“Souped-up” defined by the Miriam Webster Dictionary as “made greater in power and appeal”

Nothing says winter like a steaming bowl of soup. And nothing compliments a hearty soup better than a piece of toasted Sprout Seeded Sourdough drowned in Myrtleford butter, or maybe a chunk of baguette with a smear of Holy Goat Black Silk Cheese…oh! Oh! Oh! What about Toasted Good Loaf Pumpkin Bread with a drizzle of Salute Olive Oil and a sprinkle of Pyramid Hill Salt…

Two-minute Teff Bread


Teff is a gluten free grain, originally from Ethiopia, that grows faster than any other grain. It’s about 14% protein, helps stabilise blood sugar and is super easy to diges. Better than that, it is super versatile and super yummy with a nutty grainy taste like quinoa or millet. We stock Teff Flour from ‘Bob’s Red Mill’ you’ll find it in the “Make & Bake” section at the rear of the shop.

This bread takes NO TIME to whip up and cooks quickly. Any leftover wedges can be toasted the next day. Awesome with mashed avo, or as a quick gluten free pizza base. Courtesy of – Cookbook author and blogger Alexx writes about living the low tox life deliciously.
