Jalapeno and Basil Bread

This time around for our HBin5 challange, I made the Mesquite Bread. Really, that is probably a misnomer, because, even though I looked high and low, I couldn't get my hands on any mesquite flour. I substituted WW and it worked fine. I imagine I lost some flavor, but all in all I thought the bread was quite good. Since cilantro is not my fav I substituted basil, fresh from the garden. The jalepenos were also right off the plant. I used two, and took out the seeds and veins. Great flavor, with just a little heat. This bread is definitely a make again. Go on over to Big Black Dogs and check out what the other bakers did with this challange.




Today I went down to the garden and picked some eggplant and okra. The rice cooker is loaded up with brown rice and now the eggplant, okra, and onions are in the oven roasting to be added to the rice. A little dressing of lemon juice, and balsamic...yum.



Till our next baking adventure...

Great looking loaf of bread! Nice call on substituting basil for cilantro too. I like cilantro but only once in a while and then I'm done with it.

I could not find the Mesquite Flour either and I heard it tastes and smells like fine chocolate. It's definitely on my ToTry List!

Your bread looks great. I'm busy in the garden, too. I made sandwiches with roasted eggplant, tomatoes, cheese and pesto.

I look forward to making this bread with mesquite flour but love your substitutions! Great thinking. And the loaf looks wonderful!
