“This is very good lightly toasted for BLT's or made into hamburger buns! If you want to up the nutritional value of the bread, just substitute vegetable juice cocktail for tomato juice. Want a zippier bread? Try the spicy vegetable juice cocktail!” - by Esther Nelson
Original recipe yields 2 round medium loaves
- Dissolve yeast in 1 cup warm water, set aside.
- In large bowl; mix starter and tomato juice. Add yeast mixture, salt, sugar and stir well.
- Add 1 cup of flour at a time and beat well to develop the gluten. When a stiff dough forms, turn out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, adding the last 1 cup of flour as you go.
- Turn into greased bowl and lightly grease top, cover with towel and place in draft free area for 2 hours. Will double in bulk.
- Punch down and divide dough in two, form into rounds and place each on a baking sheet that has been sprinkled generously with cornmeal.
- Let rise 1/2 hour, rub top lightly with flour and slash with sharp knife. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C ) for 45-60 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned when checked.
- For a soft crust, cool under a clean dishtowel. For a harder European type crust, cool without.

"This bread is SUPER!!! I've made it several times, and it always comes out great. I use V-8 juice, as suggested, and add 1/2 cup chopped sundried tomatoes, 3 or 4 minced cloves of garlic, and 1 1/2 ts..." See morep dried basil. YUM!! I have a friend who begs me for a loaf of this every week. Thanks for a GREAT recipe!"
"This bread makes fabulous grilled cheese! I left out the yeast and used a little extra starter and had no problems. I wish I could give 6 stars =)..." See more"
"pretty darned good! It's a simple recipie that turns out nice, but I added a few extra bits to make it a little more interesting. I mixed in some oregano, chopped sundried tomatoes, and diced peppe..." See morer-jack cheese bits before the flour. Plus, I used half wheat/half white flour, to make it more wholesome. Delicious & very pretty color! It was devoured & commended at the dinner party I attended!"
