Our Daily Bread
This is a picture of today's bread just after mixing, as it begins to rise. I thought I'd share a little tip for those of you who don't care for whole wheat bread, but want a healthier, grainier bread than white. My bread is a whole wheat bread, though I often add a little King Arthur's unbleached and unbromated white artisan flour. If I have any leftover brown rice or cooked potato or dry rolled oats, I add them to the mix, but recently I have begun to do something new. Last week I cooked a little bulgar and some rolled oats for just a few minutes, and put them in the bread. It was just delicious and got raves. :<) Today I cooked a little of Bob's Red Mill 5 Grain Rolled Whole Grain Hot Cereal, and added it. This contains whole grain oats, wheat, rye, barley, triticale, and flaxseed. A powerhouse of ingredients to really make a healthy loaf.
