Vegan Herbed Sesame & Cumin Seeds Braided Bread

I dont bother to make fresh bread loaves at home..I was quite familiar with bread baking nowadays at home and its quite like a game for me to make different variations in my home made breads, this time i tried this braided bread by adding sesame seeds and cumin seeds to give a zing to my usual herbed bread..This braided bread goes terrible prefect along with a cheese spread when served with a bowl of comforting warm soup..My family enjoyed each bite of this scrumptious bread and almost half of the bread vanished when they were still warm with cheese spread, we loved that much...Cumin seeds add a fabulous flavor to this bread and the dried parsley leaves i used in this bread goes awesome along with sesame and cumin seeds combo..I can say that this bread is also vegan as i used olive oil to prepare this bread and its completely egg free, a prefect bread even for vegetarian & vegan friends...

Herbed Sesame & Cumin Braided Bread

3cups Bread flour/All purpose flour
2tbsp Sesame seeds
1tbsp Cumin seeds
1tbsp Active dry yeast
1cup Luke warm water
1/4cup Olive oil
1tsp Salt
1/2tsp Sugar
1tbsp Dry parsley leaves

Add the active dry yeast to the luke warm water with sugar and salt, let them sit in a warm place for 5minutes, until the yeast turns foamy..Meanwhile mix together the bread flour, cumin seeds, sesame seeds, dry parsley leaves in a large bowl, add gradually the foamy yeast with olive oil and turn everything as soft and stiff dough..Grease a bowl and place the dough, let it sit for two hour in a warm place..

Preheat the oven to 350F,line a baking sheet over a baking tray, just grease slightly the baking sheet with olive oil..punch the dough down,divide them into 3 portions... roll them well to form as smooth balls..Roll each ball as thin ropes..braid the ropes together, press the dough nicely the both ends..Place the braided loaf on a greased baking sheet, brush them simply with olive oil....Bake them for 25-30 minutes until the crust turns brown..Let them cool for few minutes before serving...

Enjoy with any spread!!
