Country bread with chia and black onion seeds (sourdough)

Very healthy sourdough bread, with exceptional taste of black onion seeds. Not a fan of onion? Linseed, sunflower or pumpkin seeds can be used instead.

Ingredients (for one small loaf)

150 g rye sourdough starter

300 g lukewarm water

300 g white strong flour

100 g spelt flour

100 g light rye flour

1.5 tsp of salt

1 tsp quick yeast (4 g)

20 g black onion seeds

20 g chia seeds


1. Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl and knead for 10 minutes or use a dough hook of a food processor, as this is quite a sticky dough.

2. Cover the bowl with foil, let rest for 10 minutes and knead again for 5 minutes until smooth and elastic.

3. Cover and leave in a warm place to rise until doubled in size (2- 2.5 hours).

4. Shape into a loaf and place in a greased loaf tin. Let it rise for an hour or two until it's doubled in size.

5. Once doubled in size, sprinkle with water and seeds and place the bread in a hot oven 240 ° C. Bake for around 40 - 45 minutes or until done.
