Based on a recipe in "Artisan Breads Every Day" by Peter Reinhart, this overnight rising bread is made with cooked wild rice and caramelized onions added to the dough.
Slightly overcooked wild rice draining - luckily, wild rice is very forgiving and doesn't turn to mush if overcooked.
The cooked wild rice and caramelized onion in the dough are both attractive and fragrant. This is how the dough looked after its overnight rise.
Shaped, placed in a brown rice floured brotform and proofed
Ready to bake. The recipe called for a milk wash to shine the crust but I didn't want to lose all the decorative lines from the brotform. I tried (and failed) to paint a design with the milk. Of course it simply puddled....
The aroma is intoxicating!
We served the bread with barbecued pork shoulder, dandelion greens and grilled red peppers. Once again, we ate like kings.
