Gourmet Nuts and Dried Fruit sent me this huge box of my favorite little nuggets of love and asked me to try them out in my baking. We discussed earlier this week all The Health Benefits of Pistachios so I wanted to use them in conjunction with this amazing sprouted wheat flour to really get all that nutrition in one place.
This is "Staff of Life" kind of bread. It will definitely give you a huge boost of energy as well as a full gamut of benefits. If you don't want to use dried peaches, this recipe will work with any dried fruit. Figs would be amazing!
Pistachio Peach Sprouted Einkorn Artisan Bread
Yield: 1 loaf
3 cups Sprouted Einkorn Wheat Flour
1 tsp Salt
1 1/2 cups Water, lukewarm
1 cup Raw Pistachios, chopped
1/2 cup Dried Peaches or any Dried Fruit, chopped
1/2 cup Coconut Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Yeast, active dry
Directions: Combine all ingredients in a large 1 gallon bowl, and mix by hand until combined, about 2 minutes.
Cover tightly with plastic wrap or a lid and allow to sit at room temperature 1 hour. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured countertop. Cut it in half and form each part gently into a ball. Roll dough into a rectangle and fold into thirds. Roll, pinch, and form into a loaf. Place in greased 4 quart dutch oven loaf and raise one hour. Preheat oven to 425°. When oven is hot and only then, place loaves in the oven. Covered with lid. After 15 minutes, reduce heat to 325 ° and remove lid, Continue baking for 30-35 minutes, until internal temperature is over 175°.
There you go! Make some nutritious and extremely delicious bread. Your body will thank you!
Always My Very Best,
Your Friend Chef Tess
