Homemade Baguettes!

These Baguettes are based on the recipe called “Pain a láncienne” (pardon  my French) from the book “The breadmaker’s apprentice. Contrary to what the name suggests the method of preperation has been invented rather recently (not sure when exactly but certainly not ‘A láncienne’).  The trick is in letting the dough sit over night in the refrigirator with barely any fermentation done. This lets the bread enzimes do their thing undisturbed (thier thing being turning much of the starch into sugars), and only then allows the awakening yeast  to start fermenting (once placed in room temperature).

 

Another part of the trick is very carful handling of this extra soft/gooie dough so as to not let any of the proofing gas escape before baking. I love the coloring of the crust (the result of the extra enzime work and abundance of sugar in the dough) and the flavor in magnificant. My only lesson for the next batch is to form larger loafs so the end result is not too slender like the one I got this first attemp.

  • Kale Pasta with Sunflower Cream Sauce

    My kitchen would not be complete without a stash of nut/seed cream (so much so, in fact, I made a video for the pantry reset series.) It’s a lovely addition to soups, porridge, dressings, or sauces. This kale pasta is the perfect way to use the sunflower cream. The pasta comes together fast and also [...]

  • Brown Rice Porridge

    I’m on a mission to make a porridge from every grain I have in my pantry (not really, but I probably should be). I have my favorites and this brown rice porridge is towards the top. One thing about my porridges that happens to be the case across the board: I like them thick and [...]

  • Pumpkin Paneer Curry

    Post sponsored by Frontier Co-op. See below for more details. One pretty well known fact is that I’m not big on tofu- it’s a texture thing. I’ve tried to get over it for years and while there are some recipes I enjoy, it’s still not a favorite of mine. I’ve managed to adapt most of [...]

  • Chipotle Lentil Tacos

    Of all the pantry inspired meals, these tacos are one of my favorites. Lentils soak up flavors amazingly well. Then toss those spiced lentils in a warm tortilla and add your favorite toppings: it’s a perfect recipe for dinner. Beyond the flavor, these chipotle lentil tacos are fairly fast and most of the time is [...]

  • Sumac Acorn Squash Soup with Parsley Sauce

    This is one of those recipes that I like to push the flavors just a bit. The sumac lends a slightly brighter taste to the acorn squash while the parsley/tahini sauce brings the balance. It’s a perfect partnership that also happens to be vegan (thanks for creamy white beans). I also find this soup is [...]
