I made bread!  It’s a really great recipe i’ve been making for a while now out of Veganomicon, from the ladies at The Post Punk Kitchen.  This time I made a few adjustments to the original version.

Rosemary Focaccia Bread:

1 package of active dry yeast

1 1/4 cups warm water

3 tablespoons olive oil plus some for brushing and greasing

3 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary, plus some extra for garnishing

1/2 teaspoon salt plus rocksalt for garnishing

2 cups white pastry flour

1 cup spelt flour

Combine the yeast and warm water in a large bowl.  Stir in olive oil, rosemary, flour and salt and knead to form a soft dough.  Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead for a few minutes until smooth and shape into a ball.  In a clean bowl, add a bit of olive oil in the bottom, swirl the dough in it to coat, cover with a clean dish towel and let sit for 1 hour.

Preheat your oven to 350F

After the dough has risen, punch it down and place in a lightly greased loaf pan and gently press it outward to reach the edges. You can also shape it into a disc and bake it on a cookie sheet for a more traditional shape.  Poke lots of holes in the top and brush with olive oil, sprinkle with rock salt and more fresh rosemary and bake for 30-35 minute if on a cookie sheet.  More like 45-55 minutes in a loaf pan.  Then go ahead and make the best sandwich ever!
