A Vegan With A Bread Machine: Flax Wheat Bread
I’m completely convinced that the most comforting aroma on earth is that of freshly baking bread. Even if I didn’t eat bread, which I do in large quantities, I would bake the stuff just to fill my home with the mouth-watering, warm scent. Being vegan, the bread machine has become a completely vital appliance in my household, because not only is standing in the grocery store bread isle reading every single label a pain in my behind, I simply like the idea of controlling exactly what goes into my loaf. I have tried countless vegan bread machine recipes that I love, but my absolute favorite is this flax wheat bread with its amazing flavor and perfect consistency to slice up for sandwich bread, as well as enjoy as a side dish with soups and pastas. I especially love to make sandwiches with my panini press using this bread! I originally found the recipe on VegWeb.com and adapted it to my equipment and taste. Enjoy!
