I've already made this rustic loaf with pine nuts a few times and not only is it easy to prepare and bake but absolutely delicious and satisfying. There is nothing like the aroma of freshly baked bread to stimulate the appetite and calm the mind. This all-purpose bread goes nicely with some butter, fills out pretty much any meal you can imagine and is wonderful for dunking into your favorite vegetable soup or curry. Lightly toast the cut slices for a few minutes and you have crust for a perfect sandwich — I'll be exploring that possibility soon — or breakfast toast to go with some eggs and hash browns if you please.
You may wish to include some olives and some chopped jalapeño, and I nearly did, but this time I was looking for a more subtle combination to serve as a platform for the sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts and herbs. Crisp on the outside, the moist and textured interior is accented by the firm crust. No matter how you serve it, earthy vibrance awaits you.
