Ekadashi Savor Bread Recipe


250 g (2 cups) buckwheat flour

100 g (¾ cup) potato flour (potato starch)

1 tsp salt

2 tsp cream of tartar

2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

2 tsp mixed herbs

2 Tbsp grated cheddar cheese

2 Tbsp sunflower seed oil

200 ml cold water


Heat up the oven to 180°C / Gas Mark 4.

Prepare abread tin or any other deep tin: brush with a little sunflower oil and dust with buckwheat flour.

Sift into a bowl the flours, salt, cream of tartar and bicarbonate of soda.

Stir in the herbs and cheese.

Make a well in the middle and add the oil and ¾ of the water.

Mix with finger tips, until you have a firm dough. 

Add more water if necessary, buckwheat flour tends to absorb a lot of liquid.

Place the dough in the prepared tin and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Check if it’s ready by inserting a cocktail stick or skewer in the middle.

If it comes out dry, the bread is ready.

When cool, slice it and fill with cheese or peanut butter or vegetable pate.
