Our Sommelier Suggests
What type of bread goes well with a charcuterie board?
What is the perfect complement for cheese boards?
Forget the crackers. It’s onion bread time! Serve sliced onion bread on the side with your boards. All you need now is a bold and well-structured wine! I recommend a full-bodied white like Vilana, the white queen of the Greek island of Crete. Crete has thousands and thousands years of history as the island is the centre of Europe's most ancient civilisation, the Minoans. Vilana is the way to savour the history of the island and trace connections between ancient and modern experience. A sip of this quintessentially Cretan wine speaks of the mountains of the island, wild jasmine, citrus orchards, precious Cretan herbs, sea and fresh country air.
- I used 8x2.5 inches bread loaf pans.
- 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.
Stored onions sprout, especially in spring. Do not throw sprouted onions away; just make onion bread and reduce food waste!
