Hello there! This is my so far most favourite vegan glutenfree bread recipe. I love all the flavours, spiciness and structure. When I´m about to make and eat bread, I think it should be extraordinary! So I refuse to do simple boring bread doughs! ;D This recipe was created on Gozo, Malta when I was working in Amchara retreat&detox centre where we were „forced“ to cook only glutenfree even for us as a staff members. So back then I learned how to get really creative with ingredients that were given to me.
Vegan glutenfree baking (and over all vegan baking) can be tricky and for some people intimidating. I will surely make a blog post about how to do it right! But now I will share with you some basic tips. You don´t have to use eggs for baking at all, honey bun, you just need to think how to make it fluffy! Of course I´ve failed in this maaaany times in my carreer and I had to bin few cakes or breads cause they were like a rocks or the doughs didn´t raise at all. So I know what it´s like ;D. It will take some time and effort…and patience to master this, but in the end it´s quite simple.
In this recipe I used oil, chia seeds and psylium. That is what it will hold it together. Chia seeds are perfect egg replacement btw. For fluffiness I used tomatoes and baking powder. Everything else is just for the taste. I also love the almonds in the dough. But they are not so important if you would like to make it nutfree.
I think that combination of chickpea and buckwheat flour is perfect for starting with the vegan baking.
So! Enjoy it and definitelly tell me how it went! 😉
