Whole Wheat Beet Swirl Bread [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

High Carb Vegan Vegan


  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons instant dried yeast
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 tablespoons boiled and puréed beets
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar


  1. Take warm water in a bowl and dissolve sugar and add yeast. Keep aside for 15 minutes until frothy.
  2. Whisk together both the flours and salt. Add oil and mix well.
  3. Divide dry flour mix into two separate parts (1 1/2 cups each) and keep them in separate plates.
  4. Add 1/2 teaspoon sugar to yeast mix and stir until it dissolves.
  5. Add this water to the first plate and knead a soft dough. Keep adding water until the dough gets supple and elastic. It will take about 6 to 8 minutes. Keep it in an oiled bowl and turn the dough to around to coat it with oil on all sides. Cover and keep in a warm place to rise for 1 hour.
  6. To the second plate, add 4 tablespoons of beet purée. Now add water and repeat the process (as with the first dough)
  7. Grease one 9×4 1/2-inch loaf pan.
  8. Now we have two types of dough- the white and the pink. Remove white dough from the bowl to the working counter. Sprinkle some all purpose flour, punch, and knead for 3 to 4 minutes. Now roll out the dough into a rectangle (about 12x 5-inch) not bigger than the width of the pan you are using. Repeat the same with the pink dough.
  9. Place pink dough over the white dough. Dip your hands in warm water and spatter some water on the white dough (just to make it moist). Press gently.
  10. Roll the dough towards you tightly. Pinch seams to seal. Place the roll in the greased loaf tin with the seam side down. Cover and keep it to rise for 1 1/2 hours in a warm place.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven at 375°F for 30 to 35 minutes or until the top turns brown and the bottom of the pan sounds empty when tapped. If the loaf is browning too quickly, tent the loaf loosely with a foil.
  12. Remove from the loaf tin after 10 minutes. Cool in the rack. Slice next day.





I live in the Himalayas in India. I have grown up in the midst of nature and this simplicity and love reflects in my recipes on my blog Ambrosia Soulful Cooking. Love for Mother Earth, love and respect for all those whom we share our planet with makes me a partial vegan. Love nurtures, compassionate living brings joy. A simple vegetarian diet encourages the development of higher qualities of peace, love, and awareness. Veganism promotes a more humane and caring world.
