Baguette (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)


Baguette
Gluten Free Dairy Free



Nothing can replace that delicious baguette with some dinners. You just need it to dip into your stews and soups on a chilly winter day. This bread brings that hearty feeling back to your family meal.



Bread is something that is missed most often once you start a gluten free lifestyle. As time goes the craving are less but they will never go away.



Nothing beats hot bread out of the oven smothered in butter (even if it is dairy free). Alone as a snack or to compliment any meal.



Nothing will impress your glutinous family and friends more than your freshly baked GF bread for dinner when they come to visit. They might even begin to request it.




Ingredients:


1 Tsp. Pink Himalayan Sea Salt

1 Tbsp. Sugar

2 Tsp. Xanthan Gum

2 Tbsp. Yeast

Sprinkle of Pepper

3 Tbsp. Avocado Oil (Plus some to brush on top of the baguette)

3 Egg Whites

2 Tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar

1 Cup Warm Water



Directions:

Activate your yeast by adding the sugar and yeast to the warm water. Once it has a nice set of froth on top it is ready. While you are waiting start to mix in your stand mixer the flour, salt, xanthan gum, and pepper. Add egg whites, oil, vinegar and activated yeast. Mix on medium until you have a nice sticky dough. Line your baguette pan (you really need to invest in one of these, the link to the exact one I own is below. I have tried baking sheets and they end up flat) with parchment paper and lightly spray with avocado oil. Spoon the dough onto each side using the same amount for each side. Shape it with a wet spatula or wet fingers (keep dipping it into the water to prevent the dough from sticking to it) after you have achieved your desired shape dip a knife into water and cut through the top a few times diagonally and brush the tops with avocado oil. Put in oven and allow to rise for one hour. Without removing it, start your oven and set for 350 degrees. KEEP THE BREAD IN THE OVEN DURING THE PREHEAT. Once it is up to 350 degrees it will take about 55-60 minutes to cook. You will have a beautiful golden light brown crust on the outside. Take out and allow it to cool for about 15 minutes before handling and cutting open. Feel free to make these in bulk and freeze some. To eat just take out and allow it to thaw, wrap in foil and reheat in the oven. Enjoy!
