By Lise-Anne Michel {Plum Planted}

Makes 1 loaf

Plant Based, Vegan, Dairy-free, Sugar-free, Oil-free


Ingredients:

230g (1 c.) water

12g (heaping 1/2 T) sea salt

300g (1 c.) natural yeast (sourdough starter), stirred

460g (3 c.) ground whole wheat flour (or all purpose)


Method:

1. Combine water, salt, starter and flour on the lowest speed of a high speed stand mixer for 10 minutes.

2. Let rise, covered, for 45 minutes.

3. Line an upside down cookie sheet with parchment paper, and grease a large mixing bowl.

4. On a lightly floured surface, fold dough in half 6 times, and form into a round loaf.

5. Place loaf on the parchment covered sheet and cover with greased mixing bowl, turned upside down.

6. Let rise in a warm place for 3-5 hours (I use my oven with the light on).

7. Remove loaf from oven and preheat to 350 degrees fahrenheit.

8. Remove the greased bowl and score the loaf, by making 3 shallow cuts with a sharp serrated knife.

9. Bake for 30 mins.  Transfer the loaf to a cooling rack.

10.  Enjoy!
