Gluten-Free "Rye" Bread (dairy free, corn-free, nut-free)

(Fresh "fake" rye bread, fresh sprouted alfalfa sprouts(always have something sprouting here),fresh garden tomatoes. I dressed it with coconut yogurt ranch dressing we make. A couple homemade pickles to finish the plate. Abby used hummus and no tomato!)
Easy one.

I simply used my favorite gluten free sandwich bread for the bread machine recipe and made the following changes-

Substitute 1-2 cups of buckwheat for 1-2 cups of your normal gluten free flour.(this loaf was a 50/50 blend)

1 teaspoon fresh ground caraway seeds
1 teaspoon dill weed
1 teaspoon fresh ground yellow mustard seed

Substitute 1/4 cup pickle juice for an equal amount of water or milk in the recipe (I have recently posted a recipe for refrigerator pickle recipe- I used that juice)

I also used some maple syrup for some of the sugar(thought it would offer a richness since we use grade B Maple syrup)

Follow your recipe.

I am a HUGE fan of all things rye, unfortunately with 2 gluten free in the family it isn't something we get to make. I have always loved the caraway seeds throughout the bread, but the family isn't fond of biting into flavor packed seeds. I started grinding the caraway and found them more receptive.

Yesterday I was googling to see if there way anything else to add to our favorite fake Rye bread and a few of the Jewish Rye recipes called for pickle juice! Figured why not?

It turned out excellent. Packed full of flavor, and no seeds to avoid. Using buckwheat flour lends a great amount of nutrition and flavor to any sandwich loaf. It contains all 8 amino acids and quercetin which is a very popular supplement for those with allergies or mast cell disorders to help stop reactions. Here is a great link to WHfoods that shows you why should add buckwheat to your diet. For us, it makes a great substitute for the rye breads we have been missing.

I have made a few varieties of this with various bread recipes to achieve different textures and works great as well. We really like a sandwich bread with the fake rye flavoring though..
