Easy Bread

This bread is a blend of whole wheat and white flour but if you like you could also make it with only white flour which would be a little less healthy. Even if your first bread making attempt isn’t stellar I urge you to keep practicing as the more you do it the easier it gets.
This bread freezes well if two loaves are too much for you or your family to use quickly enough for it not to go stale. The best way to freeze bread is to wait until the bread if fully cooled after baking and then wrap it well so no air can get in and pop it in the freezer. When you are ready to use the frozen bread you can pop it in the fridge or sometimes I just cut slices from the frozen bread and put them in the toaster.


ISKCON Chef Kurma Prabhu's take on Yeast

Question: "I was wondering about some of your recipes, some of them have yeast in it, I was wondering if this is acceptable to be offered to Krishna. I thought yeast is a living organism, just like mushroom is. Please forgive my ignorance and help me understand this."

Kurma: "Thanks for your letter. Yeast is not a traditional ingredient in Vaishnava cookery, yet we do prepare and offer to Krishna fermented things like khamir poori, dosa, idli, jalebis etc. These are all fermented naturally, with the help of airborne yeasts.

"Yes, yeast could be compared with mushrooms. However, it was not specifically banned by our founder Srila Prabhupada (like meat, fish, eggs, garlic, onion, alcohol are). When he first arrived from India, Prabhupada tasted western yeast-risen breads, but he said he found them dry and tasteless, and much preferred his hot, freshly cooked unleavened chapatis."

Yeast and Krishna Consciousness

Without expressing myself quite as strongly as Anonymous, it is my understanding that fermented products are not part of a Krishna conscious diet, being tamasic; thus yeast and vinegar are avoided.

Easy Bread

I am sorry, but I don't like your bread because you are using yeast. Yeast has smell of a toilet and is a product 100% in tama guna. How Lord Krishna can eat something like that? Please give some better recipe.
