Ninja White Bread and Tomato Red Pepper Soup Recipe
For White Bread:
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 3/4 cup water
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/4 tablespoons oil
For Tomato Red Pepper Soup:
- 4 ripe tomatoes
- 2 red bell peppers
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 2 cups vegetable broth
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preparing the White Bread:
- In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, yeast, and salt.
- Add water and oil to the mixture. Mix well until a soft dough is formed.
- Cover the bowl with a clean cloth and let it proof at 95°F (35°C) for 50 minutes. This helps the yeast activate and the dough to rise.
Making the Tomato Red Pepper Soup:
- Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
- Place the tomatoes and red bell peppers on a baking tray and roast them for approximately 30 minutes or until the skin starts to blister.
- Remove the tray from the oven and let the tomatoes and peppers cool. Once cooled, peel off the skin and remove the seeds.
- In a Ninja 15-in-1 cooker, heat olive oil over medium heat.
- Add the diced onion and minced garlic. Sauté until the onion becomes translucent and fragrant.
- Add the roasted tomatoes and red bell peppers to the cooker along with the vegetable broth.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir well.
- Close the lid and set the cooker to the “Soup” mode. Let it cook for 15-20 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.
- Once done, use an immersion blender or transfer the soup to a blender and puree until smooth.
Shaping and Baking the White Bread:
- Punch down the dough in the mixing bowl to release any air bubbles that may have formed during proofing.
- Shape the dough into a loaf or desired shape and place it in the Ninja 15-in-1 cooker’s inner pot.
- Add 1/4 cup of water to the inner pot to create steam during baking, which helps the bread develop a crispy crust.
- Cover the cooker with its lid and let the dough proof for another 50 minutes at 95°F (35°C).
- Preheat your cooker to 350°F (175°C) using the “Steam/Crisp” mode.
- Once preheated, carefully place the inner pot with the proofed bread dough into the cooker.
- Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until the bread turns golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
