Method

  1. Dust your largest baking sheet or tray with flour. Mix the flours, yeast, oats, seeds, nuts, bicarbonate and 2 tsp salt in a bowl, then rub in the butter with your fingers until it almost disappears.

  2. Pour in the buttermilk and 150-200ml water and mix quickly with a wooden spoon, then your hands, to form a dough. Divide into 3 and knead a grated veg into each to make a courgette dough, a carrot dough and a beet dough. Form each into 6 rounds with floured hands. Arrange, spaced apart, on the baking tray, cover loosely with oiled cling film, and leave to rise somewhere warm for 30 mins.

  3. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Brush the tops with milk or egg, scatter with extra seeds and bake for 30-35 mins until the bases are pale golden and sound hollow when tapped. Cover with a tea towel and leave to cool a bit – this will keep them soft.
