Rye bread galette

A healthy, and tasty, alternative to white bread

Preparation10 Mins
Cooking Time50 Mins

This is a wonderful rustic loaf for you to try. Rye bread contains a large amount of fibre and a small amount of fat, plus it is low on the glycemic index, which means it causes a slower increase in your blood sugar than white bread does. That makes this dense loaf a very healthy and tasty alternative to white bread.

Ingredients Required

For the bread

cold water
fresh yeast, crumbled
organic rye flour (such as Shipton Mill Type 1350 Rye), plus extra for sprinkling
sea salt
warm water (at about 50ºC)

Cooking Method

Chef tips

"Rye dough takes much longer to cook than breads made with wheat flour and darkens much more during baking."
