About Fougasse (With Whole Wheat flour )- Vegan Recipe

Fougasse is the French version of the Italian foccacia bread. It is topped with herbs. Fougasse is flat bread that can be slashed to form shapes of a leaf or tree, or the slits can also be cut to form a lattice. This makes the bread easy to pull apart. Fougasse is a little chewy. Enjoy with warm soup or stew.

How to make Fougasse (With Whole Wheat flour )- Vegan

  1. Dissolve yeast in 1 cup warm water.
  2. Whisk together flours, salt and dried herbs (reserve some for sprinkling on top of the bread).
  3. Add I cup flour mix to warm water, add oil and stir adding more water and ½ cup flour. Stir till a thick sticky dough forms.
  4. Turn the dough onto a floured counter or a kneading plate. Add remaining flour. Add water if needed and knead until the dough becomes smooth and elastic.
  5. Place the dough into an oiled bowl. Turn the dough so that it is coated with oil from all sides. Cover with an oiled cling film or a dishtowel and keep it to rise for 1 hour or until doubled.
  6. Punch the dough and knead it gently for 2-3 minutes. Shape into 1 ½ inch oval by stretching. Grease a baking tray. Sprinkle corn meal. Place the oval shaped dough onto the baking tray. Shape like a leaf tapering at the upper end.
  7. Make several slashes in the bread in the shape of mid veins and side veins. Use finger (dipped in oil) to stretch the slits and to get the right shape. Brush the bread with olive oil and sprinkle the remaining herbs on top.
  8. Cover with a cling film and leave to rise for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 210 degrees C. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden. Cool in the rack.
  9. Enjoy warm fougasse with soup or stew.

My Tip:

When kneading the dough, start with 1 cup water. Keep adding more till you get a soft and supple dough.
