Instructions
Garlic Oil
  1. Mix the olive oil with the garlic, salt and chopped parsley and put it aside until we need it.
Dough
  1. In a big bowl add the warm water (make sure its not to hot or it will kill the yeast) and add the sugar and yeast. tip: i boiled a pot of water for tea and added my bowl with water on top to warm the water. Let the yeast activate, which will take approximately 5 minutes
  2. Once the yeast has activated you can add the oil, salt, spirulina and turmeric and mix until combined. Now add your flour 1/2 cup at a time, after each cup you’ll mix the dough until you get a dough that you can knead. Knead the dough on a floured surface until smooth. note: try to use as little flour as possible. roll the dough into a ball and dust lightly with flour before putting it back into the bowl and covering with cling film or a damp towel. Now let the dough rise for 45 minutes. Preheat your oven to 200 celcius or 400 farenheit.
  3. Once the dough has doubled in size you roll it into a square shape and spread the garlic oil with a brush over the surface. Now start rolling down from the top of the square until you get a log.
  4. With a knife split the log in the middle horizontally, leaving the 1 inch on the bottom. Now braid the two pieces of dough and roll it into a circle. Put the bread on a backing tray covered with parchment paper and Cover it with a big bowl, let it rest for another 30 minutes before putting it in the oven.
  5. Now put your bread roll in the oven and bake it for approximately 12 minutes (depending on the size of your oven) or until the top is golden brown. tip: you can brush some of the oil on top of the bread before putting it into the oven.
