garbanzo beanie, channa-lishous, chickpea-tastic… ok, not really.

I had an odd dream about kneeding bread one handed while holding down a conversation. i suspect my arm had fallen asleep IRL, but I woke up thinking about how much energy i spend running to specialty shops for glutenfree breads. i know now they are especially worth it and appreciate the good work they do all that much more. still i will try to make more at home. it is fun.

first tweet of the day was in hopes to find a breadmchine i could play with. within the hour i had one.

i started with a recipe at glutenfreegoddess. it seemed they had the most page ranks and relavent experience with bread machines. i deviated a lot.

i used (very approximatedly):

1tsp salt

1 packet of yeast

2 1/2 cups Red Mills gluten free all-purpose baking flour (garbanzo)

1/2 cup tapioca flour

1/2 tbl xanthan gum

 

 2 eggs (or 1 tbl egg replacer and 4 tbl water)

 1 1/4 cup 115degree water

 2 tbl extra virgin olive oil

 1/2 tbl apple cider vinegar

 

 1 tbl sugar

next time i might not use olive oil. and add more salt and instead of the Red Mill use 1 1/2 cups rice flour and a total of 1 1/2 cup tapioca flour. She calls for potato starch. i guess the tapioca is good enough. more sugar could be nice depending on the final purpose…

enjoy.
