Kia ora! Hello from Auckland!
Since I have arrived to New Zealand I have met and reconnected with so many truly amazing people. I feel blessed to have shared time and moments with these folks, and really feel inspired by the acts of kindness I have witnessed.
As I write this I am in the company of a beautiful new friend, Sam. The sun is entering the room and the smell of freshly baked bread is filling my heart. I have had this super seed bread in the north, with Rachel and spoke about it in the south with Helen. Here is Sam’s take on this beautiful, nutritious, bread that you can easily make your own.
- 4 Tbsp psyllium husks
- 2 c seeds (you choose – we did 1 1/2 c sunflower seeds & 1/2 c sesame seeds)
- 1 1/2 c flour (again – you choose – we did 1/2 brown rice and 1/2 buckwheat flour)
- 4 Tbsp olive oil
- Herbs (you choose! we added fresh rosemary)
- 1 1/2 c water
- liberal sprinkling of salt
Mix ingredients well. Place in a lightly greased loaf pan and let rest overnight to get some sprouting action happening. Bake for approximately one hour at 180 *C (Make sure the bread is firm to the touch and not goopy).
