    Used different ingredients. I made some alterations in this recipe to make the bread less glycemic. I used 1/4 c. plain flour with the water and yeast to make a sponge. I then used 3/4 c. gluten, 1 c. cooked brown rice, and 1 c. wholemeal flour (plus a little more to knead). The bread didn't rise as high as I would have liked, but it tasted great--just a little bit sweet, chewy, and soft. Next time I will use less rice and more whole wheat flour. I think it would have been perfect if I had done that this time. I'm also going to try it with wild rice. Thanks Dan!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Something else. This was a really great tasting loaf of bread. It was so moist and smooth. I've never made bread in my bread machine, except from a mix before, and it was so delicious! The whole family loved it! However, I did cook the rice for 40 minutes until it was fully cooked.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. A great recipe! Instead of the rice you can use Bulgur (or Burgul-which is Toasted cracked soft white wheat) that was immersed in boiling water for 30 minutes or so (until softened).  -  29 Sep 2008
