Gluten-Free Sandwich Bread

This sandwich bread will not disappoint! The custom blend of gluten-free flour yields a soft and tender bread, yet it's sturdy enough to hold up to any sandwich filling.

Sandwich bread is the best choice. The perfect size, texture and flavour complements (rather than competing with!) Your fillings. It can be hard to find a sandwich bread that is both vegan and gluten free.

Until now! This gluten-free bread is a great sandwich bread, and it also contains no wheat, milk, butter or eggs. Instead of buying gluten-free flour from the store, I have created a special mixture that will yield the perfect bread for sandwiches.

There are some special ingredients in this recipe. However, each of them plays an important role, so don't change anything!

Why You Will Love This Gluten-Free Sandwich bread Recipe

  • Pillowy soft. This recipe makes a soft, tender loaf of gluten-free bread that is perfect for sandwich fillings.
  • Easy. If you are new to baking, yeast breads can be challenging to master. This basic sandwich bread is a good place to begin.
  • Vegan and gluten-free. This sandwich bread is gluten-free and vegan. Many gluten-free recipes rely on eggs to give them structure. (Learn More: Is Yeast vegan?)

Notes on Ingredients

Scroll to the bottom of the recipe card for the ingredients quantities and the recipe instructions.

  • Gluten free oats Not all oats contain gluten, because some are processed with the same equipment that wheat. Be sure to use oats that are certified gluten-free.
  • Psyllium Husk -- This is a binder which adds some flexibility to the dough.
  • Soymilk- Because soy milk is higher in protein than other plant milks it's the one I chose for this gluten-free bread. Make sure it's unflavored and unsweetened.
  • Brown Rice Flour- This gives a slightly nutty taste reminiscent of whole grain sandwich bread.
  • Potato starch and tapioca Starch These starches help improve the texture and elasticity of the dough.
  • Instant yeast -- If you've had your yeast in the pantry for some time, make sure it isn't expired. How to test your yeast to make sure it is still good.
  • salt
  • Baking Powder -- Baking powder is an essential ingredient in quick breads. We add it to our sandwich bread as a boost.
  • Maple Syrup – Sandwich bread is usually sweetened with maple syrup.
  • Olive Oil
  • Apple Cider Vinegar -- White vinegar will also work if you only have that on hand.

What is a Pullman Pan?

Pullman pans are loaf pans with a sliding cover. The cover is designed to produce perfectly square bread pieces, because the bread bakes while the lid is on. The tight-fitting cover and straight sides produce bread with a fine, uniform crumb. Pullman pans are used for this gluten-free bread because of their tall, straight sides. The cover is not needed, and the loaf will have a domed top.

How to make gluten-free sandwich bread

  • Make flour from oats. The oats should be processed in a high-speed blender until they are resembled flour.
  • Thicken the psyllium. In a small measuring cup or bowl, warm the soymilk and whisk in the psyllium. Set aside for thickening.
  • Combine the dry ingredients. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer with a hook attachment, stir the brown rice flour and oats flour. Add the potato starch, the tapioca, the tapioca, the baking powder, the salt, and the baking powder. Mix again. Add the instant Yeast.
  • Combine wet and dried ingredients. Mix the psyllium, maple syrup and olive oil into the flour mix on low speed, until all the dry ingredients have been incorporated. As needed, scrape the bowl. After the flour has been incorporated, turn the mixer up to medium low and mix for five minutes.
  • Rest. Let the dough rest in the bowl for 10 minutes.
  • Knead. Turn out the dough onto a lightly-floured surface. Gently knead the dough a few more times to form a smooth, round shape. The dough should be rolled into a rectangle the same size as the bread pan. Roll the dough into the log shape, tucking the ends underneath, and then place it in a Pullman pan.
  • Rise. Cover the dough with a towel and let it rise in a warm area for an hour or so, until it doubles in size.
  • Prepare. While your oven is heating up to 400oF, place a pan of ice water on the bottom shelf.
  • Bake. Place the loaf pan into the oven that has been preheated. Bake for 30 minutes at 375oF. Remove the water pan and continue baking for 20-30 minutes or until the temperature inside reaches 205oF.
  • Cool. Cool the loaf for at least four hours before cutting it.

Tips for Success

  • Do not use a normal bread pan. I strongly recommend that you use a Pullman Pan for this recipe. Regular loaf pans have shorter sides, which won't support the bread as it bakes and rises. I use a Pullman 1-pound loaf pan which measures 8.38 x 4.88 x 4.45 inches on the exterior and 7.5 x 4.88 x 4.44 inches on the interior.
  • Allow it to cool down completely. It is best to let it cool overnight! This gluten-free sandwich loaf will become gummy if you cut into it too soon.
  • Soften the crust. You can soften the crust of your bread by placing it in a bread bag.

Serving Suggestions

This gluten-free bread can be used for anything! Try it with a classic PB&J or a vegan BLT or smashed avocado and chickpea sandwich. You can also use it for:

  • Vegan Pumpkin French toast
  • Avocado Toast
  • Overnight Baked French Toast Casserole
  • Avocado Smash Toast and Sriracha Poached eggs

How to store

The bread tastes best when it is freshly sliced. It will keep fresh at room temperature for up to 2-3 days in an airtight bag or container.

Can I freeze this recipe?

Slice the loaf after it has cooled. Wrap the loaf in two layers plastic wrap and then place it into a freezer bag. Freeze up to two months. Remove the bread from your freezer and place it on the counter for a few minutes until it is no longer frozen.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free oats 144 grams
  • 3 tablespoons psyllium husk 18 grams
  • 1 3/4 cups + 1 tablespoon soy milk 435 ml
  • 1 cup brown rice flour 160 grams
  • 6 tablespoons potato starch 72 grams
  • 6 tablespoons tapioca starch 60 grams
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Instant yeast
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

Instructions

  • Add the gluten-free oatmeal to a high-speed blender. Process them until they look like flour. You can leave a few larger oat pieces in the flour.
  • The soy milk should be heated to 110oF/43oC. In a small measuring cup or bowl, combine the psyllium with the soymilk. Mix well, and then set aside. The mixture will start to thicken, and look like runny oatmeal.
  • In the bowl of an electric stand mixer with the hook attachment, combine the brown rice flour and oats flour. Add the potato starch, the tapioca flour, the baking powder, and the salt. Mix until well combined. Add the instant yeast to the mixture and stir again.
  • Add the maple syrup, vinegar, olive oil, and psyllium to the flour mix. Stir at low speed until all the dry ingredients have been incorporated. It may be necessary to scrape the bowl down a few more times. Once the flour has been incorporated, turn the mixer up to medium-low and mix for five minutes.
  • Allow the dough to rest in the bowl for 10 minutes after the mixing time is over.
  • Turn out the dough onto a lightly-floured surface. Gently knead the dough a few more times to form a smooth, round shape. The dough should be rolled out to a rectangle the same width as your pan. Roll the dough into a long log and tuck the ends underneath. Place it in a Pullman pan.
  • Cover the dough with a towel and let it rise in a warm area for an hour, or until it doubles in size.
  • Put a pan filled with water in the bottom of your oven. Pre-heat the oven to 400oF/204oC.
  • Place the dough in the oven once it has risen. Reduce the temperature immediately to 375oF/190oC. Steam the oven for 30 minutes at 375oF/190oC (do NOT open the door). Remove the steam pan, and continue baking for 20-30 more minutes at 375oF/190oC. Instant read thermometers should show a final temperature of at least 205oF/96oC.
  • It will take at least 4 hours to cool the bread completely. It is best to let the loaf cool overnight. The inside of the bread will become gummy if you cut it too early. Place your bread in a bag with a lid if it feels too crispy on the outside. The outside will soften.

Notes

How to store This bread tastes best when it is freshly sliced. However, it can be stored at room temperature for up to 2-3 days in an airtight bag or container.
Slice the loaf after it has cooled. Wrap the loaf in two layers plastic wrap and then place it into a freezer bag. Freeze up to two months. Remove the bread from your freezer and place it on the counter for a few minutes until it is no longer frozen.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the advantages of a plant based diet?

Plant-based diets can provide many benefits, including improved heart health and digestive health, higher energy levels, reduced stress hormones, greater environmental protection, and increased energy. Soy-based protein is made from legumes, beans and whole grains. It has higher fiber and lower levels of saturated fat than animal proteins. Plant-based diets provide vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other beneficial compounds that can help protect against cell damage from inflammation and oxidative damage which can lead to chronic illnesses such as heart disease and cancer. Eating more fruits and vegetables can also increase fiber intake, which helps feed gut bacteria and promotes digestive health. Research shows that a plant based diet may be able to improve moods by reducing stress hormones. Additionally, transitioning away from animal proteins is gaining popularity as an alternative way to combat environmental damage caused by factory farming.


Can I eat Chicken on a Plant-Based Diet?

Yes, it is not possible to eat chicken while on a plant based diet. A plant-based diet prohibits the consumption of all animal products, such as poultry and fish. There are many vegan alternatives that can replace traditional meat-centric dishes. They have the same texture and flavor, however. Many soy-based meats, such as seitan (wheat Gluten), tempeh(fermented soybeans), mock duck (made from mushrooms), can be mimicked in flavor to traditional meats. Vegetarian burgers made of black beans, quinoa and other legumes can be very similar to traditional beef burgers. Additionally, coconut bacon strips or eggplant bacon bits; tofu mayo; veggie hot dogs made with seasoned textured soy protein; and faux chicken strips from wheat gluten offer tasty alternatives that do not require animal products.


What happens if I stop eating meat?

You will notice changes in your body when you stop eating meat. Your diet could be more fiber-rich and less saturated than if you switched from animal to plant protein. This could improve heart health as well as your digestive health. You may also notice an increase in energy due to a more efficient digestion and elimination of inflammatory food like animal proteins. The ability to reduce stress hormones caused by excessive animal protein consumption may make your moods more stable. It is becoming more popular to switch to a plant-based diet to reduce environmental damage from factory farming.


Statistics

  • In the United States, poor-quality diet is the most significant predictor of early death, according to an article published in the May 2017 Journal of Geriatric Cardiology. (everydayhealth.com)
  • In fact, according to research published in the going plant-based can cut grocery bills by $750 a year per person, Journal of Hunger & Environmental Nutrition. (forksoverknives.com)

How To

How can you make the transition to a plant based diet without feeling overwhelmed?

Transitioning to a plantbased diet can seem daunting at first. However, proper education and preparation will make it easier. Begin slowly, taking baby steps, and gradually incorporating the changes necessary to your diet. Whole foods are healthier than processed replacements and provide more nutrition.

You can get the best results from meal planning and meal prep if you are dedicated. Map out your meals in advance to plan what you will need to buy and how long to prepare each dish. The best kitchen appliances, such as multi-cookers or slow cookers, can make it easier to use. Batch cooking means you can have multiple meals ready in a single go.

Do not be afraid to experiment with new flavors. Different cuisines can offer a variety in your vegan diet. Think Chinese tofu and Indian curries. Aim to create a grocery list based on recipes instead of relying on impulse shopping at the grocery store. With the right ingredients and preparation tips, making the switch will become easier over time!
