At Project Somos we teach children about food, through our Farm to Table Program. They learn to plant, harvest, cook and eat healthy food. We incorporate different learning opportunities into the whole process. And guess what? It works! The kids are falling in love with food. Every part of it! We hope this video will inspire YOU to cook with your kids and to venture into new and healthier foods. If we can do it with kids who are used to a very simple diet of beans and tortillas, you can do it too!
Here is the recipe: Rosemary Artisan Bread
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon yeast
1 1/2 cups lukewarm water
You will need to cook in an oven-safe pan with a lid.
DIRECTIONS: Stir your flour, salt, yeast and rosemary together.
FYI-you can change up rosemary for any other type of spice combo you like. We also love it with jalepeños.
Stir in the warm water. Do not over mix the dough. Actually, the less you stir, the more nice bubbles form!
Cover the bowl and let it sit at room temperature for anywhere between 8 and 24 hours. The dough will rise and get nice and bubbly. When your dough is ready, preheat your oven to 450 degrees F. Place your uncovered pan in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. While your pan is preheating, turn your dough onto a well-floured surface. With floured hands, form the dough into a ball. Cover dough loosely with plastic wrap and let rest. After the 30 minutes are up, carefully remove your pan from the oven. With floured hands, place the bread dough into it. We like to put the parchment paper in at this point (not like in the video when we showed it going in for the preheating duration). Put the cover on the pan and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the cover and bake for another 7-15 minutes. Remove the bread and allow it to cool.
We would love to see photos of your Rosemary Artisan Bread!
