Ingredients:

  • 2 pkg. dry yeast (quick rise)
  • 3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon vegan sugar
  • 1 cup unbleached white flour
  • 1/3 cup warm water
  • Corn meal
  • 1 teaspoon salt (more or less, this is optional and does flavor the vegan bread)
  • 1 cup water

Directions:

Melt the yeast, vegan sugar, 1/3 c. warm water in a bowl and set aside. Mix the flours, salt, in a bowl, add the yeast mix, and then the water. Mix the dough until smooth, about 5 mins. Let rise covered with a damp cloth for one hour. Punch down, and divide into two or four loaves, then slice tops about 2 inch across, 1/4 inch deep. Place in cold oven set to 350. Bake for one hour. Sprinkle the cornmeal on the bottom of the baking sheet so the vegan bread won’t stick. For crustier bread, place a pan of water on the bottom of the stove for 1st 30 minutes, then remove.
