Kale Bread



This Kale bread has a lightly sweet flavor, good texture, and slices beautifully. The flavor of the kale and olive oil really comes through. It's delicious and excellent with any egg dish.

Kale Bread

Ingredients

2 Cups/100 grams Chopped Organic Curly Kale Leaves
¾ Cup Water
2 Cups/240 grams Organic All-Purpose Flour
¾ Cup/90 grams Organic Pastry Flour
¾ tsp Instant Yeast
1 ½ Tbsp Fine Granulated Sugar
¼ tsp Sea Salt
2 Tbsp Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
Additional all-purpose flour, if needed

Method

Combine kale and water, puree until smooth. Pour kale juice through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl.

Place the flours, yeast, sugar, sea salt, olive oil, and kale juice in a mixing bowl. Attach the dough hook. Stir and knead until the dough is soft and elastic. (If the dough is too soft, begin adding more all-purpose flour, one tablespoon at a time.)

Place the dough into an oiled bowl; turn dough over so that the top is greased too. Cover with plastic wrap or a damp tea towel and leave the dough to rise, about an hour.

Punch down the dough. Roll into a rectangle, beginning at short end, roll up tightly as for jellyroll. Pinch seams and ends to seal. Place dough into oiled loaf pan. Cover and let rise again for about 45 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375˚F. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Turn bread onto a cooling rack to cool.

  1. The cake has a lovely green. I would have thought it is green tea cake, but kale is an interesting idea!

  2. Is the sugar measurement teaspoons or tablespoons?

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite!

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
