

Foodcat, it does taste veggie like but not overtly. Just slightly.
