Homemade bread is always a nice accompaniment and takes far less effort than imagined. Make a few loaves on Sunday and freeze and defrost later in the week to be certain that excessive sodium, sugar and high-fructose corn syrup don't make an appearance in your bread’s ingredient list.
Preheat oven to 375°F. To a small bowl, add yeast and 2/3 cup warm water. Set aside to proof for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine flour and fine salt. To yeast mixture, add maple syrup and oil; whisk together. Add wet to dry ingredients and incorporate. Knead until dough has formed. Cover with a damp towel and let rest for 20 minutes.
Form into an oval shape on a greased baking sheet and sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake for 35 minutes, until golden brown.
This creamy carrot cashew sauce with roasted broccoli is a healthy substitute that will fill those cheesy potato cravings. Serve it like you would any traditional cheese sauce over a baked potato or as a sauce for potato gratin or whole-grain pasta, or try serving it fondue-style accompanied by your favorite veggies, crackers, pickles or whole-grain crusty bread for dipping.
