I wonder if I’m the only one that has “non artistic” days
In the last week all the photos I took were rubbish (and I’m being kind to them). I’m far from being a great food photographer but there are days no matter how many pictures I take all of them land in the recycle bin. I know practice makes perfect, but seems like I’m now starting to take photos.
My pictures are out of focus, poorly lit, the style is non-existent
The photos of this bread are far from showing a wonderful loaf. But I decided to embarrass myself and show them anyhow.
Why, you may wonder. Well, the bread is so good is really worth mentioning it. I may not have taken mouth-watering photos of it, but trust me, once you have a slice, you don’t care if it’s picture perfect or not.
The idea of this bread starting from a photo of spinach quinoa muffins I spotted on Pinterest.
But I didn’t want to make muffins. I had bread on my mind.
I remembered seeing a spinach bread in a bread-machine cookbook I have. Although I don’t own a bread machine, the book has some great bread ideas.
Combining the quinoa from the muffins with some wilted spinach (idea taken form the cookbook) seemed like a great combo. And it was!
The sweetness of the sautéed onion, the wilted baby spinach combined with quinoa and some toasted sunflower seeds made such a wonderful combo!
The crust is soft from the addition of olive oil, flavors are bursting in every bite.
It may not be picture-perfect, but it sure tasted better than I had expected.
If i had to change something, I’d probably double the amount of quinoa and spinach, just to kick a little more the level of nutrition.
Sending love your way,
