{Gluten-Free} Seeded Black Garlic Flat Bread for #BreadBakers

BreadBakers #BreadBakers is a group of bread loving bakers who get together once a month to bake bread with a common ingredient or theme. Follow our Pinterest board right here. Links are also updated each month on this home page.

We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme/ingredient. If you are a food blogger and would like to join us, just send Stacy an email with your blog to foodlustpeoplelove[at]gmail[dot]com.

Karen of Karen's Kitchen Stories is our hostess this month. And she chose GARLIC, in honor of National Garlic Day which is April 19th in the United States. So...she invited us to incorporate black garlic, white garlic, elephant garlic, smoked garlic; powdered, roasted, raw, crushed or whole into our bread creations!

My Garlic Bread...
If you've been following me for even a little while, you know how much I just adore garlic. I decided to use black garlic for this post. Click here to read an intro to black garlic.

I had initially wanted to make a gluten-free farmhouse loaf, but my gluten-free skills need some honing still. I'm getting better though.

  • 2 t active dry yeast
  • 1/3 C warm water
  • 1 T organic granulated sugar
  • 1/4 C olive oil
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1-1/2 C gluten-free flour + more if needed
  • 6 to 8 cloves of black garlic
  • 1 T black sesame seeds
  • 1 to 2 t black lava sea salt
  • 1 C shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • sesame oil for drizzling

Mix the yeast and sugar together in the warm water in a large mixing bowl. Set aside for 10 to 15 minutes to allow the yeast to dissolve and bloom.

Whisk the egg and olive oil into the yeast. Then gradually add the flour, mixing with a wooden spoon until you have a soft, elastic dough. Add more flour, if needed. Shape the dough into a ball, put it in a oiled bowl, cover with a cloth, and let rise in a warm spot until doubled in size, approximately 2 hours.

During the last 20 minutes of your rise, preheat the oven to 450°F. You can line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a pizza stone. I did the latter.

Roll the dough out until it's about 1/2" thick. Pull the edges up slightly to make a raised lip.

Mash the black garlic cloves and lay them on your dough, pressing them into the top slightly. Sprinkle with black sesame seeds and black lava salt.

Scatter shiitake slices over the bread and drizzle with olive oil.

Place in the oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes - until the bread is a nice golden brown.

Let cool on the stone for 5 minutes before slicing. Serve hot.


  1. Another recipe using black garlic. I think I need to lay my hands on some black garlic and make this soon!

  2. One of these days I'm going to have to find black garlic and give it a try! Very nice.

  3. I just love the look of the black garlic and I've been hearing great things about it. Thanks for including an info link for it. Your bread looks delicious!

  4. Now I have to try black garlic! Yum!

  5. Is black garlic easy to find at the grocery store or do you have to order it online or find a specialty store? I am so curious to try it.

  6. Wow another black garlic recipe. Never tried it before, but now I'm tempted to give it a try.

  7. If it weren't for this month's theme, I would not have learnt so much about the different types of garlic available in the world. Love your gluten free flatbread.

  8. I wanted to use black garlic but I can't find it anywhere, this looks lovely.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
