Title: Spinach bread
Yield: 4 Servings
1 c Water
2 c (tightly packed) cleaned and
Stemmed fresh spinach
4 tb Plus 1 teaspoon butter
2 Envelopes (1/4-ounce) active
1 Egg, beaten
1 tb Sugar
1 ts Salt
1/8 ts Freshly ground black pepper
3 3/4 c Flour
1 tb Kosher salt
1 tb Grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Place the water and spinach in a
saucepan. Wilt the spinach, pressing down the spinach with the back
of a spoon, about 45 seconds. Drain the spinach, squeezing out the
spinach tightly and reserve the liquid. Pour the liquid into a mixing
bowl with 4 tablespoons of the butter. The butter will melt and cool
the liquid to 110 degrees F. Stir in the yeast and dissolve the
yeast. Add the beaten egg, sugar, salt, and black pepper. Finely chop
the spinach and add to the yeast mixture. Add the flour and mix well
with a wooden spoon until the dough comes away from the sides of the
bowl. Using your hands, form the dough into a ball. Lightly oil a
bowl. Place the dough in the bowl and turn the dough once. Cover the
dough with plastic wrap and place in a warm, draft-free place until
the dough doubles in size, about 1 hour. Butter 6 over-sized muffin
tins. Invert the dough onto a floured surface and punch it down with
your fist. Fold each side in and tuck the ends into the center.
Repeat. Put the dough, seam side down and divide the dough into 6 six
equal portions. Using your hand, gently roll the dough into a ball.
Place the rolls in the prepared pan. Sprinkle the rolls with kosher
salt and cheese. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until
in doubled in size, about 1 hour. Bake the rolls for about 30
minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and place on a
wire rack to cool before removing from the pan.
Yield: 6 oversized muffin rolls
