Offer this rustic, French countryside bread at your next dinner.

It will give you the flavors of fall, especially when dipped in olive oil mixed with herbs and a heaping spoonful of Parmesan.

Bon appetit.

How to Make Rustic Aubergine Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare recipe ahead of time.

    Squash Relish D'Italia
  2. In a large skillet, first warm the olive oil, then cook all the vegetables until soft.
  3. Remove from heat; allow to cool to room temperature.
  4. In a large, Pyrex cup, add honey and hot water. Stir until totally dissolved. Add milk, and then yeast.
  5. Stir yeast until there are not any clumps. Let sit for 15 minutes.
  6. In a large bowl, place all dry ingredients listed.
  7. Add, wet ingredients and yeast mixture to dry ingredients. Mix well. Then stir in vegetables ingredients.
  8. Dump out on a well floured surface. Flour your hands and have 1+ cups of flour on standby for the kneading of this bread.
  9. Knead for 10-15 minutes.It shouldn't be sticky and should bounce back with thumb test.
  10. In a very large pot (sprayed with olive oil) with a lid, place your dough. Cover and leave in a warm environment. Let sit for 1 hour.
  11. Dump out once more and knead for 5 minutes. Place back in pot. Leave for 1 more hour.
  12. Then turn out dough once more. Gently degas. Then shape into loaves. You may get two to four loaves depending on the shapes you choose.

    I will be making one large circular loaf, one large French bread style loaf.
  13. Optionally, wet dough and sprinkle flaxseeds, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, and kosher salt.
  14. Allow to rest, covered, for 30-60 minutes. Then optionally score with a knife desired slits.
  15. Bake in the oven at 375F for 30-40 minutes.
