Green Irish Soda Bread Recipe from Lands & Flavors


• 1½ cups all purpose flour

• 1½ cups whole wheat flour (or whole wheat pastry flour)

• 1 teaspoon baking soda

• ¾ teaspoon baking powder

• 1 teaspoon sea salt

• 1 cup nondairy milk

• 4 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

• 125g fresh spinach (about two cups, packed)

• rolled oats, sunflower seeds, or caraway seeds for sprinkling on top


1. Preheat oven to 425°F. In a large bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

2. In a blender, combine nondairy milk, vinegar, and spinach leaves and blend until completely smooth. Pour all but about 1 Tablespoon of the spinach and milk mix into the flour. Using a spatula or spoon stir into the flour just until combined.

3. Divide the dough into three to make small, 6-inch loaves. Toss some extra flour onto your balls of dough and transfer them to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Flatten them just slightly so that they bakes evenly and slash an "X" into the tops with a knife. Don't go too deep, just a surface slash. If you are sprinkling anything on top, use that remaining Tablespoon of spinach/milk mixture to brush on the loaves before sprinkling the toppings.

4. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the bottoms are slightly browned and the tops feel crusty.

5. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Be sure to throw a clean dish towel over them and let them cool down under it. This will ensure that the loaves stay tender. Enjoy them with vegan butter, preserves, or olive oil.
