Introduction: Kale and Feta Spelt Bread
This is a healthy loaf of bread. It goes really well with scrambled eggs topped with smoked salmon. I used walnut oil to make the bread, but have used olive oil too. If too much flour is used, the bread will become dense. I suggest using the gram weights to measure the ingredients. This will ensure that you get a light and fluffy loaf of bread. It's perfect for Sunday brunch. This recipe can also be found at gardengirlrecipes.com.
