Great Garlic Bread Recipe

Ingredients

Makes 2 loaves

  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 packet active dry yeast (21/4 teaspoons)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ¾ cup warm water
  • 2/3 cup warm plain soy milk
  • 1/4 cup silken tofu, drained
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for brushing
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour or bread flour

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  2. Roast garlic in a small ungreased baking dish until golden and very aromatic, about 15 minutes
  3. Squeeze the garlic out of its skins and mash to a paste
  4. Set aside
  5. In a small bowl, combine the yeast, sugar and warm water and set it aside
  6. In a blender or food processor, combine the soy milk, tofu, the 1 tablespoon of oil, salt and garlic salt and blend until smooth
  7. In a large bowl, combine the whole wheat flour and 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  8. Add the soy milk mixture and the yeast mixture to the flours and stir to combine
  9. Knead the dough for 10 minutes, sprinkling in as much of the remaining 1/2 cup all-purpose flour until the dough is smooth
  10. The dough will be soft and sticky
  11. Brush with the remaining oil, cover with plastic wrap or a clean dish towel and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1 hour
  12. Preheat oven to 425°F
  13. Lightly oil a large baking sheet
  14. Divide the dough in half and shape into 2 long narrow loaves
  15. Arrange the loaves on the prepared pan
  16. Cover with plastic wrap or a clean dish towel and let the loaves rise again for 15 minutes
  17. Uncover and use a sharp knife to cut 2 or 3 diagonal slashes in the top of each loaf
  18. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown
  19. The breads are done if they sound hollow when tapped on the bottom
  20. For added garlic flavor, when the bread comes out of the oven, brush the top of the loaves lightly with oil and sprinkle with a little garlic salt
  21. Cool for 30 minutes on a wire rack before slicing
