View Full Version : Onion bread question
09-30-2006, 04:58 PM
I finally have all the ingredients to make the famous onion bread. Yay! Can't wait to finally try it! Just got a couple of questions first.
There's no water at all in the recipe, right (i.e. no soaking of the flax seeds)? Also, I'm tempted to replace at least part of the oil with avocado. Anybody tried that before?
I'm planning on having my first batch of eggplant bacon going too so that I can have BLT on onion bread... Sounds so yum!;)
I didn't use water. Not sure about dehydrated avocado ... If you don't want so much oil why not just use less. There may be some who have dehydrated avo past just heating it. If so they will surely speak up.
I have had many wonderful experiences with this recipe and have never made it exactly as is. So never be afraid to experiment. Let us know how it turns out.

Thanks for your reply. So I mixed some avocado, 1 tbs olive oil and water in the FP until I got the same amount as the oil called for in the original recipe and it worked beautifully!
I did half the recipe with avo and the other half without any oil and more seeds like Mel's. Whereas the no-oil version was more like a cracker, the avo one was more moist and bread-like. Both were awesome though! This has just opened a bunch of new possibilities using avo as substitute for oil. I'm a happy camper! Yay! :)
Glad you liked it and now have two new recipes, one for crackers and the other for bread your way. I have made this many times with various changes and never ended up with bread. Guess we just weren't looking for bread. Will find the link to a post I made with all the particulars. Who knows you might be looking for one of the things we found.

Not sure how avocado would work, but I've used a scant 1/4 cup oil in this onion bread recipe (the one posted here) and Rawvolution's onion bread recipe (both very similar) and they turn out just fine.
I also use grape seed oil, which is mild in flavor.

Thanks Doe for the thread! You had me laughing over your onion bread experiments...
Actually, to call my version "bread" was a bit of an overstatement I guess...Let's just say some of it turned out nice and moist. However, as I don't have a very effective dehydrator (it's hand-made with the heat at the bottom and no fan), some parts of the bread took wayyyyyy too long to dehydrate so they fermented. (Snif!) I was able to salvage some of it though and it did taste great. I guess next time, I'll spread the dough thinner. Also, Don is in the process of trying to make the dehydrator more efficient (insulating it and adding a fan) so hopefully I can have more success in my future experiments. (Fingers crossed!)
