Olive and Tomato Whole Wheat Focaccia (vegan) / Focaccia od integralnog brašna sa maslinama i rajčicama (veganska)

I haven’t baked any focaccias in a while, but they are such an easy and quick carb option that I threw this one together on the spur of the moment. They are awesome vessels for a delicious spread of your choice and pair really well with any kind of soups, stews and even salads.

METHOD:

Lightly grease a square baking pan and line it with parchment paper, then grease the parchment paper with remaining olive oil. I was out of parchment paper and didn’t use any and that was a big mistake, as all the delicious browned bits remained stuck to the pan, boo!

Prepare the dough by whisking together flour, yeast, sugar salt, rosemary and oregano. I prefer using rosemary ground into a fine powder, so it’s not that much in your face, but that’s merely a personal preference. Add in olive oil and water then stir vigorously for about a minute or two to fully combine. The dough will be super sticky and runny and it will seem like there’s no chance of it ever coming together, but worry not. Transfer the dough to a prepared baking pan, even out with a spatula, then cover and allow it to sit in a warm room for an hour.

Meanwhile, cut your olives and tomatoes in half and preheat the oven to 200°C. After the dough has risen, top it with olives, tomatoes, oregano, black pepper and salt. Drizzle everything with olive oil, then bake for 20-25 minutes, until fragrant and golden brown on top.

Allow the focaccia to rest for about five minutes in its pan before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Serve it warm or at room temperature.

Nisam već neko vrijeme ispekla neku focacciu, ali su one tako brza i jednostavna verzija ugljikohidrata da sam ovu smućkala samo onako na brzinu i nimalo planski. Focaccie su mi super kao podloga za bilo kakve fine namaze, ali odlično se mogu upariti i sa nekom juhicom, varivom, pa čak i salatom.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1 focacciu / 11,94 kn)

Za tijesto:

1 šalica glatkog brašna (0,50 kn)

1 šalica integralnog brašna (0,75 kn)

2 žličice suhog kvasca (2,00 kn)

1 žlica šećera (0,10 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice mljevenog sušenog ružmarina (0,25 kn)

½ žličice sušenog origana (0,25 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

1 šalica tople vode (–)

Za posipanje:

¼ šalice zelenih maslina bez koštica (3,00 kn)

½ šalice cherry rajčica (3,00 kn)

1 žličica sušenog origana (0,50 kn)

½ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1 žlica maslinovog ulja (0,33 kn)

Dodatno:

1 žlica maslinovog ulja za namastiti protvan (0,33 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Lagano namastite četvrtasti protvan i obložite ga papirom za pečenje. Onda dobro namastite i sam papir sa preostalim uljem. Meni je ponestalo papira za pečenje pa sam preskočila ovaj korak, ali je to na kraju ispala velika greška jer mi je sva ona fina hrskava korica od focaccie ostala zalijepljena na protvanu, buuu!

Tijesto pripremite tako da pomiješate skupa oba brašna, kvasac, šećer, sol, ružmarin i origano. Meni je draže koristiti sušeni ružmarin koji sam još samljela u fini prah jer onda nekako nije preintenzivan kada se zagrize u komadić, ali vi napravite kako vama odgovara. U smjesu dodajte maslinovo ulje i vodu, pa energično miješajte jedno minutu-dvije da se sve sjedini. Tijesto će biti jako ljepljivo i činiti se kao da nema šanse da od toga svega ispadne kruh, ali budite bez brige jer će vam sve na kraju dobro ispasti. Tijesto preselite u pripremljeni protvan, poravnajte špatulom, pokrijte protvan i ostavite da se tijesto diže u toploj prostoriji sat vremena.

U međuvremenu raspolovite masline i cherry rajčice, a pećnicu zagrijte na 200°C. Kada se tijesto dignulo, po njemu rasporedite masline, rajčice, origano, papar i sol. Sve pokapajte sa još malo maslinovog ulja, te stavite peći na 20-25 minuta, dok focaccia ne zamiriši i ne bude lijepe zlatno-smeđe boje.

Ostavite focacciu da oko pet minuta odmara u protvanu, te ju onda preselite na rešetku i ohladite. Poslužite ju toplu ili na sobnoj temperaturi.
