This my modern vegan version of Traditional Irish Soda Bread. It's the simplest bread recipe in the world, with myriad tasty variations.
I love that you can use whole wheat flour for extra nutrition, or gluten-free flour for those with sensitivities. This recipe is the perfect base for a bevy of additions and interpretations.
It's really whatever you make it; so make it yours and make it yum!
Modern Vegan Irish Soda Bread
2 cups Flour of choice
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Sea Salt
1 cup Nut, Rice or Soy Milk
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Combine dry ingredients in mixing bowl, stir. Form a well in the center, add milk and mix. Form dough ball with hands. Traditional Irish Soda Bread calls for you to cut or score a cross into the top (for Jesus!) Honor this tradition if it feels good to you! :)
Place bread on greased baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes. Turn oven down to 400 degrees and bake another 15 minutes. Knock on bottom of loaf, a hollow sound indicates it's done.
*For a mock-buttermilk taste, add a squeeze of lemon juice to the "milk."
*This is a super easy anyday bread that is a perfect base for mix-ins. Add nuts, "cheese", mushrooms, caramelized onions, herbs or dried fruits to this basic recipe according to your tastes and preferences. It is fun and creative, especially nice for kids to help with!
