Orly’s Gluten Free Vegan Healthy Seeded Sandwich Bread
2 tsp (7 grams) or 1 packet of instant yeast
1 cup (230 ml) lukewarm water
2 1/2 cups (300) grams Blends by Orly Tuscany Blend
1/4 cup (50 grams) vegetable oil
1 1/2 Tablespoons (34 grams) honey
1/4 cup (20 grams) chia seeds (“Mom” prefers Carrington Farms)
1/4 cup (20 grams) flax seeds (“Mom” prefers Carrington Farms)
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
2 Tablespoons pumpkin seeds (optional garnish; “Mom” uses SuperSeedz)
Mix: In the bowl of you stand mixer with a paddle attachment or in a bread machine, combine all the ingredients, and mix together to make a soft, smooth, slightly sticky dough.
Proof: Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover the bowl, and allow it to rise in a warm temperate (approximately 90 degrees F) untill it’s almost doubled in size, about 30-45 minutes.
Lightly grease a 9″ x 5″ loaf pan. Flour your work surface and the surface of your dough with Tuscany Blend or white rice flour. Gently shape the dough into a smooth log, and place it into the pan, smooth side up.
Cover the pan with lightly greased plastic wrap or with a warm towel, and allow the loaf to rise till it’s raised over the rim of the pan by about 3/4″, about 45 minutes. For a faster proof time, let your loaf sit in an oven set to a warming temperature of about 90-100 degrees F for about 30 minutes.
Bake: Towards the end of the rising time, preheat the oven to 350°F. If you don’t mind that the bread is not vegan, adding an outer coat of egg-wash will give your bread a glossy and crusty finish. Otherwise, brush the top of the dough with water-wash and sprinkle it with pumpkin seeds. Bake the bread for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the tops are a golden color and makes a hollow sound to the touch. Remove the loaf from the oven, and turn it out of the pan onto a rack to cool. Slice the bread in advance and freeze for up to 9 months. Makes 1 loaf.
