This recipe can be very forgiving. It can be made with any kind of flour. White flour dough usually needs less water.
Especially in the spring it is very probable that our stored onions sprout. We do not have to throw the sprouted onions away, all we need is to make an onion bread and reduce our food waste!
Instead of using oil to sauté the onions for the onion bread, I use water. This is the main reason why my Vegan Onion Bread recipe is the lightest.
