Why I Love This Recipe

Our family loves Italian food. With the Italian food we enjoy toasted French bread that we spread with roasted garlic. This gluten free version of French bread is very close to the "real thing".

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 c. very warm water (if water has any sting to the touch, it's too hot)
1-3 T. sugar (your choice of sweetness)
1 1/2 t. sea salt
2 T. olive oil (oil or butter of your choice)
1/2 c. + 1 T. liquid egg whites
2 T. active dry yeast
2 c. white rice flour
1 c. tapioca flour
1 T. zanthum gum
1 t. vinegar


In bowl of stand mixer, pour in very warm water. With mixer on low, add sugar, salt, olive oil, and egg whites. Mix well. Add yeast, and mix well. Turn mixer off, add flours and zanthum gum and stir until moistened. Turn mixer on low, add vinegar. Turn to high and beat well for a couple of minutes. Use a French bread pan to bake the bread (you can use a regular bread pan, but it will not have the right shape). Line the bread pan with parchment paper. Let bread rise 45-60 minutes. Bake in an oven preheated to 400 F for 45 minutes. Immediately remove bread to wire rack to cool.
