Amazing Gluten Free Raw Vegan Bread! Recipe Review

August 13th, 2012

I love bread! Absolutely love it! It is manna from heaven. So one of the worst parts about being gluten intolerant is not being able to eat conventional (wheat-containing bread). Yes, there are gluten-free alternatives that you can buy at the store but they are dry and not very tasty. Also they are just as processed and non-whole food their gluten-containing counterparts.

 

For example, Ener-g Brown Rice Loaf has the following ingredients: Filtered Water, Brown Rice Flour, Rice Flour, Tapioca Starch, Pear Juice Concentrate, High Oleic Safflower Oil, Yeast, Methylcellulose, Sodium Carboxymethylcellulose, Orange Citrus Fiber, Baking Powder (Glucono Delta Lactone, Calcium Carbonate & Magnesium Carbonate), Calcium Phosphate. Enriched with Thiamin (Vitamin B1), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Niacin, Iron, Folic acid and Vitamin D.

 

If you need a degree in food science or chemistry to identify an ingredient, it’s not a whole food. Instead of purchasing a gluten-free, processed alternative, I’d much rather eat real food.

 

And so the search began for a raw vegan bread. Most raw vegan bread recipes are for flat breads or crackers. What I really wanted was the bread feel and consistency. Luckily, the intarwebs prevailed, and this is the result.

 

As this is not my recipe, and I would like to credit the creator, please follow this link for details. Nouveau raw has lots of great recipes, so check them out!

 

Raw Vegan Onion, Tomato and Cheez Bread

 

This bread was delicious! It is a lot like the nut breads you can get at the store. The consistency was perfect, and it was not dry like most purchased gluten-free breads. It is definitely a more filling bread than conventional, but that hardly bothers me.

 

I did make a few changes, and ceased to dehydrate the slices after about 12 hours. They were getting too hard at this point so something to keep in mind next time.

 

Overall, I give this recipe an A!

 

I ate this bread with raw vegan cream cheez, and fresh organic tomatoes and basil. Stay tuned for the cream cheez recipe!
