Sun-dried Tomato Bread
Delicious Sun-Dried Tomato Bread
Bread can be made to serve as an appetizer or serving bowl which I have seen done at Saint Louis Bread Company or Panera's Bread Company. There are different types of breads that can be eaten with various meals. For example, when eating a pasta dish i would sometimes eat french bread with it which is very delicious to me. In this blog you will get the chance to see how easy it is to make sun-dried tomato bread! I will provide a list of ingredients for you so that you know what to purchase prior to making this recipe.
- 6 cups of Strong Flour( gluten flour, you can use gluten-free flour if you choose too)
- 1 oz of fresh yeast
- 2 tsp of sea salt
- 2 tbsp of brown sugar( white sugar because white sugar has been bleached)
- 1 2/3 - 2 cups of warm milk ( or almond milk-my preference)
- 1 tbsp of tomato paste
- 5 tbsp of olive oil ( Italy or Greece)
- 1 jar of Sun-dried tomatoes in oil( saved the oil from the tomatoes to use in this recipe)
- 5 tbsp of oil from the sun-dried tomatoes
- 3/4 cups of chopped sun-dried tomatoes that have been drained
- 1 large chopped onion
- 1 greased baking sheet ( pan)
First take your flour, salt and sugar and sift them together into a large bowl. Then make a well in the center of the flour mixture in the bowl. Crumble your yeast into a bowl and mix a 1/2 cup of warm milk into it. Now mix the yeast and warm milk together, then pour the mixture into the flour mixture bowl. Next mix your tomato paste into the remaining warm milk until it is blended correctly. Then add your tomato paste mixture to your flour mixture along with your sun-dried tomato oil and olive oil. Next begin to mix your flour into the liquid ingredients in your bowl until the flour forms into dough.
Next take a little bit of extra flour form your bag or container and flour the surface of your kitchen counter so that you can kneed your dough. Then turn your flour dough onto the floured kitchen counter and kneed for 10 minutes. Once you have finished your dough should be smoothed with an elastic consistency. Then place your dough in a large clean bowl and cover with a a cloth.Let your dough sit in a warm place for 2 hours so that the yeast can cause the dough to rise .
After sitting covered for 2 hours take the dough and place it on your floured surface and smoothed it out a little bit. Then add your chopped sun-dried tomatoes and onions to your dough to kneed them into it. Make sure that you need the sun-dried tomatoes and onions evenly in your dough. Then form your dough into four equal balls and covered them with a towel to let them sit for 45 minutes. Once the 45 minutes are finished then place your four dough balls on a greased baking sheet(pan). Preheat your oven to 375 degrees to bake your bread for 45 minutes or until your bread creates a hollow sound when you tap it with your fingers on its underside.Now allow your bread to cool on your wire rack. Then once it cools you eat it warm with a plate of your favorite pasta. Or you can create sandwiches out of it or make your own panini's. I hope that you enjoy this recipe with your friends and loved ones.
