Enjoy Wholesome Goodness with Vegan Enriched Bread

vegan enriched bread

Hello, dear readers! Today, I'm excited to share a special recipe for Vegan Enriched Bread that's not only delicious but also packed with wholesome goodness. Before we dive into the details, let me share a little about myself. Some of you may not know this, but I happen to work for Wisdom Natural Brands, where our brand SweetLeaf® is an award-winning stevia company. Year after year, SweetLeaf® has been recognized as a leader in the industry. In fact, SweetLeaf® was the first stevia manufacturer to be FDA approved in the USA, and we proudly hold the number one market share in health food stores across the nation.


In October, it will mark 17 years since I joined this remarkable company, inspiring my mission to live a healthier lifestyle. While this blog is my personal space, and I'm not here to promote SweetLeaf®, I am a loyal advocate and firm believer in offering healthier choices, such as what we have to offer. I mention this to you because one of the ingredients in the recipe I'm featuring today includes one of SweetLeaf's newest additions. SweetLeaf 50% Reduced Calorie Coconut Sugar is fabulous for this recipe and measures 1 to 1 with sugar. So, I hope you give it a try. If you're not into coconut sugar, be sure to check out SweetLeaf for an array of delicious and healthier sweetener alternatives. There is something for every dietary need.


Now, let's get back to what you came here for - a fantastic homemade bread recipe that's vegan, enriched, and utterly delightful.

Vegan Enriched Bread Recipe:

Wholesome Homemade Goodness


Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. In a bowl, combine the coconut sugar, water, coconut milk, and yeast. Stir well and set aside for about 5 minutes, allowing the yeast to activate.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour and sea salt. Add the room-temperature melted plant-based butter to the dry ingredients.

  3. Pour the yeast mixture into the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. It's best to use your hands for this step to ensure thorough mixing and kneading in the following steps.

  4. Knead the dough vigorously for about 10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. Form it into a ball.

  5. Place the dough ball in a large, lightly greased bowl (using melted plant-based butter is ideal). Cover it with a warm damp towel and put it in a dark, warm place to rise for at least one hour. The dough should double in size.

  6. After the first rise, punch down the dough and knead it again for 10 to 20 minutes. Grease a bread pan with plant-based butter or line it with parchment paper.

  7. Shape the dough to fit the bread pan, cover it with the warm damp towel, and let it rise in a dark, warm area for another hour or longer, if desired.

  8. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove the towel and place the bread pan with the dough in the oven. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until the top is slightly browned, being careful not to burn it.

  9. Remove the bread from the oven and allow it to cool for at least 10 to 20 minutes in the pan. Carefully remove it from the pan and let it cool fully on a wire rack.

  10. Slice and enjoy your delicious and healthy Vegan Enriched Bread!

Healthy Benefits of the Ingredients:
  • Coconut Milk: Provides healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. It's a source of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) that can support energy levels.

  • Miyoko's Vegan Butter: Offers a dairy-free alternative with plant-based fats, and it may have a lower saturated fat content compared to traditional butter.

  • Sea Salt: Contains essential minerals like sodium and iodine in moderation, adding flavor to the bread.

  • Unbleached All-Purpose Flour: While not a significant source of nutrients, it serves as the base for the bread. Choosing organic ensures fewer pesticides in your diet.

  • SweetLeaf Coconut Sugar: A lower-calorie sweetener option that imparts a hint of sweetness to the bread.

  • Yeast: Provides the leavening agent for the bread, helping it rise and become airy.

  • Water: Essential for dough hydration and the overall texture of the bread.


Conclusion:

Baking your own Vegan Enriched Bread is not only a delightful culinary experience but also a healthier choice. With the goodness of plant-based ingredients and the delightful touch of SweetLeaf's Coconut Sugar, you can enjoy homemade bread that's light, fluffy, and packed with flavor. Give it a try and savor the wholesome goodness in every slice. Happy baking!
