Welcome to Rustic Fare!

Why Rustic Fare? 

Because the bread I make is rustic. I haven't seen a homemade bread like this before.

When I started this blog, I was a vegetarian. My vegetarian journey started around twenty five years ago. The first thing I learned was making whole wheat bread a rustic bread!

That whole wheat bread was unusual for people around me. It was a new bread for me as well, dark, heavy and nutritious! It is simple to make using only three ingredients: whole wheat flour, water and yeast.  

The bread I make is also rustic and dark almost the same in ancient times. 
Over the years, I learned how to make it even more nutritious adding wheat bran, oat bran and flaxseed.

My first intent when I made a small one:
This is similar to the regular whole wheat bread with more fiber using oat bran and a load of natural omega-3 fatty acids from flaxseed ground added to it.  

I used golden flaxseed this time:   
The original recipe is called Oat Bran Broom Bread meaning that cleans your digestive system. 

Garlic bread with flaxseed added:
Even when bread has some additions, I always make it whole. This is a whole-wheat cheddar and chives bread. 

This bread is from my vegetarian times. Little by little I changed my lifestyle from vegetarian to vegan so I now can substitute real cheese for vegan cheese.
And spinach bread:
These are spinach-feta cheese pockets. I now use homemade vegan cheese.



Because I'm becoming a vegan little by little, I have to do some modifications to this blog. 

I used to eat cheese, drink milk and use eggs in my baking. It's amazing how vegan lifestyle can be healthy and delicious at the same time!
