SeedsI wanted to bake a loaf using soy flour, and I also added some seeds: from top left: pumpkin, flax, sesame and sunflower seeds.


ChestnutsI also added some chestnuts, and especially the day after the bread had a pleasant aftertaste.


We ate this dark bread with a creamy soup the first day, and then with cheese and ham.
