Sun-Dried Tomato & Herbs Bread

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon thyme (if available)
  • 1/2 cup of black olives, pitted and chopped
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, in oil, chopped
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup warm water, approximately

 

 

Directions:

  1. In a pan, fry onions with the olive oil. Keep stirring until it wilts and becomes translucent. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, and the dried herbs. Remove from the heat and set it on the side.
  2. In a small bowl, add the yeast and sugar and mix in about a quarter cup warm water. Leave the mix until the yeast double in size and until bubbles appear on the surface.
  3. In a large bowl, add the flour and make a hole in the center. Add in all the rest of the ingredients including the tomato mixture. Knead until you have a homogeneous and smooth texture dough, then leave to rest for about half an hour or until it doubles in size.
    Note: The face of the dough must be greased with oil and wrapped well and left in a warm place.
  4. Form the dough as desired, either in a round loaf or small loaves, sprinkle the face of the loaf with flour. Using the tip of a sharp knife, make lines on the face of the dough then repackage it and leave again to rest until it doubles its size.
  5. Bake the tray in a preheated oven on high heat for five minutes. Reduce the heat to medium for twenty minutes or until the loaf becomes golden in color.
  6. Leave the loaf until slightly cooled then serve! Bon appetite!
