Breadless Bread


Bread: \ˈbred\ a baked food made from a mixture of flour and water.

So, if this loaf doesn’t contain any flour, of any sort, shall it still be deemed “bread”? I think so. If only I had thought up this recipe… good thing the delightful blog My New Roots got that covered and Sarah B. thought up this fun take on the same ol’, same ol’. It is her creation, so go admire her recipes and the real food she pays homage to in every recipe. If, or when, you do choose to bake this bread, I have three suggestions:

1. Line the bottom of your loaf pan with a little oiled parchment paper… it makes the recipe a breeze.

2. Use 1/2 teaspoon finely ground salt and mix it in with the liquid ingredients so every bite of the finished bread is perfectly seasoned.

3. Change things up with the nuts and seeds and get back to me–I want variations on a theme (always a fan favorite here at Essential Omnivore). Or maybe you find yourself with a bit of orange zest… in it goes. Or you want something savory and a few slices of onions are stirred within. Or you have caraway in the cupboard and are feeling especially Norske in these dark, cold days. You know what I mean.

It was kind of a big deal for a split second to post this recipe. I’ve been adamant about posting only grain-free recipes for a long time. Don’t worry–this recipe is still gluten-free, and I don’t see anything changing on that front (5.5 years and going strong!)… but I’m loosening up around here. This blog was getting STUFFY and to be frank, I love good food that makes me feel good. And this bread (bread!!) does that.
