A Vegan With A Bread Machine: Jalapeño Bread
I think this one is my new favorite vegan bread! It’s spicy, but not so much so that it’s unenjoyable, and so soft and light. I made this as a compliment to a pinto bean and veggie stew, but I will definitely be making it up again often for a side to everything from soups to pastas, and for sandwiches and snacks. You could add another jalapeño for more intense flavor, but I don’t recommend overdoing it or you’ll lose the flavor of the bread to the heat. For less intense flavor, remove the seeds from the pepper prior to chopping. Yum!
