Wheat Belly Focaccia Bread
This recipe provides an unusually sturdy focaccia bread
suitable for a variety of dishes. I used it to make a Reuben sandwich, for
instance: a thick layer of corned beef topped with sauerkraut and
Thousand Island dressing sandwiched between two pieces of this focaccia
Shape this focaccia dough into whatever shape suits
your recipes. I usually make two focaccias, each approximately three inches
wide by six inches long and ½-¾ inches deep, to use as the two
bread slices to sandwich ingredients between. However, this recipe yields
such an incredibly filling bread that the two slices can easily be cut in
half to yield two very satisfying sandwiches to serve two.
Spread focaccia bread with pesto or mustard, lay
smoked turkey, corned beef, pastrami, or other meat in between, some cheese,
and you have a delicious and filling sandwich.
2 cups almond meal
1 cup shredded mozzarella or other cheese
1 teaspoon sea salt
1½ teaspoons dried rosemary
1½ teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ cup sundried tomatoes, finely sliced
2 large eggs, separated
3 tablespoons extra-virgin oil
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In food chopper or food processor, pulse shredded cheese
until reduced to small granule-sized consistency, similar to couscous.
In medium bowl, combine almond meal, cheese, sea salt,
rosemary, oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, and sundried tomatoes and mix
together. Set aside.
With electric mixer, whip egg whites until stiff.
Blend in egg yolks and 2 tablespoons olive oil at low speed. Pour egg
mixture into almond meal mixture and mix together.
Divide dough in two and form into desired shape by hand.
Smooth edges with knife or spoon. (You may need to place your knife or spoon
under hot running water to help mold the dough.)
Bake for 15 minutes. Remove and take blunt handle of
spoon or other small rounded instrument and make small depressions in the
surface every inch or so. Brush surface with remaining olive oil and sprinkle
some sea salt on top. Return to oven additional 15 minutes.
