Diet & Nutrition > Foods > Breads

A super grain high in protein

One of the world's oldest foods and a food staple for millions.

Bread is made by baking a dough made from of flour, water and most often yeast, and there are almost infinite combinations of different flours and differing proportions of ingredients to produce breads for different purposes and tastes.  Bread may be served in different forms at any meal of the day, eaten as a snack, and may be used as an ingredient in other culinary preparations.

Archaeologists claim they have traced breadmaking back 30,000 years in our history and bread made today may be left unleavened, or leavened and aerated by a number of different processes ranging from the use of naturally-occurring microbes (as in yeast).

Quick breads are those that are  chemically leavened by using baking powder and/or baking soda, examples include scones, pancakes, muffins and pikelets.

Whole grain bread

Breads that fit the holistic description will include any that are based on whole grains, in other words, the type of flour will contain the fullness of the grain that is is made from. In other words, if it were rice flour, it would not be made from white rice, there will be made from whole grain brown rice.

Simple Yeast Bread

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp sugar
  • One sachet or one teaspoon of dry yeast
  • Three cups flour
  • A pinch of salt

Method

  • Add sugar and yeast to tepid ( slightly warm water), cover with a cloth and allow to stand in a warm place - about 18 - 20° and leave until frothy. This can take a while.
  • Then mix in the flour and knead gently for 10 mins
  • Place in a greased bowl and leave to  rise and when risen, knead again before placing in a backing tin and leaving to rise again.
  • Once risen, put into a hot oven 150 - 180° and bake for 20 - 30 mins.

A simple scone recipe

This takes less than half an hour from start to eating and makes a great snack when unexpected visitors arrive for the kids are suddenly hungry.

  • 4 cups of flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/2 to 2 cups of either milk or water

Mix all the dry ingredients together and add water so that the resulting mixture can be divided into manageable portions. And the portions two-way increased baking tray and bake in a hot oven for 10 to 15 minutes.

Scones can be delicious to beat hot from the oven, or with any savoury or sweet topping, but beware that combining sugar with starch may be harmful to the digestive system.
