Jim Brady requested a multi-grain bread recipe.  This one contains *whole*
kernels of 8 different grains.  It's different and delicious--especially if
you have fresh herbs available.

Kashi Herb Bread

Kashi Breakfast Pilaf is a specially formulated pure blend of whole oats,
long grain brown rice, whole rye, triticale, hard red winter wheat, raw
buckwheat, barley, and mechanically dehulled sesame seeds. This blend
creates a complete protein food with a high concentration of complex
carbohydrates and fiber. It lends a wonderful chewy texture to this bread.

        1/2     cup Kashi Breakfast Pilaf (uncooked)
        1       cup boiling water
                Reserved cooking liquid plus water to equal 8 fluid ounces
        2       tablespoons honey
        3       tablespoons olive oil
        1       tablespoon chopped fresh basil (or 1 teaspoon dried)
        1       tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (or 1 teaspoon dried)
        1/4     teaspoon granulated garlic powder
        2 1/4   cups bread flour
        3/4     cup whole wheat flour
        1 1/4   teaspoons salt
        2       tablespoons gluten flour
        2       tablespoons powdered buttermilk
        2 1/8   teaspoons active dry yeast
1       Combine Kashi and water in small saucepan and simmer, covered, 15
minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, 30 minutes.
2       Place Kashi in small strainer on top of measuring cup and press
down with back of spoon to drain thoroughly; reserve cooking liquid.
3       Place cooked Kashi and all remaining ingredients in pan of bread
machine in order listed, or in the order recommended for your machine.
4       Set controls for Basic bread with medium crust and start machine.
Makes one 1 1/2-pound loaf.
VARIATION: Omit the herbs and use a milder flavored oil instead of the
olive oil, for a bread that tastes great with your favorite fruit spread.

(If you can't find Kashi at your supermarket or food co-op, contact the
Kashi Company at PO Box 8557, La Jolla, CA 92038-8557.)
