No-Knead Bread Recipe with Potatoes and Rosemary
Preparation time: 1 hour
Cooking time: 45 minutes
What you will need:
- 2 large Sebago potatoes
- 150ml water
- 400g baking flour
- 2 teaspoons vital wheat gluten
- 2 tsp fine salt
- 1 packet (7g) instant dry yeast
- 2 sprigs of rosemary, very finely chopped
- 1L unsweetened soy milk
- 1 tablespoon vegan fish sauce
- ¼ cup fresh lime juice
- dried gum leaves
- ½ cup of honey
- 1 lemon, chopped
- tahini, radish tops and very finely diced radishes, to garnish
How to make Rosemary Potato No-Knead 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, mash finely, then leave to cool. Combine with the water in a large bowl and mix well, then add the flour, gluten, salt, yeast and rosemary. Mix by chopping with a scraper until a rough paste is obtained. Cover and let stand 1 hour.
- Stretch the ball slightly, then place it on a square of baking paper. Put in a preheated dutch oven and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the lid and cook for another 30 minutes.
- Heat the soy milk and vegan fish sauce in a saucepan to 85°C. Add the lemon juice, turn off the heat and keep warm for 5 minutes. Strain through a fine sieve lined with a blue cloth, then cold smoke with gum leaves.
- Pour half the honey into a small saucepan and put on high heat. Once deeply caramelized, add the lemon and remaining honey, then simmer until syrupy.
- Spread the curds on a plate, then top with tahini, radish tops, torn bread, honey and diced radishes.
