How to Make French Herb Veggie Loaf

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat together Water, buttermilk and butter/margarine to 130 degrees.(Very warm)

    Mix together, 1 1/2 c flour, sugar, salt, yeast and garlic powder in large mixer bowl.
  2. Add heated liquid to the dry ingredients and mix at medium speed for 3 minutes.

    Stir in another 1 1/2 c flour veggies, parsley and herbs to form a sticky dough. Turn out onto well floured counter and knead in as much flour as needed to make it soft, smooth and elastic. Knead in parmesan cheese a little as a time.
  3. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap and a towel and let rise to double. Punch down, divide into two equal portions and let rest covered for 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Roll each portion into a rectangle, using a little flour if needed to keep from sticking. Form into baguette shapes 12" long x 3" in diameter. Place on greased cookie sheet or parchment lined sheet that is dusted with cornmeal. Cover and let rise til doubled.
  5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and bake loaves for 20-30 minutes until golden brown and hollow sounding when tapped. approx. 200 degrees internal temp.

    Let cool slightly and turn out of pan to cool on a rack.
