Quick Focaccia

Vegetable Lentil Soup

Start Cooking

Prepare the Focaccia

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Pour warm water into a 9x13 pan. Shake on top the yeast and mix to dissolve. Next, mix in the egg and olive oil.

  3. Add in the flour and salt and mix till combined. 

  4. Drizzle a little more olive oil onto the pan and over the dough. Spread the dough out to cover the bottom of the pan. Cover the pan and let sit five to 10 minutes.

  5. Drizzle the top of the dough with olive oil and spread on toppings like garlic, sundried tomatoes, and parsley. Use tips of fingers to gently press into dough to create bubbles.

  6. Bake uncovered for 18 to 20 minutes. Allow to cool a bit and slice into 12 pieces.

Prepare the Vegetable Lentil Soup

  1. Place a pot on medium heat. Sauté the diced vegetables and garlic in olive oil for about five minutes. Add in the lentils and spices. Cook another one to two minutes. 

  2. Pour in the water and cover. Bring to a boil then lower to a simmer. Let cook two hours or until the lentils are soft. The soup will reduce. Once finished, taste and add more salt if needed.

    Can cassava flour be used instead of regular flour?

    I made the focaccia recipe as written. The bread stuck to the pan and was hard to remove. Any suggestions?

    Hi! Maybe you didn’t drizzle enough oil around the pan before pressing the dough into it? The pan I used here may also be non stick but I’ve done it with other pans with no issue. Next time just drizzle more oil or you can use parchment and it definitely won’t stick. Hope that helps!

    Can I use spelt flour in the focaccia ? (I have white spelt and 80%)

    Yes but white spelt may need a bit more flour. The 80% probably same amount is good
