Colourful Braided Bread

Mummy’s Fast & Easy

Happy Friday folks!
Everywhere I go now I hear Christmas songs and see wonderful Christmas decoration.
It might be a bit to early for some of you but I’m sooo happy that this is happening because this is actually my favourite time of the year – it feels like a beautiful fairytale.
In that sense, I’ll be posting easy and tasty recipe ideas for Thanksgiving/Christmas so stay tuned!

Today’s recipe is this amazing braided bread which I think looks quite impressive so it’ll look really good on your Christmas/Thanksgiving table.
I actually saw the recipe on a TV show and absolutely loved it. Of course, I didn’t really follow the recipe, as I never do, but I got the whole idea. 
The bread tastes so good you can actually have it on itself with maybe a bit of butter.
There’s spinach, peppers and carrots in it which makes it a great veggie bread!

Here’s what you need.
