Last time, I shared how to make your own sprouted beans, grains, and seeds at home, which is a great idea if you want to get more nutrients, protein and fiber out of the foods you eat. Read all about how to sprout here.
So today, I’m going to give you the recipe we use at our house to make our own sprouted bread, which is the only gluten food I recommend you eat.
This recipe is surprisingly easy and once you start making your own delicious bread, which fills your home with a comforting aroma, you’re not going to go back to buying the store bought stuff that’s filled with all sorts of nasty preservatives.
So I hope you’ll give sprouting a try and then use your sprouts to make this delicious bread, which you can enjoy with…
- a drizzle of Manuka honey, cinnamon, and raw almond butter
- avocado, a drizzle of organic extra virgin olive oil, cumin, chia seeds, and sea salt
- hummus, sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, sea salt, black pepper, and black sesame seeds
- or your favorite alkaline toppings
HOMEMADE EZEKIEL BREAD
3 ½ cups of sprouted wheat, millet, or barley or a combination of your favorite sprouts
1 ½ tsp. sea salt (Celtic Grey or Himalayan)
1 packet (1/4 oz.) of dry-activated yeast (non alkaline, but needed for this recipe. Perhaps the ONLY time you will ever see me using yeast!)
Dehydrate the sprouts in the oven or dehydrator for 12-18 hours. You can do this by baking them at a very low temperature or dehydrate at 115 degrees for the time above.
Once fully dehydrated, put the sprouts in your food processor along with the salt. Process until it comes together into a ball.
Leave in an airtight container for up to 12 hours for non-sourdough bread and 1 or 2 days for a sourdough taste.
Knead the dough along with the dry-activated yeast for at least 20 minutes. Form it into a ball and transfer it to a bowl. Let it rise, covered in plastic, for 1 to 2 hours.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Using a bread pan that has been treated with coconut or olive oil, add the dough and bake for 1 hour.
