Updated: May 16, 2020

Those who are wondering what is it, don't worry this is a kind of artisan bread which you were craving for a long time and the best part is you don't need a starter and you don't have to knead it. It is very fast to go to bread which you may enjoy with your stews, soups, spreads, or favorite avocado on toast.

This bread doesn't take much of your time and you may make it every week so that you are never out of bread. I have prepared two versions. One regular and one with onion seeds. You may use any seeds or grains you have but this one is recommended as it will taste amazing.

This bread has a lot of good news for you. It's no-knead, takes less time, no sugar, and wholewheat bread. This recipe is totally #vegan friendly.

Let's get started with the bread goodness.

Boule (Regular and Onion seed)

Yield:- 2 Boule

Total time: 1 - 2 hours.


Whole wheat flour, 3 cups

Salt, as per taste

Yeast, 1/2 teaspoon

Water, hot to touch but not boiling, 250 ml

Olive oil

Onion seeds


  • In a mixing bowl, take whole wheat flour, salt, and yeast. Mix them. Pour hot water, now with the back of the spoon bring everything together with no lumps.

  • Cover with a damp towel and let it sit on the kitchen counter or some warm place at least for 3 hours. More than that is also fine.

  • After proofing it, transfer the dough mixture on a surface dusted with flour.

  • With the help of a scrapper bring the dough together for a few minutes. Dust flour on it till it becomes workable. Don't knead it.

  • Cut it into two halves. Tuck the dough inside to form a ball. It will be little sticky use dry flour to work with it.

  • Rest both the balls on parchment paper for 30 minutes. They will rise in size.

  • Brush them with olive oil after they have proved.

  • Garnish one boule with onion seeds and gently press with hands.

  • Score both the bread using a knife, it means make few cuts in the bread so that it stays in shape while baking.

  • Bake in a preheated oven for 450 degrees F or 232 degrees C for 30 minutes with a vessel of water in the oven. It will create steam inside the oven and make bread softer.

  • Now remove water vessel and bake for another 10-15 minutes till it forms a golden crust on top.

  • Let it cool before cutting on room temperature. Cut and serve with your favourite stews or throw it in a salad.


  • This will give you a little dense result as compared to all-purpose flour bread. You may use solely all-purpose or combination of whole wheat and all-purpose as per your liking.

  • Water should be hot to touch but don't use boiling water.

  • While putting in oven dust some dry flour on bread. it will give it a nice artisan look.

Go get set and make your own bread guys. I bet you will stop buying store bought bread once you have freshly baked bread out of the oven and your house is surely to smell like heaven.
