0.5 cups

2 cups
garlic cloves
0.14 oz
grass without stems and seeds
1.75 oz
½ teaspoon

Work 350g of the flour, the yeast, sugar, lukewarm milk, and water into a sponge (thick batter). Let it sit for 15 minutes.

Butter the flower pots. Chop the onions, garlic, and grass into fine pieces. Braise the onions and garlic in the butter, adding the spices as you go. Finally, braise the grass with it for a short time. Let it cool, then stir in the eggs.

Knead the rest of the flour into the sponge. Next, knead the spice mixture into the yeast dough. Let it sit for another 15 minutes. Separate the dough and put it into the two flower pots. Let it sit for a further 20 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius.

Brush the surface of the bread with water, then sprinkle on the hemp seeds.

Bake the bread on the lowest rack for 40 minutes.
