Serve this nutty-textured loaf very fresh, cut into wedges. It’s good with a hearty bowl of soup or cheese and pickles. The mix of seeds can be varied to your own taste, or you can use just one kind.
E, B1, B6, folate, niacin, copper, selenium, zinc, calcium, iron
Shape the dough into a ‘bubble loaf’. Roll it into about 8 balls and pack them together in a round shape, just touching, on the baking sheet. After baking they can be pulled apart and served as rolls. * Instead of polenta, use medium oatmeal, and replace the seeds with 3 tbsp rolled oats, 2 tbsp poppy seeds and 2 tbsp sesame seeds.
Seeds are packed with essential fatty acids. Linseed, for instance, is one of the best sources of omega-3 fats, while sunflower seeds are an excellent source of omega-6. * Pumpkin seeds are one of the richest vegetarian sources of zinc, a mineral that is essential for the functioning of the immune system. They are a good source of protein and unsaturated fat and a useful source of iron, magnesium and fibre.
I enjoyed making this loaf. i have made my own bread for years but had never been successful with seeded loaves. This worked so well, I shall buy lots more seeds for the next ones. - 07 Oct 2011
