Easy Spelt Rotis

Easy Spelt Rotis

Rotis, wraps, chipattis, tortillas, have many names, but are so versatile and so delicious! They are also incredibly easy to make. There is good reason this simple recipe appears across so many cultures! Making spelt rotis instead of regular wheat flour adds extra layers of flavour that you probably didn't think possible from such a simple food item.

If you have been to areas of the world where spelt rotis are a staple you will have seen the women churn them out in seconds in perfect round shapes. This takes years of practice. We prefer to approach our roti-shaping with a more 'organic' shape expectation. In fact, making the rolling and shaping process part of a group dinner party activity is bound to be a laugh-a-minute and loads of fun!

Why use spelt?

Spelt is known as the ancient wheat. It is a strain of wheat that has not been significantly altered or purposely bred over time through commercial use. Not only does it add a richer, more nutty flavour to your baking but the gluten in spelt is different to that of other wheats. It is more fragile and more water soluable, making it slightly easier to digest. This article explains more details on the differences of spelt.

Perfecting the recipe ...

This recipe was perfected by Diego and Maria from Inner Wellness Studio. We love to combine this recipe with Diego's mung dahl as a delicious light meal! Deigo and Maria do regular cooking workshops at Founder Foods. See our upcoming events for the dates of their next workshop.

Lentil And Mung Dahl

Lentil And Mung Dahl

This healthy vegetarian and vegan Indian dahl recipe is delicious and versatile. You can make it thicker to serve as a hearty side or add more water to turn into a tasty soup. This easy version of mung dhal includes some of the familiar favourite vegetables, simmered in turmeric, cinnamon and nutmeg for a flavorful, simple vegetarian dish.

Cooking With Dahl Lentils

Dahl lentils and yellow mung (split lentils and mung) are much quicker to cook than beans since they're so tiny. As an added benefit, lentils and mung beans are ridiculously cheap and a great source of protein for vegetarians and vegans. Yellow lentil dahl isn't quite a full meal on its own, but it can be a light dinner when paired with this delicious coco-nutty rice recipe (or another whole grain recipe, if you prefer). This recipe freezes well. Store the leftovers in individual serving-sized containers to take into the office to heat up for lunch, paired with a salad or rice.

This recipe is vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free (check your ingredients to be 100% sure, particularly the vegetable broth and spices). It was developed by the talented holistic health coach Deigo Baldi of Inner Wellness Studio. Diego regularly does cooking workshops at Founder Foods. See our upcoming events for more details.

Coco-Nutty Herb Rice

Coco-Nutty Herb Rice

Rice is one of those things that we eat plain so consistently we forget that it is possible to jazz it up quite easily with the right combination of ingredients. This nutty rice recipe, developed by the wonderfully talented Diego Baldi from Inner Wellness Studio, is a delicious way to turn plain rice into a mouth watering dish that goes well with with dahls, curries and fresh salads.

The combination of coconut, cashews and dry roasted, strongly flavoured seeds makes a perfect mix of nutty flavours, without being overpowering. Add this rice to Diego's mung dahl recipe and beetroot salad for a balanced, colourful, delicious meal!

Rejuvenating Frozen Bread

Rejuvenating Frozen Bread

Different breads have a different shelf life. A rule of thumb being that the longer the fermentation, the longer the shelf life. Ciabattas, for instance, are good for at least 2 days and our sourdoughs for 3 to 4. This is staling. Spoilage (fungal growth) is a different matter.

The best way to preserve your bread is to freeze it.

To avoid both staling and spoilage you should freeze your breads. To defrost the sourdoughs, let them sit at room temperature until completely defrosted. This might take 4 hours or more depending on the efficacy of your freezer. If using in one go, reheat gently in the oven (5 minutes at 140C).

For the other breads (ciabatta, potato and rosemary and baguettes), defrost and then crisp up in a hot oven (200C). Arguably the ciabatta are at their best under this process

Reheating a loaf is a once off trick. They tend to dry out if the process is repeated.
