Rice Bread

Adapted from: "Feeding the Whole Family"

1 cup cooked brown rice
1 cup warm water
1/8 cup vegetable oil
1/2 tablespoon sea salt
1/2 tablespoon dry yeast
1/8 cup honey
1 1/2 cup whole wheat bread
1 1/2 cup unbleached white flour or more whole wheat bread

Place the warm water, oil, salt, yeast and honey in a bowl. Mix slightly and let sit for 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and knead bread for 12 minutes. Place in a warm place until it doubles (about an hour). Punch the dough down and then shape dough or place in a bread pan. Let it rise a second time until it has doubled in size again (1/2 to 1 hour). Place in a preheat 350 degree oven and bake 25 - 30 minutes. After you remove the loaf from the oven rub a small amount of butter on top and cover with a tea towel for a few minutes (this helps soften the crust). Enjoy!
