Do you get nervous when you’re trying to bake gluten free vegan bread (either from a recipe or a pre-packaged mix) and you have to make substitutions? Me too! Gluten free plus vegan is super tricky and even just one minor change can affect the end result as a whole.
That’s why I was pretty nervous to try out this bread mix that Namaste sent us to review, which calls for a total of 4 eggs. (One or two eggs don’t make me so nervous anymore but 4 eggs is a lot to sub, especially when you’re baking gluten free and the end result doesn’t always turn out quite right.)
Thankfully, our top 8 free Italian Herb Bread test worked out just fine. The flavor was delicious and the texture of the bread was perfect.
Since you never really know what the consistency of a gluten free batter is going to be like, especially when you make substitutions, I almost used a dough hook, but went ahead and used the regular beaters on my mixer which worked fine. I don’t think you’d go wrong with a dough hook either, though.
The batter did take a little longer to rise with these substitutions. I ended up letting my bread rise for a total of two hours and I think it was the perfect amount of time.
Since I had some leftover Italian seasoning from the Pasta Pisavera, I decided to add it to our mix and the end result was delicious. This Italian Herb Bread would go great with spaghetti and makes a pretty delicious grilled cheese sandwich (using your favorite vegan cheese, of course).
