Don’t judge me, but I don’t have enough time to make bread like this from scratch...
So... I created this EASY and DELICIOUS recipe for you to make nutritious baked bread at home!
Also, I have to be careful with flours made with nuts because my daughter has a peanut and nut allergy. I found this amazing Gluten, Nut, Soy, Egg, Casein & Sesame Free frozen pizza dough at Whole Foods for ~$6 – and I use that as my base! It's called WHOLLY Gluten Free - so it couldn't be more perfect for a Holy Meal!
Defrost it overnight in the fridge. Then leave it on your counter for 15 – 30 minutes before you work with the dough to let it soften.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
1 package of dough GF pizza dough
1 tbsp each ground flax & chia
1 cup cooked organic spinach - squeezed (remove liquid)
1/2 cup vegan-plant-based parm or mozz cheese
1/4 cup red onion chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
Pinch of salt & pepper
1 tsp olive or avocado oil
Mix dough with ground flax & chia until evenly distributed.
Saute garlic & onion in oil until cooked, toss and stir in "cheese" and spinach. Transfer to mesh colander.
Press cooked mixture into colander (with fist or back of large spoon) to drain excess liquid.
Roll dough into a thin long oval. If its sticking to the paper, put a touch of olive oil on the dough before rolling it out.
Spoon the cooked veggie mixture into the center of the dough in a long line.
Pinch the top and bottom ends of the dough together to enclose the mixture, then roll the tube of dough into a coil.
Place bread on the lined baking sheet. You can brush with beaten egg yolk and cover in sesame seeds, or if you are sesame or egg free, you can brush the bread with a light coat of olive oil and sprinkle with slivered almonds.
Bake on the center rack for 15 – 20 minutes or until golden brown…
