This herb and seed tear and share bread would be perfect for a gathering or party! There’s something for everyone in all these herbs and seeds!
Today’s advent calendar post (catch up on them all here) is a colourful tear and share bread perfect for sharing with friends! The evening I made this bread, I took it to some lovely friends house, where it was quickly devoured!
One of my favourite things about recipes like this is how customisable they are. Don’t like sesame seeds? Leave them out and use something else instead! The list of things you can coat these little bread balls in is endless. Some great options would be sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, pumpkin seeds, coriander, thyme, really anything you can think of that you like on bread… you can use!
The bread itself is crisp and crusty on the outside, helped along by it’s seedy coating, and beautifully soft and fluffy on the inside.
If you’ve never made bread at home before, don’t fear. It’s one of the BEST baked goods to start with! I have a tutorial here on “How to ensure your dough rises EVERY time”, so if you follow these tips, your bread is sure to be a success.
Bread is mostly hands off anyway, other than some kneading, which is really quite therapeutic. Stick on your favourite Christmas movie and get kneading!
If you’re feeling a bit more ambitious, you might want to give these pesto twist breads a try, they are the same bread base recipe, but instead of being rolled in seeds, they are filled with delicious vegan pesto and delicately plaited into little twists, they would also make a great party side!
I hope you enjoy this tear and share bread! I know it will go down a storm at any festive gathering you’re hosting. Don’t forget to check back in tomorrow at 4pm GMT for the next instalment of our vegan advent calendar!
