As it has been pretty well established, I am a very carb friendly eater. Pasta > Sweets. Bread > Ice Cream. Weird, I know but what can you do.

Bread is EVERYTHING. Sandwiches, garlic bread, avocado toast, all need bread to happen. No-knead crusty artisan bread is a MUST in your kitchen. It is airy, crispy and light. It takes all of 5 minutes to prepare and you don’t have to knead it at all. No effort is required to make this delicious bread.

  • 3 cups flour, all-purpose
  • 1.75 cups water, warm
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp yeast
  1. Into a large bowl add dry ingredients and mix well. 

  2. Add warm water into bowl. Using a wooden spoon, stir to combine until dough is formed. It will be a sticky, wet substance.

  4. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and place dutch oven into oven to allow to warm. (Allow between 30-40 minutes to warm) 

  5. While oven is preheating, transfer dough from bowl to floured parchment paper. Cover with towel and allow to rise for 20-30 minutes.

  6. Once oven is preheated and dough is risen, carefully remove dutch oven from oven and place the dough along with the parchment paper into dutch oven. (having the parchment paper under the dough helps it cook without sticking to the bottom).

  8. Next remove cover from dutch oven and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
