Taro Bread Recipe
– 3 cups taro root (peeled and cubed)
– 1 ½ cups water
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– 1 teaspoon garlic powder
– 2 teaspoons dried oregano
– 2 teaspoons dried rosemary
– 1 teaspoon salt
– 2 tablespoons honey
– 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
– 3 ½ cups bread flour
– Sesame seeds (optional)
1. Place cubed taro root in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes, until the taro is tender.
2. Drain the taro root and place it in a medium bowl. Mash or use a potato masher to get a smooth mixture.
3. Heat the olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic powder, oregano, rosemary, and salt. Cook for 1 minute, stirring occasionally.
4. Pour the herb mixture into the bowl with the mashed taro and mix together until everything is well blended. Let the mixture cool to room temperature.
5. In another medium bowl, dissolve the honey and yeast in 1 cup of lukewarm water. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes, until it starts to foam.
6. Add the yeast mixture to the bowl with the taro and mix until everything is well blended. Add the bread flour and mix until a soft dough forms.
7. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a towel, and let rise until doubled in size (about 1 hour).
8. Punch down the dough and shape it into a round loaf. Sprinkle with sesame seeds (optional) and place in a lightly greased 9-inch cake pan. Cover the pan and let the loaf rise until doubled in size (about 30 minutes).
9. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Bake the bread for 25-30 minutes, until the top is golden-brown and the loaf sounds hollow when you tap it.
10. Allow the bread to cool in the pan before serving. Enjoy!
