Pistachio Onion Bread
Pistachio Onion Bread
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 packages active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm milk
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup pistachios, roughly chopped
  • 3/4 cup onion, finely chopped

Sift flour, salt and sugar into a large bowl.

Dissolve the yeast in 1/2 cup of the warm milk. Pour it into the middle of the flour together with the oil and rest of the milk.

Knead well until the dough is firm and blended into a smooth, springy ball (about 10 minutes.) Leave in a warm place to rise for about 2 hours.

Punch down, mix in walnuts and onions. Shape into 4 rounds. Leave on a greased baking sheet for about 45 minutes.

Bake at 400° for 45 minutes or until the loaves are nicely-browned and sound hollow when tapped  on the bottom.
