Roasted Pepper, Garlic Scapes & Cheddar Bread
It was the SRC time of the month yesterday, and I’m sorry I got the dates mixed up. Just shows that old age has crept in and I had the 6th in my mind and the post scheduled for today. That said, I made this beautiful bread from Barbs delicious blog a few weeks ago! My take on her recipe on Moms Fridge resulted in a Roasted Pepper, Garlic Scapes & Cheddar Bread which was fabulous!
Roasted Peppers, Garlic Scapes & Cheddar BreadIt was as simple as Barb said it was going to be … Make the dough in your bread machine, then fill, roll, rise and bake! I made the dough in a jiffy in the Thermomix {it’s magical for dough making I have to say}, and in my normal tearing routine mixed up the instructions. I let the dough rise first and then attempted to stuff it, which might explain why my roll isn’t as neat at Barbs, and quite rustic to look at.
Garlic Scapes & Roasted PeppersSince the dough rose first, and the red bell peppers were freshly char-grilled {more liquid component}, my dough tore in a few places which meant I had to almost fold it over several times to keep the stuffing in safe. In the end, the Roasted Pepper, Garlic Scapes & Cheddar Bread looked more like one of my favourite breads, the French Fougasse, which I make quite often.
Roasted Peppers, Garlic Scapes & Cheddar BreadDo check out Barbs post to see how it should actually look. The bread however was delicious and I served it with a mushroom potato soup and a green salad. Yummy meal and the bread went FAST!
Roasted Peppers, Garlic Scapes & Cheddar BreadThank you Barb was this beautiful recipe, and I do apologise for the late post.

About me: I am a freelance food writer, recipe developer and photographer. Food is my passion - baking, cooking, developing recipes, making recipes healthier, using fresh seasonal produce and local products, keeping a check on my carbon footprint and being a responsible foodie! I enjoy food styling, food photography, recipe development and product reviews. I express this through my food photographs which I style and the recipes I blog. My strength lies in 'Doing Food From Scratch'; it must taste as good as it looks, and be healthy too. Baking in India, often my biggest challenge is the non-availability of baking ingredients, and this has now become a platform to get creative on. I enjoy cooking immensely as well.

  12. That looks really good! When you make the dough in the bread machine, it does rise. I just punch it down and then roll it out.
    Great minds think alike–over the weekend I made a “non-pepperoni” bread with some sauteed onions and peppers and mozzarella cheese. It was a HUGE hit. I want to try this bread your way; it looks fabulous with the peppers and cheese all throughout the bread.
    I’m glad you enjoyed the recipe and thanks for the great way to modify it!

  15. What a beautiful loaf… I think you could have just pretended that you purposely made it so rustic, and I wouldn’t have known any better. :)
    PS – I’ve never seen a garlic scape with the bulb still attached… it’s so pretty! The scapes we can buy over here are just a thick curly stem with a pointy tip, since they cut them off in the spring to force the garlic to focus its energies on the bulb.

  17. This looks fabulous. I should make this with Indian flavors and some chili for my husband 😉 Not soup season here in Bangalore as it’s already hot but will make it in Monsoon for sure :)

  19. I love this recipe. Mouth. Watering..

  20. Oh that looks good Deeba. I wish I’d made such & variety of breads during winters!
    And I’m surprised how the ‘garlic scapes with greens’ look like scallions (spring onions) – to think of it, it’s onion & garlic at the same time?! Hehe! 😀

  21. I love home made breads and soups. It’s all looking too delish for me at 1am here in Florida. My stomach is actually growling 😀

  22. Deeba, you know I am a huge fan of baking bread at home and yours are each better than the last. Always perfect and always filled with a surprising and tasty blend of ingredients. I must try this recipe – love the cheddar, scapes and roasted red peppers – how perfect!

  23. What gorgeous bread. I’m hungry already.

  26. Nice! One day when I am courageous enough to use yeast, I will try this bread! I know my husband will have the whole loaf 😀

  27. This recipe looks fantastic! I am actually hosting a garlic scapes linky party at 2 Sisters Cities as part of our Fresh Produce Tuesday series. I would love if you submitted this recipe!

    Hi Deeba. Recipe sounds really yummy. Will try it over the weekend. Recipe asks for Gluten. Is there a specific brand you use or where in Gurgaon would it be available ? Any leads would be greatly appreciated.
