|White sponge fed
with whole wheat flour
(hiziki or nori)
|Pumpkin seed garnish
|| 410 F
• Roast pumpkin in the oven until tender and scoop out flesh.
• Build 2500gm sour-dough with 1250 ml of water at 30° C and 1250 gm whole wheat flour 8 hours before mixing. We use a white starter (levain) for this.
• Mix all ingredients to 90 per cent development except the seaweed. Adjust water as needed for medium hydration.
• Split dough into 2 and add seaweed to one half. Reserve a little for garnish. If using nori, slice it chiffonade style into thin strips. (Seaweed can be found in Asian grocery stores or the Asian foods isle in most supermarkets.)
• Rest for 40 mins and de-gas. Rest for another 10-20 minutes and divide. After a short intermediate proof, form loaves (batarde shape) @ 700 gm or buns @ 75 gm.
• Proof and cut. Eggwash if desired.
• Garnish seaweed loves with remainder seaweed and non seaweed loaves with pumpkin seeds.
• Bake with steam at 210° C.
• (If gluten is not available increase flour by 170 gm)
