With the New Year comes that proverbial list of resolutions. Though I’m not one to normally follow this trend, I decided this year would be different. Here’s a list of my New Year’s Resolutions:
1) Eat healthier (Duh.)
2) Experiment more in the kitchen
3) De-clutter my apartment
OK, so I have a lot more to add to my list, but I’m taking baby steps. Luckily, I found a recipe that lets me cross off all three of these resolutions. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Multigrain Everything Bread
I know it’s not the prettiest bread you’ve ever seen, but don’t judge a book – er, bread – by its outward appearance. This bread is immensely flavorful, dense and yes, healthy. Resolution #1: Check.
This loaf is also not tied down to a specific, by-the-book recipe. I thought about making it that way, but then realized that really, most anything can go into this loaf and it will still taste delicious. I used a combination of leftover ingredients I had in my kitchen cabinets: Rolled oats, flax seeds, bran, sunflower seeds and slivered almonds. You can either follow my lead, or use other kinds of seeds, cereals, nuts, dried fruits, rice, quinoa or bran. Go crazy with it. Experiment. Resolution #2: Check.
And with all that stuff loaded into the bread, you have more space in your home (or at least I did). Resolution #3: Check.
Though this recipe might not fall in line with your resolutions as well as it did with mine, it’s worth making this bread anyway. After all, eating good food should always be on your list!Stephanie (aka Girl versus Dough) has joined Tablespoon to share her adventures in the kitchen.
