VeganMoFo, Day 28: Shane’s Kalamata Olive Bread

October 28th, 2008 9:10 pm by Kelly Garbato

Shane picked up some Kalamata olives from Wild Oats’ salad bar yesterday, so I asked him (demanded is more like it!) to make me some olive bread this afternoon. Which was really a double bonus – yummy olive bread for me, plus a day’s rest from veganmofo recipes!

Shane adapted the “Classic French Bread” recipe in our Sunbeam Breadmaker manual to create this Kalamata Olive loaf. The original recipe lists a bunch of machine-specific steps, which I’ll skip; after all, if you already have a bread machine, chances are you know how to use it! And if you don’t have one, check out your local Goodwill or a family member’s attic – it’s a kitchen gadget no carb-loading vegan should be without.

    […] This recipe for Kalamata Olive Bread is one of my favorites – and as a bread fiend, that’s saying something! Over the holiday weekend I was craving it something awful, so Shane was nice enough to make me a loaf in the midst of our poster-hanging frenzy. (Yeah, we’ve only lived here three years, and already we’re getting around to decorating. WE MOVE FAST, YO!) Then I started craving pizza (like I ever stop!), so I decided to combine my two loves to make Kalamata Olive Bread Pizza. It did not disappoint! The tang of the bread complements the mozzarella Daiya and red sauce nicely, and it’s even better when toasted to a lovely brown crisp. I see many more slices in my future. […]
