No-knead breads with high vegetable content

Recommended Posts

As some on this forum know, we are trying to push boundaries of what is possible with bread making, or how easy it is, or both!

A part of this journey for us was breads with (relatively) high percent of vegetable content.

As usual, all were no-knead, no-shape method based. We were able to use upto 75 bakers' percent vegetable in some recipes (e.g. Cucumber).

 

Great additional flavors, easy way to include more vegetables in the diet and to top it all, really exotic natural colors! We also found that the texture of the crumb was much softer without any compromise on the crunchiness of the crust.

 

Here are some pictures for you!

No-knead bread with red Pimento peppers (~35 baker's percent)

With cucumber (78%)

 

Overall, the recipe outline remains the same as the cucumber bread recipe (found here or in the LoafNest recipe book). Just blend the vegetables fine and mix it into the dough. Compensate for the amount of water added by the vegetable. Also, if the vegetable has higher sugar content, it may need a lower raising time.


Thats it! Hope you will love experiementing with your own!,

LoafNest is only ~6 inch tall so I presume it would fit in the CSO. But it may be a good idea to check with a tape measure the size inside your oven after assembling the lowest rack.

Another option is just to use a cast iron casserole (dutch oven) that you know fits in your oven and see if you can make loaves based on LoafNest recipe book. We call it LoafNest recipe book but it is not compulsory to own LoafNest to own the free eBook. LoafNest only makes it easier and better. ;) 

If you try it without LoafNest, it may be a good idea to scale down hydration of recipes by 10-20% because without LoafNest the loafs may struggle to keep their shape in a large round casserole.

Here is a photo of the LoafNest not fitting into the CSO:

As you can see, it is too tall to fit underneath the upper heating elements, even when the shelf is in the lowest position.  It's close, but just a bit too tall to fit. 

 

Another angle

 Even if you pull the shelf out so you don't need to clear that slightly raised rim on the shelf, the lid still contacts the upper heating element. 

 

It's just the height, the rest of the thing fits in fine.

Thank you blue_dolphin, you settled the debate :)

It was a pleasure to see LoafNest in a kitchen half way across the world! We are happy!

Hope you had a chance to use LoafNest in another oven where it could fit.
