White parsley and pepper bread

White bread infused with parsley and black pepper! Sounds strange? Well, it’s not of the most common types of bread- but it is in fact delicious! The dried parsley is used as well I had no fresh parsley left- so feel free to swap it out for fresh parsley in this recipe. This bread is a bit like the flatbreads that I posted but instead of the crispiness- you get a soft and fulfilling bread!

You can swap out the black pepper for other peppers- especially dried chillies; just make sure to less depending on its… Well- the potency of the capsaicin. Parsley can also be substituted with other herbs such as coriander (or cilantro as Americans call it).
