I couldn’t resist baking up a loaf of Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Hearty Irish Soda Bread.
A favourite of mine to accompany a hot bowl of soup on a cold and blustery day.
The Irish Soda Bread recipe originates from the Canadian Living Step By Step Cookbook…spying this recipe had me craving a slice…now I just needed a bowl of soup!
I just so happened to have most of the ingredients…a partly used carton of vegetable stock and leeks were already in my refrigerator, however, I switched up the potato with sweet potato.
Three simple ingredients = a quick, easy, nutritious soup!
With a soup recipe to try…I had the perfect excuse to bake a loaf of Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Hearty Irish Soda Bread! Click here for Canadian Living’s original recipe.

Of course, I made a few adaptions:
Buttermilk replacement: 1 1/2 cups of buttermilk with Natur-a Soy Beverage (for a soy free version use Natur-a Rice Beverage) mixed with 1 1/2 tbsp white vinegar.
Flour replacement: I used 2 cups of whole wheat flour and 1 cup of unbleached all-purpose flour.
Flaxseed replacement: I used and equal amount of flaxmeal and I sprinkled the top with flaxmeal instead of the unbleached all-purpose flour.
Tip: The dough is very sticky when you mix the wet with the dry ingredients…I mean very sticky
I encourage you to make sure you really dust with flour the area that you will be kneading the dough, as well as, have a pile of flour at your finger tips to dust the top of the dough in between kneading to reduce the amount of stickiness. The picture above shows my completed kneading of the dough with the extra flour to the side.
Delicious toasted with jam, honey or a spread of Vegan Becel Margarine.
P.S. Posting my favourite winter soup soon.
What is your favourite winter soup…what do you like to accompany it?
