Green Pea Loaf

Green Pea Loaf

by Day Radley 1 Comment

We just couldn't believe the rise on this loaf when we saw the photo on the The Vegan Chef School's beautiful Instagram feed. Vegan Chef Day Radley has created this simple but delicious gluten-free bread using our versatile and delicious wrinkled pea flour or green pea flour.

This recipe uses either of our green pea flours (milled from wrinkled peas or smooth green peas), but any of our pulse flours would substitute well and very the colour and flavour.

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • ½ tsp fresh yeast plus 1tsp warm water
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 100g Wrinkled Pea or Green Pea Flour
  • 50g potato starch
  • 10g fine psylium husk
  • 200ml warm water

Method

  1. Mix the yeast with the 1 tsp warm water until nicely dissolved
  2. Mix the salt, pea flour, potato starch and psylium together in a bowl until well combined
  3. Add the yeast mixture to the dry ingredients, then add the warm water, before mixing well to remove all lumps
  4. Put it into a mini loaf tin and leave to rise in a warm place for 1 hour
  5. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 100 degrees celcius
  6. Put the loaf into the oven for around 30 minutes, until it has risen well.
  7. Turn up the oven temperature to 180 degrees, and bake for a further 20-30 minutes until is sounds hollow when you tap it.

Farmer's Pea Pie
Farmer's Pea Pie

by The Cook and Him

Inspired by classic British Shepherd's Pie but using split green peas in place of traditional lamb mince, this Farmer's Pea Pie from the Cook & Him makes an equally comforting and satisfying vegan alternative. A splash of soy sauce and a dash of our umami paste give a wonderful depth of flavour. It's deliciously topped off with a rich yeasty root veg mash.

Wrinkled Pea Masala
Wrinkled Pea Masala

by Nick Saltmarsh

Inspired by Felicity Cloake's Perfect Chana Masala, this simple but satisfying recipe substitutes whole wrinkled peas for the usual chana or chickpeas. It's delicious with either (or just about any whole pulse) but the especially high resistant starch content of wrinkled peas provides more nourishment for your gut flora.

This pesto really shows off our delicious and tender shelled hemp seed, evocative of pine nuts and hemp seed. With our fermented fava bean umami paste taking the place of the usual Parmesan cheese, this happens to be vegan.
