Garbanzo Garlic Knots

Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1-1/2 cups bread flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 6 large (fresh) basil leaves, chopped

Directions

  1. Mix the yeast into the warm water and let sit until bubbly. About 5 minutes.
  2. Puree garbanzo beans with 1/4 cup water and the basil leaves.
  3. Mix the water/yeast with 2/3 of the garbanzo puree and set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours and salt. Then make an indent in the middle and pour in the wet ingredients.
  5. Mix together and then knead with your hands to form a smooth, elastic ball.
  6. Cover bowl with lightly oiled plastic wrap and let rise in a warm spot for 2 hours.
  7. Then divide ball into two — pack one away and use the other one to make 12 dough-knots.
  8. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. If you have a pizza stone, let it preheat. If not, a regular pan should do the trick.
  9. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Until golden.

For the garlic topping, combine 1 tablespoon minced garlic with 3 tablespoons olive oil. You can also add in a pinch of salt and pepper or to head to your garden and clip bits of every kind of herb growing out there to throw into the mix.

Note: To create the garlic knots — just take off sections of dough (about the size of two tablespoons, if that makes sense) and roll them into a snake shape. Then tie that snake in a knot. Set aside and continue with the rest of the dough.
