For this Artisan Bread recipe, you just need a large bowl and a wooden spoon. And the ingredients, of course. No mixer and little mixing. I combined several recipes to come up with this one.
You will need the usual ingredients plus four herbs: basil, marjoram, oregano, and thyme – and any other herb you’d like to add.
Put all the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix them up; then add your olive oil and warm water. Stir until mixed and allow it to rise – twice.
I enjoyed making this one afternoon and it was so hassle-free. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it, too!
One day I needed some Italian-flavored crumb topping for a dish. I put a few pieces of this bread into the blender and pronto, I had what I needed without any mess or fuss. If you happen to have some of this left over, you can make a crumb topping, label it and put it into your freezer for a later time.
