Knead a good bread recipe?

It’s the perfect bread pull-apart bread to tear and share and fantastic for mopping up soup or enjoying with an endless variety of toppings or leftover fixes.

This outrageous green beauty has recently become a brand new staple in my Supercharged kitchen.

Healthy pull-apart green bread is packed with greens and fresh herbs and the perfect sandwich option, that you’ll find simple and easy to make.

Experiment with your favourite herbs and seasonings and pass it around at the table for people to grab as much or as little as they like.
