Mediterranean low carb focaccia bread with olives and rosemary
M low-carb bread is a bit like tofu and meat: somehow the alternatives never really reach the original. Actually. Because this low-carb focaccia blew me away: taste and consistency are damn close to a wholemeal flatbread! So close that probably nobody would stumble over it, who is not privy to it. The consistency is dry, light and airy, the taste is round and neutral-pleasant. It was so worth it, that I stood on one of the hottest days of the year in front of my hot stove and ... uh ... heated up a little.
If you're really bad, you cover the bread after the Incidentally, half the baking time with baking paper. Then the Focaccia remains visually even closer to the bright Italian template. But I was happy when, for once, nothing is burned (you remember the famous birthday cucumber?).
The chilled bread tastes wonderful with some olive oil and sea salt for dipping. Of course, all other dips, barbecue sauces or salted butter will go great too. If olives are not your thing, even dried tomatoes are doing really well. Or you just experiment wildly with the herbs.
Let me know how you liked the bread and if you found your favorite variety - I'm curious what you're saying!
