P.J.'s Hummus Bread


This magnificent aromatic loaf can be made with prepared hummus (a middle Eastern spread made of chick peas, tahini and olive oil) which can be found in the deli case of your supermarket, or the home made version, if you wish. The combination of legumes and complex carbohydrates in this loaf creates a protein-rich bread which needs only a salad to become a healthy meal.

  • 2-1/2 teaspoons instant active yeast
  • 3 teaspoons Lora Brody's Bread Dough Enhancer *
  • 2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1 cup King Arthur White Wheat flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/3 cup toasted sesame seeds
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup prepared hummus
  • 1/4 cup garlic oil
  • 1 large egg

Place all the ingredients in the bread machine. Program for White Bread and press start. Check the dough during the first few minutes of the knead cycle, adding additional liquid or flour if necessary to make a smooth, supple ball of dough.
