Beetroot bread is not a bread that is so famous or commonly made, but those who have never tried this delight couldn't be missing out on more. This bread is peculiar, since its main ingredient is, as the name implies, beets.
With its strong, dark purple color, it gives the bread a special appearance, with a slightly reddish color that no other bread has, in addition to having a sublime taste and texture. In our recipe, however, we took this peculiar delight and made it with a special touch, lactose-free for those intolerant or vegans.
