Use your loaf and bake some veggies into homemade bread. It's surprisingly tasty and an easy way to eat more veg too

 

From knobbly celeriac to the humble courguette, veg add moisture, colour and a certain je ne sais quoi to a home-baked loaf. 

 

1. Pumpkin and coconut oil bread

You can mix all the ingredients for this spiced pumpkin bread in one bowl – leaving plenty of time for loafing around. In fact the hardest part is waiting for it to cool down before you eat it... move too soon and you'll have crumbs everywhere.
