I created this bread at the same time that I created the delicious Potato, Thyme and Turmeric bread; and wowzers this one is even better. Yum!

Caraway seeds have a delicious flavour that is definitely different. It is often that intriguing flavour that you notice in traditional eastern European rye bread. It has been years since I have enjoyed rye bread I am sad to say as I had to go gluten-free for serious health reasons back in 2008. If you suspect that you have a gluten-related problem then I recommend that you seek expert advice (this is a speciality area of mine so I am delighted to help you; I have written an e-book that can be found here).

Caraway seeds have many health benefits however in the quantities used here in this recipeĀ their main function is flavour but they may ease the digestive tract somewhat. Every little bit of goodness in cooking helps through what herbalists and nutritionists describe as synergism. This mean that the sum total action of the ingredients is greater than that of those alone. So what better way to add health benefits to your day than via your food; exactly how mother nature intended šŸ™‚

Yea… laugh all you like; it works!

This bread has no added fats or sugar, contains an abundance of healthy and natural fats, minerals, and fibre and most importantly it tastes great! I mean really great; I cannot stop eating it. So far toppings have included almond nut butter and smoked salmon with mango chutney so it works with a savoury as well as a sweet twist.
