Flourless Carrot Multi-Seed and Nut Bread

Carrot Nut Seed Bread (0013)

By Meeta K. Wolff

Prep Time: 20 min

Total Time: 1 hour

Serves: 6-8

Ingredients

  • 150g carrots, grated
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 packet (about 5g) dried yeast
  • Pinch of salt
  • 50g almonds, finely ground
  • 50g hazelnuts, finely ground
  • 50g sesame seeds
  • 50g flaxseeds
  • 50g sunflower seeds
  • 50g pumpkin seeds
  • 1-2 teaspoons za'atar
  • A few pinches of sumac
  • 100ml warm water

Method

  1. Place the grated carrots in a large bowl, add the dried yeast, ground hazelnuts and almonds, the olive oil, salt and aromatics - here the sumac and za'atar.
  2. Toast the sesame, flax, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, then grind them finely and add them to the bowl with the other ingredients. Pour the water and using your hands quickly bring the mixture together. It will not be like a smooth sticky bread dough but rather slightly crumbly but it should come together easily.
  3. Line a small baking tray with some baking paper and with your fingers spread the mixture into the pan. Smoothen the top, then cover with a cloth and allow to rest for about 15 minutes. Pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees C.
  4. After the resting time bake the bread in the oven for 25-30 minutes keeping an eye on it so that it does not brown too much. Nice crispy edges are good though! Take out of the oven and allow to cool

Notes: Use any other aromatics that suit your fancy. I have used garam masala and cumin seeds, which is also one of my favorites. But dried herb mix like herbs de Provence are great to.
