Serves: 24 

  • 1 cup (250ml) tomato juice
  • 1 cup (250ml) water
  • 1 (7g) sachet yeast
  • 5 tablespoons honey
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 bunch fresh parsley, chopped
  • 3 spring onions, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 800g bread flour

Preparation:45min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:1hour15min 

  1. In a saucepan, heat the tomato juice and water over low heat until warm to the touch. Pour into a large warmed bowl and add yeast and honey; stir to dissolve yeast. Allow to rest until yeast is creamy.
  2. Mix in oil, parsley, onion, garlic, carrot and salt. Add 1/4 of the flour and stir until smooth. Add more flour a little at a time until a firm dough is formed. Knead five minutes on a lightly floured surface. Place dough in an oiled bowl and turn to coat the surface completely. Allow to rise in a warm place until doubled in size.
  3. Punch down and divide into halves. Form two loaves and put into greased 23x12cm loaf tins. Allow to rise for another 45 minutes or until loaves have doubled in size.
  4. Bake at 220 degrees C for about 30 minutes until golden brown. Remove from tins to wire rack to cool.

Used different ingredients. This is a wonderful bread! I use dried parsley instead of fresh and process my carrot, onion and garlic in an electric food chopper to get it very fine. - 14 Jul 2008

Altered ingredient amounts. Wow!! I can't say enough good things about this recipe! It's so versatile. I halved the recipe. Then I let the dough rise the first time, punched it down and formed four flat circles. (Like pitta bread.) Then I baked the circles for 18 mins 200C. - 14 Jul 2008


Used different ingredients. I love this recipe. I was looking for recipes to help use up all the tomatoes that were ripening in the garden. Instead of using tomato juice, I threw enough roma tomatoes into my little food processor and chopped them up until there was enough for 225ml. It added little chunks of tomato that added more excitement to the bread. You must try this! Thanks for submitting this recipe. - 14 Jul 2008
