EAT BETTER FOR LESS MONEY

EZEKIEL’S BREAD
Ezekiel 4 verse 9
– Wheat - 8 cups
– Barley - 4 cups
– Beans - 2 cups
– Lentils - 1 cup
– Millet - ½ cup
– Rye – ¼ cup
– Salt – 1 dessertspoon or less
– Water – to proper consistency
– Olive oil – 4 – 5 dessertspoons
– Yeast – 2 packets added to water with sugar as stated on packet

It is possible to make with equal amounts of each grain and bean. But for quicker and lighter bread this recipe will be better. Experiment!

Alternative recipe
200g (7 oz) brown lentils
15g (½ oz) dried active baking yeast
1.2 litres (2 pints) warm water (45 C), divided
5 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon honey
950g (2 1/8 lb) wholemeal flour
600g (1 1/3 lb) barley flour
450g (16 oz) soya flour
50g (2 oz) millet flour
4 tablespoons rye flour
• Place lentils in a small saucepan, cover with water and cook until soft. Drain and set aside to cool. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in 60ml warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
• Place the cooled lentils in a bowl and mash. Mix in olive oil, honey, salt and remaining warm water. In a large bowl, mix together wholemeal flour, barley flour, soya flour, millet flour and rye flour.
• Stir the yeast mixture into the lentil mixture. Beat in the flour mixture a little at a time, beating well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 8 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
• Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface. Briefly knead the dough and divide into four equal pieces and form into loaves. Place the loaves into four lightly greased 23x12cm (9x5 in) loaf tins. Cover the loaves with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 190 C / Gas mark 5.
• Bake in preheated oven for about 1 hour, or until bottom of a loaf sounds hollow when tapped.

Sit back and enjoy. Healthy and Happy Eating!
