I love, LOVE me some bread… So, when you can’t have gluten anymore, it’s pretty devastating to have to give it up. During our meal swaps with my parents, my mom was making this super tasty gluten free, vegan bread. I just couldn’t get enough of it. She gave me the recipe she had been using, and I only made a few little adjustments to reduce the oil and sugar… and, I didn’t have the exact ratios of flours, but it didn’t make a noticeable difference in taste. Next time, I’m going to test it out using unsweetened applesauce instead of the oil and see how that turns out. 😀
If you are looking for a fairly simple, but super yummy vegan, gluten free bread, this is a great one to try. It was adapted from A Little Insanity, Soft Gluten Free Vegan Bread. She has a lot of great gluten free recipes on her site.
Vegan Gluten Free Bread
Here’s what you need:
- 1½ Cups Warm Water
- 2½ Teaspoons Dry Active Yeast
- ¼ Cup Aquafaba – Liquid from canned Garbanzo Beans (chickpeas)
- ½ Teaspoon Cream of Tartar
- 1 ¾ Cup Brown Rice Flour
- 1 ¼ Cup Tapioca Flour
- ½ heaping Teaspoon Xanthan Gum
- 4 teaspoons Baking Powder
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 1/8 Cup Olive Oil
- 2 teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar
Here’s what you do:
- Measure out warm water (not too hot or cold). Stir in Yeast. Set-aside & let proof while you are preparing everything else.
- Pour the Aquafaba (Garbanzo Bean Liquid) along with the Cream of Tartar into the bowl of your stand mixer. Beat on high until stiff peaks form. With a spatula, scoop out the mixture into another bowl and set aside.
- While the Aquafaba is mixing, combine all of the Dry Mix ingredients together in a bowl.
COMBINING IT ALL:
- Add proofed Yeast to the stand mixer bowl.
- Add in Dry Mix ingredients with the yeast. Beat slowly while adding in the Oil & Apple Cider Vinegar.
- Mix on Medium speed until dough is smooth.
- Stop the mixer, then add in your aquafaba.
- Mix on low speed until everything is well combined, being careful not to over-beat. (It only takes about 30 seconds.)
- Spray a 9×5 Loaf Pan.
LET IT RISE, THEN LET IT BAKE:
- Pour the bread mixture into your loaf pan and cover with plastic wrap. Set somewhere warm while your oven is preheating.
- Preheat your oven to 375.
- Let your dough rise about 20 minutes. It should not rise above your loaf pan.
- Bake between 50-60 minutes.
- Once the top is nice and golden brown and the center is cooked through, remove from oven and let cool only 1-2 minutes, then turn it out onto your cooling rack (lay the loaf on its side). Allow to cool completely before attempting to cut into slices.
- Enjoy! ❤
