This is really easy to do. I used fresh chives, parsley, and sage to decorate my tomato bread, which I’m still trying to perfect.
1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Have a bowl of ice water nearby.
2. Put your herbs into the boiling water for just a few seconds, then scoop them out and put them into the ice water. Lay them out on towels and pat them dry. The parsley was a little difficult to unwrinkle completely.
3. Make an “egg” wash by mixing 1 tablespoon soymilk powder with 2 tablespoons water.
4. Just before your bread is ready to bake, brush on the wash, arrange your herbs, then apply another wash.
5. Bake and enjoy!
I hope to get my tomato bread recipe like I want it, then make this red and green bread for Christmas gifts.
