A wonderfully easy soda bread recipe made using root vegetables. This celeriac and parsnip bread has a delicious flavour that's perfect for tempting reluctant vegetable eaters to give veg a try. It's very adaptable and can be made with just parsnips or other root vegetables. No yeast is needed for this easy vegetable bread recipe.
Despite this tasting quite strongly of root vegetable (I thought) both of the kids loved this vegetable bread. Maybe some of my hard work is paying off and they're getting used to different tastes, or maybe bread is always going to be a winner.
We're still persisting with limiting snacks and I served this with soup, which they're not very keen on, so I think that helped the bread get eaten up.
It's also really easy and doesn't need any kneading or rising time so doesn't need too much forward planning and is a good way of using up odd bits of root veg that are hanging around in the fridge.
