Tonight, I made the “I’ve just returned from vacation and have almost no food” meal. It was amazing : )
I wanted my house to smell less vacant (Why does your house smell differently after a couple days away?), so I finally got around to trying a whole wheat version of the homemade sandwich bread recipe I found earlier today on Domestic Fits.
- Roasted veggies (I had a small zucchini, a handful of mushrooms and a bell pepper still amongst the living.)
- Homemade wheat bread (recipe below)
- Dijon mustard schmear
- Mushroom dipping sauce (recipe below)
I enjoyed this with a green salad and a big glass of soda water, something I’ve just recently begun to enjoy.
Homemade Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread:
- 3 cups whole wheat flour
- 2 1/4 tea yeast
- 1/2 cup room temp non-dairy milk
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1/4 TBS coconut oil, dissolved
- salt and pepper
- 1/2 TBS agave
Mix yeast with warm water and let froth, about five minutes.
Mix dry ingredients and make a well in the center.
Add wet ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon.
When combined, coat with melted coconut oil and knead for eight minutes.
Let rest in a lightly oiled bowl for one hour.
Knead lightly, releasing air from dough, and roll into desired shape.
Bake in a bread pan at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
I rolled mine out and then rolled into a big cylinder shape, but wasn’t thrilled with the effect.
I’m going to try my own directions next time : )
- 6 mushrooms, diced
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
- tea yellow mustard
- TBS tamari
- 1 garlic clove (I used a garlic clove that was already roasted and found the milder flavor to be more appetizing.)
- TBS cornstarch
- 2 TBS tahini
- 2 TBS balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 TBS agave
- 1 TBS maple syrup
- tea red pepper flakes
Heat all until bubbling except corn starch. When bubbling, add corn starch and whisk until incorporated.
Happy “I’ve just returned from vacation and have almost no food” meals!
My birthday was New Year’s Day and I celebrated by jumping into a lake in South Carolina. Age ain’t nothing but a number…
33 never felt so good : )
