Easy, No knead Ciabatta!
450ml Warm water
A glug of olive oil
Mix all ingredients except the oil. When a sticky wet dough, pick up pieces of the dough and slap back nto the bowl to create air bubbles. Do this for up to 5 minutes. Pour over a couple Tbsp’s of olive oil. Let sit for an hour or more then pour onto a baking tray. Optional toppings – Sliced up olives, fresh rosemary and thyme, salt, mixed herbs etc 🙂 Back at 220 degrees for 30-45 mins. Bring out when lightly golden and hollow sounding when tapped. Serve along side soup, at a BBQ smothered in garlic butter or use a big slice as the base to an open steak sandwich with garlicky mushrooms and fried eggs!
Can also be made into buns for burgers or soup. Just put on a tray in handfuls and keep an eye on them cooking time-wise. Take out when lightly browned.
