The More-with-Less Cookbook rocks! The subtitle reads "suggestions by Mennonites on how to eat better and consume less of the world's limited food resources"--in addition to nutritious and low-cost recipes, this book is a manual on thinking about food more globally.
I will occasionally share recipes and tips from this wonderful handbook.
I made this oatmeal bread the other day. Though it indicates a yield of two loaves, I was able to also make a few mini-loaves on top of that--great for sharing!
Combine in large bowl:
1 c. quick oats
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 T. salt
2 T. margarine
Pour 2 c. boiling water over mixture, and stir to combine.
Dissolve 1 package dry yeast in 1/2 c. warm water.
When batter is cooled to lukewarm, add yeast.
Stir in 5 c. white flour.
When dough is stiff enough to handle, turn onto floured board and knead for 5 minutes. Place in greased bowl, cover and let rise until doubled. Punch down and let rise again. Shape into 2 loaves (see my note above) and place in greased loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Cool on rack, brushing loaves with margarine for a soft crust.
