Baguettes with Nori and Sunflower seeds.

This healthy bread has the goodness of Seaweed and Sunflower Seeds. In Carbohydrate value, one slice has the same content as a slice of commercially produced white bread.

Place a dish with water in bottom of oven. Set oven to 210 C

300g. Bread Flour,( I used Laucke White Mix)
150g. Plain Flour (all purpose Flour)
2 teaspoons of instant yeast
290 mls. of warm water
! teaspoon of both sugar and salt.( I didn't add these as the Laucke Flour has these added)
85g. Sunflower seeds
Nori (Seaweed)

Combine Flours, yeast, water in TMX bowl and knead for 2 mins.
Add 1/2 Sunflower seeds, and salt and sugar if using. Knead for 1 min.
Leave in bowl in warm place until doubled. (Ideal temp. between 20/25 C )
Turn out onto Silmat and divide in two.
With rolling pin, roll to the size of a Nori sheet.
Roll up like a Swiss Roll, pinch seam and place seam underneath.
Spray with water and sprinkle 1/2 remaining seeds along roll.
Place in Baguette tin, and do the same with other 1/2 of dough.

Cover with plastic and place in warm spot until doubled.

Bake in preheated oven, 210 for 35 minutes. or until brown.
Cool on wire rack. Cut when cold.
