Bread with spinach and feta

Ingredients:

  • 3 ½ cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of warm water
  • 1 ½ tsp of instant yeast
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • Feta cheese 3 oz or 84gr
  • Frozen spinach (half box or 5oz)
  • Some olive oil for kneading

Preparation:

  • Filling:
    • Cut feta into small pieces
    • Prepare spinach: add all the spinach, the salt, and pepper to the pot, toss it with the garlic and oil, cover the pot, and cook it for 2 minutes; uncover the pot, turn the heat on high, and cook the spinach for another minute, stirring with a wooden spoon, until all the spinach is wilted
    • Mix spinach and feta
  • Dough:
    • Put water and flour in the machine and set it to dough cycle – just kneading. Cover your dough and step away from it for a half hour. This resting period is called an autolyse, and it allows our flour to hydrate more fully. Then add salt and yeast and mix it again. The dough is ready when it feels soft, springy and elastic. Clean the bowl, drizzle in a little oil, then pop the dough back in, turning it over and coating the sides of the bowl in oil. Cover with some oiled cling film and set aside in a warm place to double in size – this will take 1hr or more depending on your room temperature.img_2070
    • Once the dough is read.  Uncover the dough and punch it down a couple of times with your fist, knocking out all the air bubbles. Tip out onto a floured work surface and dust the top with a little flour too, if it is sticky. Roll the dough out to a rectangle. Cover dough in spinach and feta cheese. Roll the dough up from one of the longer sides, into a long sausage.Simple and tasty Bread with spinach and feta - sourdoughmovement.com
    • Loosely cover with oiled cling film and leave to prove for 30 mins–1 hr until almost doubled in size again.
    • Uncover the bread when it is puffed up. Bake in 375F on the middle shelf in the oven for 35-40 mins until golden brown. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for at least 10 mins.

    I really hope you monitor your comments, since I can’t find a way of sending you private email. You need to be aware that most flours in the USA contains several poisons that are NOT on the label, but are banned in almost every country *except* the USA. — including flours that are often labeled “organic.” You keep showing pictures of General Mills flour — which is one of the worst offenders. I wrote about it when I first learned of it: https://olddough.wordpress.com/2016/03/13/an-extremely-versatile-multi-grain-bread/

    1. Thank you for your comment. Which flour would you recommend to use?

        The “bread” flour from King Arthur (NOT their “all purpose) or any of the flours from “Bob’s Red Mill” — or, if you’re very careful about reading labels, some “food co-ops” are OK. Nothing that’s “enriched, self rising, whitened, or fluffed..” To make your own “self rising” flour it’s 1 Tablespoon of Baking Powder to 2 cups flour. To make your own “bisquick” google it, since I forget the proportions…

        Um… Hoping I was clear… ALL of the flours from “Bob’s Red Mill” are safe, while only the bread flour from King Arthur. These can be found in almost any large grocery store.

    It looks great though, throw some sliced deli meats/salami etc on top and some tomato sauce, roll it up and you’ve got a stromboli. 🙂
