Gluten Free Bread Recipe. This is a meal on its own. It is a protein-rich bread, and is completely gluten-free and wheat-free. It makes a marvellous, tasty addition to a meal with a good big salad, cooked greens, and rice or potatoes. It is great nutritious and tasty bread to include in school lunches, and for picnics.
The Recipe for Gluten Free Wheat free Cornmeal Bread:
60 gm of fine yellow cornmeal, or maize flour
60gm fine millet
2 tablespoons of soy flour
2 tablespoons sesame seed
1 heaped teaspoon of baking powder
2 tablespoons melted butter or olive oil
1 grated carrot
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1/2 onion chopped finely
3 free range eggs
1/2 cup boiling water
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon sea salt.
Pre-heat the oven to 200C.
First dry toast the soy flour in a dry frying pan for just a couple of minutes. Lightly brown it but do not burn. Keep stirring as it toasts.
Add this to the millet and cornmeal flours with the baking powder
Separate the eggs. Whisk up the whites to form peaks.
Melt the honey and salt in the boiling water. Add the butter or olive oil.
Add the grated carrot, the diced onion, parsley, the egg yolk, the honey and water mixture which has the oil or butter in it, to the flours.
Fold in the stiffly beaten egg whites. Do not stir too much. Turn the mixture into a greased loaf tin, or a greased square or round glass pyrex dish. Sprinkle the sesame seeds over the top.
Cook for around half an hour, or until it has browned nicely. I found that the cast iron frying pan made a great dish for cooking cornmeal breads such as this one. Be careful not to hold the handle of the fry pan when the bread comes out of the oven, and keep it away from children until it has cooled.
It can be served with a home-made gluten-free tomato sauce:
Simply lightly stew two or three tomatoes with the remainder of the onion from the recipe above, chopped finely, a little salt, 1 teaspoon honey, and just a tad of water to give a sauce-like consistency. Add some fresh chopped basil. Spoon over your cornmeal bread, or serve alongside.
