Instructions
  1. In a large skillet or pan sauté the chopped onion with some lukewarm water and salt over medium heat until they are very soft. Do stir frequently and keep an eye on the water in the pan, there has to be just a little bit of water so that the onion does not get burned. Add the olive oil and the oregano and remove from heat.
  2. In a large bowl stir together with a spatula the flour, the yeast, the salt, the sautéd onion and the lukewarm water until all of the flour is moistened.
  3. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Let rest at warm room temperature for 3 hours until doubled in size.
  4. Grease two baking pans.
  5. Divide the dough into 2 pieces. Tip each piece onto a floured surface. Fold over 2-3 times very softly with no added pressure. Then roll each up into a sausage. Place each loaf with the join running along the length of the base in a greased baking pan to prove for 30'.
  6. Preheat the oven to 220°C or 428F. Place a baking dish filled with hot water on the bottom of the oven. Steam is crucial to making a loaf of bread.
  7. Bake for 15’. Remove the baking dish filled with water. In a small bowl mix some water and olive oil. Apply the mixture on the loaves using a pastry brush. Sprinkle with the minced scallions and kosher salt and bake at 200°C or 392F for another 15'.
Recipe Notes

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.
