Description

Frisella is a type of hard, dry bread from Southern Italy whose primary purpose is to be crumbled and folded into a salad that's very similar to panzanella--the drier the bread, the more flavorful juices it will be able to soak up. Here, homemade frisella is combined with fresh tomatoes and red onion, yogurt, balsamic, and seasonings, then allowed to sit for a short while (or longer) to let the bread soften and the flavors meld.

Ingredients

1 tablespoon yeast
60 milliliters warm water
4 tablespoons bran
10 grams corn starch
1/2 teaspoons salt
1 tomatoes
1 purple onion
fresh basil
ground black pepper
1 teaspoon low-fat plain yogurt
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

Directions

1Dissolve the dry yeast in the water.
2Place the bran in a bowl with the cornstarch and the salt.
3Add the yeast and the water and combine well until a thin batter forms.
4Place the batter in two rectangular parchment paper-lined loaf pans and set them aside to rise for 2 hours.
5Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
6Place the loaf pans in the oven and bake for 25 minutes.
7Remove the friselle bread from the loaf pans and broil for 2 minutes to brown the tops.
8Place the tomatoes and onions in a bowl with some torn basil leaves.
9Add the bread, broken into pieces, and the yogurt (or oil), plus a pinch of salt and black pepper and a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar.
10Set aside for approximately 15 minutes.
11Serve chilled but not cold. Add diced tuna, grilled tofu, or turkey for added protein.
