No-knead Whole Wheat Sourdough Bread THM-E

Sourdough bread is so fascinating to me. I love to experiment with different ways, methods, and with my large family, they eat it right up. This method is very easy and the gluten is developed by the stretch and folds. It is a simple recipe that only uses 5 ingredients and is just stirred together using a large spatula or spoon. I found my clay baker at a thrift store for just a few dollars and I love it.

In a large mixing bowl, stir all ingredients together until combined. You will have a rough, sticky dough. Cover and allow it to rise for 1 hour. Remove lid and gently pick up one side of the dough, fold it in half. Repeat with all four sides of dough. Cover and allow to rise for another hour. Repeat 2 more times for a total of 4 folding times. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 12 hours. Remove dough from the refrigerator. Fold dough in 3rds, pinching the dough together to seal the edges. Turn dough and fold in 3rds, pinching to seal edges. Line the bottom of the clay baker with parchment paper or foil. Place loaf seam side down in a clay baker. Cover. Allow loaf to warm to room temperature for 2 hours. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Remove the lid from the baker and fill with water. Allow the water to soak the lid for 10 minutes. Slash the loaf with a sharp knife. Empty the water from the lid and place it on the clay baker. Place the covered baker into the hot oven. Set the timer for 35 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 400 degrees. Remove the lid and bake for an additional 12-15 minutes. Remove clay baker from oven. Remove loaf to a wire rack to cool. 12-14 slices.

2 slices of bread are considered an E category and 1 slice an S-helper under THM guidelines.

After a 2 hours proof on the countertop at room temperature, the dough is slashed and ready to be placed in the hot oven. I love my serrated Princess House Bread knife to slash bread. It works great. 
This is what I found when I opened the lid after the bread at baked for 35 minutes at 450 degrees F.

Bread Stuffing THM-E

The fall Holidays are not complete without that tasty dish of stuffing/filling. My mother always made the best bread filling but due to her dementia she no longer can. Here is a low fat recipe you can enjoy this year along with your traditional Holiday favorites. I love to stuff chicken breasts with this bread stuffing, place them in a baking pan, and pour the gravy over all. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

 

Bread Stuffing THM-E

Filling:

  • 10 cups whole grain sourdough or sprouted bread cubes
  • 1 ½ cups celery, diced
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup onions, minced
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons poultry seasoning
  • 1 ½ cups fat free chicken broth
  • 1 cup eggs whites or egg beaters
  • 1/8 teaspoon saffron

Gravy:

Saute celery and onions in butter until tender. Toss with bread cubes. Blend eggs whites with 1 1/2 cups broth. Add seasonings. Pour over cubes and stir gently. Pour into a greased casserole dish. Bring 1 1/2 cups broth to a boil in small saucepan. Combine flour with remaining broth until smooth. Whisk into hot broth. Add seasonings. Cook for 2-3 minutes. pour over stuffing. Cover tightly.
