I love to bake... but I cannot seem to master baking bread! The main problem is that my dough *never* rises very much (let alone doubles in size), and so the result is dense and unsatisfying bread. Additionally, I don't know what is an appropriately warm place to keep the dough while it rises.
Does anyone have suggestions? Or can you point me in the direction of a useful article or blog post about bread-making?
I am traveling for 6 months, and I'm only about three weeks in. I'm currently in Bolivian and will be heading to Ecuador as well. I have had meat here a few times but each time it's bothered my stomach (sometimes worse than others). So, I have switched to an almost completely vegetarian diet.
The problem is, I'm completely new to this and have no idea where to start. I am also in a place where typical meat substitutes don't seem to be as common (tofu, veggie burgers, seitan, etc). I need simple recipes that will still allow me to get all of the nutrients I need. Does anyone know of good recipes or, even better, a good blog with simple recipes for vegetarians who are just getting started?
