No-knead potato and rosemary bread recipe
Preparation time: 1 hour
Cooking time: 45 minutes
What you’ll need:
- 2 large Sebago potatoes
- 150ml water
- 400g bakers’ flour
- 2 tsp vital wheat gluten
- 2 tsp fine salt
- 1 sachet (7g) instant dried yeast
- 2 sprigs rosemary, very finely chopped
- 1L unsweetened soy milk
- 1 tbsp vegan fish sauce
- ¼ cup fresh lime juice
- dried gum leaves
- ½ cup honey
- 1 lemon, chopped
- tahini, radish tops and very finely diced radish, to garnish
How to make no-knead potato and rosemary bread with smoked vegan fish curd and lemon honey:
- Preheat the oven to 200°C. Steam the potatoes for 40 minutes, or until very tender. Peel, crush finely, then allow to cool. Combine with the water in a large bowl and mix well, then add the flour, gluten, salt, yeast and rosemary. Mix with a chopping action using a scraper until a rough dough forms. Cover and set aside for 1 hour.
- Stretch the ball lightly, then arrange on a square of baking paper. Put into a preheat Dutch oven and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the lid and bake for a further 30 minutes.
- Heat the soy milk and vegan fish sauce in a saucepan to 85°C. Add the lemon juice, turn the heat off, and keep warm for 5 minutes. Strain through a fine sieve lined with a blue kitchen cloth, then cold smoke with gum leaves.
- Pour half the honey into a small saucepan and set over a high heat. Once deeply caramelised, add the lemon and the remaining honey, then simmer until syrupy.
- Spread curd on a plate, then top with tahini, radish tops, torn bread, honey and diced radish.
