Instructions
  1. Sauté the chopped onion using some lukewarm water and salt; place the chopped onion in a skillet, set on medium heat. The water should cover the bottom of the skillet but it should not cover the chopped onion. Sauté until soft. Stir frequently and keep an eye on the water in the skillet, there has to be just a little bit of water so that the onion does not get burned. Add the oregano, pour the olive oil, and immediately remove from heat.
  2. In a large bowl mix the yeast with the salt, sautéed onion and lukewarm water, using a rubber spatula, until all of the flour is moistened and the texture is smooth.
  3. Place plastic wrap over the bowl and let the dough double in size at warm room temperature for about 3 hours.
  4. Using pastry brush grease two 8x2.5 inches bread loaf pans with some olive oil.
  5. Divide the dough into 2 pieces. Tip each piece onto a floured surface; fold them over 2-3 times very softly with no added pressure, then roll each piece up into a sausage. Place each loaf very gently with the join running along the length of the base into a bread loaf pan to prove for 30'.
  6. Preheat the oven to 220°C or 428°F. Place a baking dish filled with hot water on the bottom of the oven. Steam is crucial in making a loaf of bread.
  7. Bake for 15’. Remove the baking dish from the oven. In a small bowl mix some water with olive oil. Apply the mixture evenly over the loaves using a pastry brush. Sprinkle the minced scallions and kosher salt on top and bake at 200°C or 392°F for another 15'.
Recipe Notes

Useful Information

I used 8x2.5 inches bread loaf pans.

Notes

This recipe can be very forgiving. You can use all different types/kinds of flour for making this bread. To make white flour dough usually requires less water. Strong wheat flour can be used for onion bread.

I have employed the healthy water sauté cooking method that unveils the vegetables’ flavours, and releases the flavours of the olive oil as it is added last to the onion. Water-sautéing is one of my secrets to healthy cooking. This is the main reason why my vegan onion bread recipe is very light.

Zero Waste

It is very probable that stored onions sprout, especially in spring. Do not throw sprouted onions away; just make an onion bread and reduce food waste!

Wine and Food Pairing

Pair the perfect wine with this vegan onion bread and enjoy an exciting gastronomic experience!

If you wish to throw a wine party and have a glass of wine with friends, this vegan appetizer pairs well with red wines. Onion bread will surely be a hit at a wine party!
