    1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast and 135g bread flour in water. Cover with cling film and let stand for 2 hours.
    2. Coarsely grind the soybeans in a food processor. Stir soya beans and 135g flour into the yeast mixture. Let stand for 2 hours.
    3. Stir in the salt and remaining flour, 70g at a time, beating well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out of the bowl and knead 1 1/2 tablespoons quinoa into the dough. Form into a loaf and place in a lightly greased 23x13cm loaf tin. Sprinkle the remaining quinoa on top of the loaf. Brush or drizzle on the olive oil. Cover and let rise until loaf is just above the top of the loaf tin. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
    4. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom. Let cool before slicing.

    I had a taste of soybean bread once in a little Mom and Pop diner, and haven't been able to find it anywhere (bakery or book) since, until now! This is a lovely recipe, quite easy to make (I am a first time bread maker), and it has a delicious flavor. Thanks Bob!  -  04 Jul 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I tried this bread because it sounded interesting and different, but I found it to be a little strange. The taste and preparation was kind of weird, although I really liked the crunchy crust on this loaf. The rest of the bread was very dense, and I just didn't like the taste.  -  18 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
