What Started it all:
Yeast flour egg water tomato. Soy sauce

This unique recipe combines the richness of tomato and the umami of soy sauce into a delightful bread that pairs wonderfully with soups, salads, or can simply be enjoyed on its own. Perfect for a small gathering or family meal, this bread is sure to impress with its distinct flavor and texture.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 packet (2 1/4 tsp) active dry yeast
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup warm water (110°F/45°C)
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce (preferably smooth)
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Activate the Yeast: In a small bowl, combine the warm water and sugar. Sprinkle the yeast over the water and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes, until it becomes frothy.
  2. Prepare the Dough: In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Make a well in the center and add the activated yeast mixture, tomato sauce, soy sauce, and the egg. Mix until the ingredients are well combined and a dough forms.
  3. Knead the Dough: Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface. Knead for about 8-10 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour, a tablespoon at a time.
  4. First Rise: Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, turning it to coat all sides. Cover the bowl with a damp cloth or plastic wrap. Let it rise in a warm place for about 1-1.5 hours, or until it has doubled in size.
  5. Shape the Dough: Punch down the dough to release any air bubbles. Transfer it to a floured surface and shape it into a loaf or divide it into rolls, depending on your preference.
  6. Second Rise: Place the shaped dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or into a lightly greased loaf pan. Cover with a damp cloth and let it rise again for about 30-45 minutes, or until it has doubled in size.
  7. Bake: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom. If baking rolls, check for doneness at around 20 minutes.
  8. Cool: Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack. Allow it to cool completely before slicing, to ensure the best texture.

This Savory Tomato Soy Sauce Bread is a delightful twist on traditional bread, offering a unique flavor profile that is both satisfying and versatile. Whether enjoyed fresh out of the oven or toasted with a bit of butter, this bread is sure to become a favorite in your household. Enjoy!
