For White Dough:

In a bowl, Mix all the ingredients listed for the white dough and knead for about 5-7 minutes until the dough is smooth.

Place the white dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes or until double in size.

For Green Dough (Spinach Puree):

Steam or blanch spinach leaves until tender. Blend the cooked spinach with a little water to make a smooth puree.

In a bowl, combine the spinach puree, warm water, sugar, oil or melted butter, salt, yeast, flour, and knead to form a soft green dough.

Knead the dough for about 5-7 minutes until smooth.

Place the green dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes or until double in size.

Assembling and Baking:

Once all three doughs have risen, punch down each dough to release the air.

Divide each dough into three equal portions.

Roll out each portion of dough into a log shape.

Layer the rolled-out portions on top of each other, alternating colours (orange, white, green).

Gently press the layers together.

Carefully roll up the layered dough into a log, starting from the shorter end.

Place the tricolor dough log into a greased loaf pan.

Cover the pan with a damp cloth and let the dough rise again for about 30-45 minutes.

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

Bake the bread in the preheated oven for about 30- 40 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.

Once baked, remove the bread from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack before slicing.
