Okay, I promise this is my LAST post about sprouts for awhile! You, Dear Reader, must think I am quite obsessed with these little growths. But, I had to let you know that I did make the bread with some non-dried sprouts added and it really turned out delicious! Here is the recipe:
Bread with Sprouts
1 1/4 - cup very warm water
1 - tbsp yeast
1/4 - cup olive oil
1/4 - cup honey
1/2 - tbsp salt
1 - cup sprouts (these sprouts were grown to about 1" long and roughly chopped)
1 1/2 - cup flour (I used white because that is what I had on hand. Will try whole wheat next)
1/2 cup wheat bran
1 1/2 to 2 - cup flour (white again)
In large bowl mix water and yeast and wait 5 minutes for it to foam (proof).
Stir in oil, honey, salt, sprouts, wheat bran, and 1 1/2 cups of flour.
Stir until well mixed, then cover and let sit in a warm place for an hour.
Next, stir the dough down and gradually add 1 1/2 to 2 cups of flour as needed to create a kneadable dough.
Put on floured surface and knead until smooth.
Place in greased bowl and turn to coat.
Cover and place in a warm area for 60 to 90 minutes until the dough has doubled.
Finally, punch dough down into bowl and shape into a loaf.
Place in a greased loaf pan and lightly grease top of bread.
Bake in a 375 degree oven for 35-40 minutes.
I didn't have the patience to wait and cut my bread while it was still slightly warm. This made it hard to make thin slices. Next time I will cool in overnight first.
