  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 pinch sugar
  • 80 gr fresh yeast
  • 400 gr frozen spinach (mostly drained)
  • 6 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp salt, pepper
  • 0.5 tsp cayenne, granulated garlic
  • 2 onion
  • 1 egg (for egg-wash)

  1. Prepare a large mixing bowl or a stand mixer. Add the warm water, the pinch of sugar and the fresh yeast. Mix them and let the yeast rise.
  2. Mix the spinach with the seasoning.
  3. When the yeast is ready (foam-ish) add the spinach and the flour. If you use stand mixer, let it mix/knead, if you do is with your hands, knead the dough for about 3-5 minutes.
  4. After kneading, let the dough rest in a warm place for about 30 minutes.
  5. In the meanwhile peel and dice the onion, caramelize it on a little oil.

  7. When the dough doubled/tripled, cut it into halves and roll them out. Spread the caramelized onion on the doughs, Fold the ends of the shorter sides and roll them up, it’ll look like a baguette or a small loaf.
  8. Put the loaves to the pan, cut the top of them a little (don’t cut it deep!), brush them with the egg wash and add the sunflower seeds.
