Sasko spinach, feta and cumin crusty bread
Cooler days call for warming bowls of soups and stews. And those are best enjoyed with a slice of freshly-baked bread, ready for dunking or scraping up the last bits in the bowl. Try this easy recipe for a delicious and nourishing spinach-laced bread. Bonus: it’s yeast free, so you’re not competing with the whole world to find yeast to bake their own bread or brew their own pineapple beer.
- 80 g frozen spinach, thawed and chopped
- 2 cups SASKO SELF-RAISING WHEAT FLOUR
- 1 tsp cumin seeds, toasted and ground
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup parmesan cheese, grated
- 120 g feta cheese, crumbled
- 3/4 cup milk
- SASKO CAKE WHEAT FLOUR for dusting
Preheat the oven to 200C.
Squeeze out the excess liquid from the spinach and set aside.
In a bowl, add SASKO SELF-RAISING WHEAT FLOUR and add the spinach, salt, cumin, Parmesan and feta.
Stir in some of the milk (you may not need to use it all) to make a soft and sticky dough.
Cover the dough and set aside for 30 minutes to rest.
Turn the dough out onto a dusted surface and divide into 4 to 6 pieces.
Shape each piece into an oval bun and place on a well-greased baking tray.
