  • 1 pkg. active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • Egg replacer equivalent to 2 eggs
  • 4 cups flour
  • Olive oil for brushing


•Mix the yeast and water in a large stainless steel bowl. Add the sugar, oil, and salt.
•Blend in the egg replacer and then the flour, adding just a little flour at a time to make a soft dough. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.
•Place the dough in an oiled bowl, turning the dough to oil all sides. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 2 hours. Punch the dough down and remove to a lightly floured surface.
•Divide the dough into 2 equal parts and re-divide each into 3 equal parts. The latter should be shaped into 11-inch-long strips. Braid the 3 strips into a loaf and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Repeat with the other 3 strips. Cover the loaves and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours.
•Brush the loaves with olive oil. Bake at 375°F for 35 minutes, or until done. Remove from the baking sheets and let cool on wire racks.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
