When making this bread… the aroma alone will send you over the edge. I am hereby reclaiming my love and passion for bread. I use to feel deprived and sad when I would think of how I had given up bread so many years ago.
Even though I haven’t had a piece for about five years now, it is nothing to see me sucked up against a bakeries store front window with my husband in tow as he squeegees my drool off their window. hehe. Some stop and smell the roses, I for one stop and smell the bread.
This bread is complex in flavor and in texture. With each bite you get the onion, the sweetness, the softness of the center and the crunchy exterior. For Bob the aftertaste is the final test… Does it make you want to go back for more? After he popped the last bite into his mouth he said that it left him wanting more. So, what’s a man to do?… He had another… and another… and another… then decided he better save some. hehe He loved it with the Caramelized Onion Spread smeared across the top. Making food that others love is like, well, it makes me feel… I dunno, it is one of the best feelings that I experience.
One of the greatest joys when creating raw food recipes is experimenting with different ingredients… a practice that I highly encourage. Daily I get questions regarding substitutions. Of course we all might have different dietary needs and tastes which could necessitate altering a recipe. I love to share with you what I create for myself, my husband, friends and family. I spend a lot of time selecting the right ingredients with a particular goal in mind, looking to build a certain flavor and texture.
So as you experiment with substitutions, remember they are what they sound like, they are substitutes for the preferred item. Generally they are not going to behave, taste, or have the same texture as the suggested ingredient. Some may work, and others may not and I can’t promise what the results will be unless I’ve tried them myself. So have fun, don’t be afraid, and remember, substituting is how I discovered many of my unique dishes.
