I LOVE this recipe as it literally turns a food that is often void of any nutrients into a nourishing meal. If its been one of those days my kids will have a few slices spread with ABC nut butter or cultured butter. It is almost better than a usual dinner as not only do they devour it but it nourishes with the perfect combination of protein, good fats & vegetables!
150g grated raw vegetables (zucchini/carrot/pumpkin/sweet potato) or fruit (apple/pear/berries) Once grated squeeze excess juice out with hands- bread will be too moist if not.
250g ground nuts/seeds (almond meal, flax/sunflower seeds/ pepitas/LSA)
flavour-ie sweet spices such as vanilla/cinnamon/nutmeg, savoury herbs such as rosemary, caraway & basil or superfood additions (gogi berries/cocoa nibs/shredded coconut/seeds/olives)
60g ghee/coconut/olive/ cold pressed seed oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
Pre heat oven to 170C
Mill almonds/seeds in a nut grinder/thermomix until finely ground (if you don't have one then buy already grinded almond/flax meal and skip this step!)
Add grated veg/fruit, egg yolks, and flavours (inc salt) until mixture is like a thick batter.
In a separate bowl whip egg whites in a clean bowl with an electric mixer (if you don't have, don't worry too much, bread just wont be as 'fluffy'-recommend adding tsp apple cider vinegar & natural baking powder instead)
Gently fold through egg whites and pour into greased baking loaf. Top with extra grated fruit/ herbs/ seeds for presentation
Bake in oven at 170C for 30-40mins until skewer inserted in centre comes out clean (if using moist vegies may need longer cooking)
