From my book, "Prepare Before All Hell Breaks Loose!
Here's a great nutritious bread recipe from the Bible, true manna. Ezekiel bread is a Biblical recipe for bread and is very nutritious.
2 1/2 cups Hard Red Wheat or Kamut
1 1/2 cups Spelt or rye
1/2 cup Barley
1/4 cup Millet
1/4 cup Lentils
2 Tbsp Great Northern Beans
2 Tbsp Red Kidney Beans
2 Tbsp Pinto Beans
Mix all grains and beans in a large bowl and mill into a fine flour.
Measure into a large bowl: 4 cups warm water, 1 cup honey or brown or sugar, molasses, Add a little extra water if you choose to use dry sweeteners
1/2-cup oil (corn / olive/peanut),
2 Tbsp yeast/ instant yeast
Mix then set aside for 5 minutes~ mix will become frothy.
Measure the flours and add 2 or 3 tsp salt
Mix until batter is elastic – approximately 6 or 7 minutes.
Pour into 3 greased bread pans in even amounts.
Place pans in oven at 170 degrees for about 20 minutes. Allow bread to rise to within 1/2 inch of the top of the pan. Overfilling will leave your oven
a real mess!
Once raised, turn the heat up to 350. Do not open the door or the bread will fall.
Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 25-30 minutes until the top is nicely browned.
Cool the bread on wire racks. Once completely cooled this bread may be frozen in freezer bags. Make sure you get out all the air before sealing the
Beware, this bread is addicting!
