A Rustic Focaccia To Love
The Summer season Solstice is inching towards us, and rotary followers are buzzing 24/7 right here in our humble casa. Mercury has been climbing previous 90º all week. The Covid-19 virus is stubbornly on the rise in our state. It is month quantity 4 for us, hunkered down in isolation (we each fall within the larger danger class due to- ahem- the variety of birthday candles on our respective desserts).
This isn’t a great time to be insanely hungry for bread.
And I do not imply retailer purchased frozen gluten-free bread. I imply freshly baked, heat from the oven, aromatic, tender, rustic bread. The sort of nubby, crusty loaf that conjures the phrase fireside (such an old style phrase) and residential (now a literal, medical refuge). A house baked loaf that’s simply plain good for the soul.
And also you simply do not get that in a frozen plastic package deal.
Be protected, be cool, help anti-racism nonetheless you’ll be able to. Be an advocate.
Clear eyes, full hearts, cannot lose. Peace.
Gluten-Free Goddess Solar-Dried Tomato Focaccia Bread
We discovered some fabulously candy sun-dried tomatoes at Dealer Joe’s for this new bread recipe. They had been delightfully tender and never too chewy. I like my sun-dried tomatoes to resemble fruit, not leather-based. They gave this rustic bread a wealthy, Italian impressed taste.
1 1/2 cups sorghum flour or licensed gluten-free oat flour
1 1/2 cups cassava or potato starch
1/2 cup almond meal gold GF millet flour
1/2 cup brown rice flour

When the dough has risen, flip the oven on to 375ºF.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes till agency and golden. Be aware: At about 20-25 minutes I brushed the highest with olive oil. This helps make a beautiful golden crust.
Serve this flavorful bread heat from the oven, with genuine additional virgin olive oil. (See this e-book Extra Virginity for the reality about olive oils- due to my pal Gluten-Free Anna for the heads up on this e-book.)
