Bread Baking Day #14 Coloured Breads

BBD #14 is hosted by Boaz from Grain Power and he chose a different point of view ! I think it was fun to decide what colour my bread was going to be; in the beginning I was going to go PINK in honour of Anita but then, as tomorrow is Andrea's birthday and he loved a similar bread (that came from Sigrid of Cavoletto di Bruxelles), I went dark green !
Now... I don't know if the kind of cabbage I used is known abroad, we call it cavolo nero( I just found out it is called Tuscan Kale) and of course, it is typical of Tuscany ( it's used in the famous Ribollita soup)

I've uset it along with walnuts and roasted garlic paste (whole garlic roasted in the oven and squeezed) I must say that the colour isn't fantastic but the flavor is me !

Pane con cavolo nero, crema di aglio al forno e noci

200 gr Tuscan Kale shredded and stir fried
2 tsp salt
250 gr water
250 gr durum wheat flour (fine semolina)
250 gr bread flour (I used type 0 and high gluten )
1 envelope of dry yeast
1 tsp sugar
2 tbsp olive oil
2 roasted garlic's heads
150 gr walnuts

I must confess I made it in the bread machine and this is the order I put the ingredients in.
Buon Appetito !

How fun, by color! I need to get back in to BBD, I really loved participating, but got out of the habit - how can one lose the habit of good bread?

I have enjoyed searching through your blog so far. Coloured breads are a new concept (at least to me) but would make a wonderful addition:D
