Dairy, Egg, & Nut Free Italian Herb Loaf
Yields 1 Loaf (12 servings)
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast (1 package)
1 tsp granulated sugar
1/2 cup warm water
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp dried parsley flakes
1/2 Tbsp dried thyme
1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
1 cup warm water
2/3 cup dairy free cheese, shredded
1/2 tsp Mrs. Dash Seasoning
Put the yeast, sugar and half cup warm water in a small bowl and stir well. Cover and set aside in a warm place for 10 minutes or until foamy.
Sift the flour, garlic, and salt in a large bowl. Add the parsley, thyme, and Italian seasonings and stir to mix. Make a well in the centre. Add the yeast mixture and 1 cup warm water. Mix to make a soft dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for ten minutes, or until smooth. Place the dough in an oiled bowl and cover with a damp towel. Set aside for 1 hour or until it's doubled in size.
Punch down the dough and knead for 1 minute. Divide the dough in half and shape each half into 10 flat discs, about 2.5 inches in diameter. Mix the cheese and Mrs. Dash Seasoning in a small bowl, and add 2 teaspoons of the cheese mixture on one of the discs. Press another disc on top, then repeat with the remaining discs and cheese mixture.
Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan with dairy free cooking spray. Stand the filled discs upright in the prepared loaf pan, squashing them together. Cover with a damp towel and set aside in a warm place for 30 minutes to rise again.
Preheat the oven to 415 degrees. Lightly brush the loaf with a little soy milk or water and bake for 30 minutes or until it's brown and crusty on the sides and top. It should sound hollow when tapped on the base.
