Fresh Tomato Bread



Tomato is my most favorite vegetable. It can be my salad, cooked dishes or treats as fruits after meal. In my mind, how can I include this food into my bread? It sprang my mind to make them into fresh tomato bread!!!

There are so many benefits of tomato, such as good for eye sight, good gut health, low hypertension, relief from diabetes, skin problems and urinary tract infections. Tomato is considered both a fruit and vegetable. Daily consumption of tomato provides a great boost to health apart from improving the flavour of food. It consists of a large number of antioxidants which have been proven to fight different forms of cancer. It is a rich source of vitamins and minerals and exerts a protective effect against cardiovascular diseases. It also improves eye health and prevents hypertension and urinary tract infections.

With all these facts, undeniably I can eat them in various way in future - be it from raw until bake!
