A simple, delicious and healthy spring dish with green asparagus and fresh homemade tomato almond pesto, which is perfect to serve with pasta, eggs, seafood, steak, and chicken and it’s ready to enjoy in 20 minutes or less if you have some quality store-bought pesto ready. It's naturally gluten-free, dairy-free and keto-friendly.

  • 600 g Cherry tomatoes
  • 30 g Almonds, roasted
  • 1 Garlic clove, minced
  • 4 tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • A large pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 750 g Green asparagus, trimmed
  1. Preheat oven to 220C/425F. Roast tomatoes on a rimmed baking sheet, turning once, until blistered and lightly charred, 15-20 minutes. Let cool slightly. Finely chop almonds in a food processor. Add garlic, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, red wine vinegar, paprika, cayenne, and half of roasted tomatoes. Pulse to a coarse pesto consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Place the asparagus into a mixing bowl, and drizzle with the olive oil. Toss to coat the spears, then sprinkle with garlic, salt, and pepper. Arrange the asparagus onto a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake in the 220C/425F hot oven until just tender, 12-15 minutes depending on thickness.
  3. Toss the roasted asparagus with the prepared pesto. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed. Add the remaining tomatoes and transfer to a platter. You can also arrange the roasted asparagus and remaining tomatoes on a platter and spoon the pesto over. Garnish with some fresh herbs of your choice.

Spelt Bread with Blueberry Wild Yeast Water

Friday, June 10, 2022

bubbly active blueberry wild yeast


© 2022 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com


A simple artisan bread prepared with wild yeast water that's cultivated with 150 grams of fresh organic blueberries and 500 ml filtered tap water. Mix them in a plastic or glass container and let sit 5-6 days until bubbly and active before using. You don't have yeast water yet? Here you can find out how easy it is to grow and use the wild yeast. A preferment was then mixed and perfemented using a portion of active wild yeast water and flour 12-18 hours in advance of mixing the final dough. Using a preferment in bread is to delay the fermentation, so the yeast and natural enzymes present in flour have time to take action on the starches and proteins in the dough, resulting in a more complex, flavourful bread.
The preferment can be of a stiff texture, it can be quite loose in texture, or it can simply be a piece of mixed bread dough. Some preferments contain salt, others do not. In general, 1/4 to 1/2 of a bread recipe's total flour will be used to create a preferment. The amount of liquid depends entirely on what kind of preferment you are going to use. High hydration poolish (usually 100% hydration), low hydration biga (usually 60% hydration) and pâte fermentée, aka chef, or old dough (the same hydration level of its final dough) are the three “mother preferments”.

PrefermentMain Dough
  • 50 g Blueberries from cultivating wild yeast water
  • 200 g Active blueberry wild yeast water
  • 150 g Spelt bread flour #1050
  • Preferment
  • 300 g Spelt bread flour #1050
  • 50 g Dark rye flour #1150
  • 120 g Active blueberry wild yeast water
  • 10 g Kala namak black salt
  1. Puree the blueberries with the active yeast water. Mix in the spelt flour and leave to rise at room temperature for 12-18 hours.
  2. Add the preferment, spelt and rye flour to the bowl of your mixer and knead on the lowest speed for 3 minutes. Add the yeast water a little at a time as the dough absorbs the liquid. Increase the speed to medium and knead for a further 8-10 minutes. After 5 minutes, knead in the salt.
  3. Grease a large bowl with some olive oil and place in the dough. Stretch and fold once on all sides. Leave to ferment at room temperature for 5-6 hours, folding again after 1 and 2 hours if possible.
  4. Shape the dough into a round and place in an round floured proofing basket with the seam side down. Cover and leave to rise for another 3-4 hours at room temperature.
  5. Preheat the oven to 250C/480F . Place a baking stone in the lower half of the oven. If you don't have a baking stone, a baking tray works too. At the bottom of your oven, place a baking tray for water to create the steam.
  6. Turn the dough out onto a floured parchment paper. Now the seam side is up. Transfer to the hot baking stone. Pour 1 cup of water into the baking tray at the bottom of your oven. Close the oven door immediately.
  7. After 15 minutes, open the oven briefly so that the steam can escape. Reduce the temperature to 210C/410F. Bake for another 30-35 minutes until bread is deep dark brown and crisp. Remove and cool the bread on a wire rack for at least 2 hours before slicing.

Rye Mixed Bread with Wild Yeast Starter

A fun bread recipe for a hearty, healthy and sensationally aromatic, crispy and rustic rye mixed bread made from wholemeal rye and wheat flour. A cultivated wild yeast starter is used as a leavening agent, which ensures a fine flavour, aroma, long freshness and at the same time a good oven spring. Barley malt extract not only contributes to the flavour but also encourages a browner crust and a glossy sheen. If you don't have barley malt extract, then a good substitute will be sugar beet syrup, honey or molasses. All in all, a very tasty, wholesome bread that goes well with hearty dishes or toppings. Or simply enjoy it with a generous smear of butter - you absolutely have to try it.

  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Place the pine nuts in a dry skillet. Heat over medium heat for about 3 minutes until lightly golden and fragrant.
  2. Cut the tomatoes into slices and arrange them on a serving platter with the black olives.
  3. Generously drizzle olive oil over the tomatoes until they’re shiny and well coated, then add the red wine vinegar. Scatter the chopped chives and blossoms on top, then season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the toasted pine nuts over and serve immediately.

If you are trying to avoid empty-calorie bread made with plain flour and looking for a healthy alternative that's easy to make and doesn't taste like cardboard, this bread will fit the bill perfectly. Enriched with the eathy, nutty taste of roasted hazelnuts, this easy, perfectly dense mixed loaf bread packs with nutrients and offers so much flavour well beyond what a basic wheat bread can achieve. The combination of spelt and rye gives the bread a pleasant tang with earthy flavour and hearty taste. The milk and butter add just the right amount of fat to make this wholesome, no-nonsense bread pairs exceptionally well with all sorts of cheeses, cured meats, and preserves.

  4. Cover the dough with a clean kitchen towel and leave it in a warm place for about 1 hour until double in size.
  5. Line a 28-30 cm x 10 cm loaf pan with a parchment paper.
  6. Gently flatten the dough and roll out to a 28x25 cm rectangle. Starting from the long side roll the dough into a log and place, with the seam side down, into the prepared loaf pan. Lightly dust the surface with flour and proof for 45-60 minutes.
  7. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Bake the bread in the middle of hot oven for 50-60 minutes. Remove the bread and turn out onto a wire rack to cool complately. Slice and serve.
