Whole-Wheat Beet Fougasse

Fougasse is a French bread that's often shaped and cut to resemble a wheat seed head. For this healthy recipe, adapted from Hungry Ghost Bread, we use whole-wheat flour and add a grated beet. You'll need to use a sourdough starter, which you can usually get from your local bread bakery. To learn how to make your own starter, which can take several days, look for our Basic Sourdough Starter recipe on eatingwell.com. You can order freshly milled flour from fourstarfarms.com.

"Kneadless" Black Olive & Herb Yeast Loaves

3
These rustic olive- and herb-flecked loaves are light-textured, flavorful, aromatic and crisp on top. They are a fine accompaniment to many hearty soups and stews. To simplify preparations, kneading is skipped and the gluten is developed by beating the dough with an electric mixer. Although the recipe calls for regular active dry yeast, a quick-rise or rapid-rise yeast may be substituted by slightly reducing the total amount used; the rising times may be a little shorter than for regular yeast.
