I have been dreaming about this olive and rosemary spelt loaf for the longest time.
We have a lovely bakery here in the Hills that was recently sold. With the old owners went their fabulous olive and rosemary sourdough loaf. Sigh. It was so good, aromatic rosemary combined with the saltiness of olives. I could boo-boo in to my belly button, never an attractive option, or come up with something to match the flavours but in true me fashion, create something that doesn’t take quite so long. I love sourdough but don’t love the idea of starters and all that hullaballoo. Spelt flour is a busy girl’s best friend. It requires less kneading than regular flour and is nutritionally more dense than regular wheat flour. My olive and rosemary spelt loaf is tickling all my fancies. Aromatic and salty? Check. Healthier than regular bread? Check. Quick? Check….
