No Knead Rustic Bread


  • 3 cups warm water
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast 
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 6 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons sea salt


  1. Mix water, yeast, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Let sit for about five minutes until bubbly.
  2. Add flour and salt. Mix until combined into a soft dough. The dough should be slightly sticky to touch, but not so much that much comes off your hands.
  3. Cover loosely with plastic warp and a kitchen towel. Let it rise for one to three hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit
  5. Fill a baking dish with two inches of water and place on bottom rack in oven to heat up for a crusty bread.
  6. Sprinkle flour on the counter, turn out dough, fold on itself, divide in half and form it into two balls. Don’t knead or handle it more than you need to. Add a little flour if too sticky.
  7. Cut a X shape on top of the balls with a sharp knife.
  8. Place on a cookie sheet.
  9. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until internal temperature is 190 degrees Fahrenheit.
  10. Let cool for about 30 minutes before slicing.

I was visiting one of my closest friends in town and she told me her husband had been making black bean tempeh tacos and they just loved them. I was intrigued as I’ve never used crumbled tempeh as a taco meat substitute but it definitely works! I made my own recipe, which includes your very own taco-seasoning blend! I hope you enjoy it as it is very tasty!
