Rustic Rosemary-Olive Bread
This free-form loaf is rich in protein and omega-3 fats from flax and chia seeds. You can easily use brown flax instead of golden (the golden just gives a lighter color to the final product). Vary the herbs and spices as you’d like—basil, chives, oregano, and garlic also make good additions! per serving: Food photography by Pornchai Mittongtare; food styling by Liesl Maggiore; prop styling by Robin Turk For more recipes and article, see Beyond Gluten-Free .
