Sometimes I use only whole-wheat flour or only all-purpose flour. It just depends on what I have in stock. Both are fine, but the thing to keep in mind is that with 100% whole-wheat flour, the bread will turn out much denser than if you use a flour combination or 100% all-purpose flour.
This vegan bread tastes amazing paired with this plant-based Classic Minestrone.
- 1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt
- 8 cloves garlic, peeled
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 1 1/2 cups warm water
- In a large bowl, stir together all ingredients, adding the water last.
- Mix thoroughly with a spoon or your hands. During this step you may want to add up to 1/2 cup extra of flour, a little at a time until dough is no longer tacky.
- Form into a ball, place it in a large bowl and cover with plastic wrap.
- Let dough rise at room temperature for a minimum of 10 hours.
- After allotted time has passed, place dough onto a floured surface and with floured hands form the dough into a ball. Cover dough with plastic wrap or a towel and let it rest.
- Preheat oven to 450°F and place empty oven-safe pot or dish into oven while it preheats.
- Once oven is preheated and oven-safe pan is warmed, carefully remove pan, place the dough in it and cover with lid.
- Place back in oven and bake for 30 minutes.
- Remove lid and bake for 5-10 more minutes OR until the outer area is crispy.
- Remove bread and let cool.
