The Power of Flourless Bread: A Recipe for a Healthy Century

In today’s fast-paced world, the quest for a healthier lifestyle has gained tremendous momentum. People are now more conscious of what they eat and how it impacts their well-being. One intriguing discovery in the realm of healthy eating is the possibility of living for a century while enjoying delicious bread without traditional flour. In this article, we will explore the recipe for making healthy, flourless bread that might just be the secret to a long and vibrant life.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup ground lentils
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1.4 ounces (about 3 tablespoons) psyllium seeds
  • 1 ounce (about 2 tablespoons) pumpkin seeds
  • 1 ounce (about 2 tablespoons) sunflower seeds

Procedure

Step 1: Preparation of the Lentils

  • Start by grinding 3/4 cup of lentils (approximately 160g) in a coffee grinder. This will form the base of our flourless bread.

Step 2: Mixing the Ingredients

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the ground lentils with the following:
    • 1 cup water
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 2 eggs
    • Salt, to taste
  • Mix these ingredients thoroughly to get a smooth dough.

Step 3: Adding Key Elements

  • To improve the texture and flavor of your bread, include the following:
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
    • 1.4 ounces (about 3 tablespoons) psyllium seeds
  • Pour the vinegar into the baking soda. As soon as it activates and bubbles, pour it into the mixture. Finally, add the psyllium seeds. Mix well, ensuring all ingredients are evenly distributed. You will get a mixture as thick as porridge.

Step 4: Soaking and Improving the Nutritional Value

  • Let the mixture soak for 10-15 minutes. This will help the dough rise and improve its nutritional value.

Step 5: Preparation of Seeds

  • In a separate dry pan, fry 1 ounce (about 2 tablespoons) of pumpkin seeds and 1 ounce (about 2 tablespoons) of sunflower seeds until they are slightly browned and release their nice aroma.
  • Add the toasted seeds to the batter and mix. You will notice that the mixture has thickened significantly.

Step 6: Baking the Bread

  • Line a deep, oblong, and narrow bread mold with baking paper and grease it with a little oil. Spread the dough evenly and flatten it to shape it.
  • Apply a thin layer of vegetable oil on top. Make a small incision in the dough and sprinkle some sesame seeds.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes in a preheated oven at 180°C (350°F).
  • The end result is nothing short of outstanding – a wonderfully nutritious bread that is both delicious and healthy.
