1) Proof the yeast. Place dry active yeast in 2/3 cups water and mix with sugar. Let sit for 5 minutes 2) In large mixing bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.
3) Add the proofed yeast and mix. Add the oil and vinegar. Mix well, then add 1/2 cup of warm water until you get soft sticky dough, similar to pizza dough.
4) Knead the dough for 5 minutes in a stand mixer with a dough hook. Place in loaf pan, cover the dough with a towel and place in warm plate. Will double in size.
5) Gently score the top with a knife, dust with flour, then bake at 350 degrees for 35-55 minutes. Let bread cool on counter for 10-15 minutes before slicing.
This yeast bread recipe is vegan, gluten-free, and soy-free. Similar to rustic Italian or French bread loaf in taste and appearance.
After the bread has cooled completely, place in covered container/bag and store for up to 4 days. Freezer-friendly too!
Even though this bread is similar to French bread, it works so well as sandwich bread!
