Nutritional information

Ingredients

630g strong white bread flour

180g wholemeal flour

15g sea salt

180g courgettes

10g basil

20g fresh yeast (or 15g dried)

10g clear honey

300ml warm water

oil, for greasing

Method

Combine the flours and salt in a large

mixing bowl

Grate the courgettes and squeeze to

remove any excess liquid. Chop the basil

and toss it with the squeezed courgette.

Mix them into the flour.

Dissolve the yeast and honey in the warm

water, then pour this mixture into the flour

bowl. Mix to form a smooth dough.

Kneed the dough for 5 minutes or until it

is smooth and elastic Put the dough in an

oiled container, cover, and leave to rest at

room temperature for 1 hour.

Flatten the dough to knock the air out of

it then stretch gently and fold the edges

into the centre. Press down gently then

turn your piece of dough 90 degrees and

repeat the process.

Return the dough to the oiled container

and leave to rise again for 1 hour.

Flatten the dough once more and shape

it into a bloomer. Place on a baking sheet,

cover and allow to prove for one more

hour, or until the dough has increased in

volume by 50%.

Preheat the oven to 230 degrees C /

Gas mark 8. Once the loaf has proved,

slash the dough diagonally across the top

several times to allow it to expand in the

over without tearing.

Put the loaf in the oven and spray with

water to create steam. Turn the heat

down to 220 degrees C/ Gas mark 7 and

bake for approx. 45 minutes, turning half

way through cooking. To test the loaf it

is cooked, knock on its base, it should

sound hollow.
