Garlic Herb Bread
- 4 cloves garlic, pressed or finely minced
- 1 small onion, finely diced
- 1 small bunch of parsley
- 1.5 tsp sea salt
- 1 T honey
- 1 packet yeast
- 4 c flour
- 1 3/4 c warm water
- sliced pepper and red onion and cheese optional to top the bread
- Harvest Oil, I suggest using either Garlic/Roasted Onion and Cilantro/ Baklouti Green Chili/ Basil
In a small bowl combine the honey, warm water and yeast, stir and let sit for about 5 minutes.
In a small pan, heat a T or so of oil and cook the garlic, onion and parsley until the onions become translucent but not browned.
In a large bowl or a stand mixer, combine flour, salt, herb mixture and stir in the yeast mixture until a dough forms. Knead for 10-15 minutes until the dough can be stretched between your fingers without breaking (window pane test).
Cover and let rise for about an hour. Pull dough out and form into a round loaf and flatten down a bit with your fingers tips creating divots in the dough ( this will have the look of a focaccia loaf). Top with the slices of peppers and red onion and drizzle with olive oil. Let rise for another 30 minutes while the oven heats to 400. Bake for ~35 minutes until bread is golden brown.
