Black Rice Bread (bread machine recipe)
« on: June 23, 2018, 09:48:00 PM »
My doctor told me to cut back on starch, so I bought a bread machine and made purple bread.

Why? Because I'm looking for breads with extra fiber and extra protein. I'm not ready to drop bread from my diet yet, but I figure I can do better than what's available in the grocery store.


Okay, it's not quite purple, but it's purple-ISH. This is essentially a white bread recipe, with the addition of precooked black rice and pea protein powder.

I have a Zojirushi Virtuoso BB-PAC20 breadmaker. This recipe ought to work unchanged with the newer Virtuoso Plus BB-PDC20, the older Supreme BB-CEC-20, and (with luck) with any 2-pound bread machine.

The Zojirushi machines have a convenient "Jam" cycle. Yes, we're going to cook the black rice in the bread machine!

    ¼ cup black rice (rinsed in strainer)
    1½ cups water

Put the ingredients in the baking pan and run on "Jam" cycle (1h20m). (If you don't have a "Jam" cycle, just heat it at not-quite-boiling in a covered pot on the stove, with occasional stirring.) Don't expect all the water to be absorbed.

When done, drain the rice through a sieve into a measuring cup. You'll probably have about ⅜ cup of purple liquid left; we'll include that in the bread ingredients.

Add to the baking pan:

    The cooked black rice
    1¼ cups water (total, including the drained rice water)
    1½ teaspoons salt
    1 teaspoon sugar

Add the dry ingredients on top:

    4 cups white bread flour
    ¼ cup pea protein powder
    2¼ teaspoons active dry yeast (on the very top so it doesn't get wet prematurely)

Run on the "Basic/Regular" cycle, crust darkness "Medium" (3h25m). (If you have a different brand of breadmaker, try the standard "White Bread" cycle.) The dough might look a little dry at the start of kneading, but as the rice grains get broken up, they will release more moisture.

Enjoy!

Sounds good.  Is black rice the same thing as wild rice?

Yeah, it's Forbidden Rice if you buy an expensive tiny package at a health food store, or Black Rice if you buy a cheap 5 lb bag at an Oriental grocery. ;D

I ate last night at a friend's house and they are going gluten, grain, and sugar free to be more healthy. I was introduced to "broccoli bread" which isn't half bad. Found something close to give an idea here....

https://www.delish.com/cooking/recipe-ideas/a20720559/best-broccoli-cheesy-bread-recipe/

It yielded a funny conversation. I am dedicating myself to French and Italian bread baking which requires a long ferment with a slack dough and I am using poolishes, bigas, and naturally fermented levain doughs. I'm not on board to give up wheat but the old European bakers value what they call "digestability" which comes from a very full ferment of the dough. The irony is that both camps agree: Wonderbread is not good.

Looks good and healthy, probably I am going to try this recipe soon because I am looking for some receipt with fiber and low carbohydrates.
