  1. In a bowl mix the water, yeast, black treacle and salt. Let sit 5 to 10 minutes, then gradually mix in the wholemeal flour and soya flour. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth. Place in a large bowl lightly coated with cooking spray. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
  2. Punch down the dough and knead for 5 to 10 minutes. Divide into 6 pieces. On a lightly floured surface, flatten each piece to about 3mm thick with a rolling pin. Cover with a towel and let rise 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 230 C / Gas 8. Warm a baking tray in the preheating oven for about 2 minutes, then remove from heat and sprinkle with dry polenta.
  4. Arrange the dough rounds on the prepared baking tray and bake 6 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from heat and cover the bread with a damp towel to soften. When cooled, slice in half and use a knife to cut pockets in the bread.


Soya flour can be purchased in health speciality shops or online.
