Ingredients

  • 3 cups organic all-purpose flour (You can also use Artisan bread flour for a more "bread-like" texture)
  • 2 tsps baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 ½ cups Almond milk (You can use your fave plant-based milk)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup vegan butter, melted
  • 1 cup chopped kale, fresh (de-stemmed) or frozen

Instructions

TO MAKE THE BREAD:

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly grease it using vegan butter and line with parchment paper, leaving a hanging over on the sides for an easy "pull-out".
  • In a bowl or measuring cup, add the milk and apple cider vinegar together, whisking until combined. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes until the mixture slightly thickens.
  • In a large bowl, add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, garlic powder, basil, oregano, and thyme, whisking until combined.
  • Next, add in the melted butter, minced garlic, and Almond milk-ACV mixture, stirring together using a wooden spoon or spatula until combined. NOTE: DO NOT OVER-MIX! Fold in chopped kale.
  • Pour/scoop the batter into the prepared loaf pan and evenly spread it out.
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick or knife that is inserted in the middle comes out clean. NOTE: Midway, I like to poke VERY SMALL holes all over the bread to allow heat to penetrate through and to ensure it cooks through so that the centers aren't uncooked.
  • Once done, remove bread from oven and let it cool for 25-30 minutes before gently removing it from loaf pan to cool completely.
  • Once cooled, slice and enjoy!
  • Bon Appetit!

Notes

  • STORAGE: Refrigerate leftover bread by tightly wrapping it in foil paper or keeping it fully covered in a cake stand—lasts up to a week. Can also be stored at room temperature for up to 2 days. You can freeze leftovers by wrapping the whole loaf in aluminum foil. Store it in a zip-top bag. Squeeze as much air out as you can without smooshing the bread.
