      UPDATE to original review 11/12/08 under chef Sharon123: After reviewing both recipes posted under Carole Reu (who hasn't posted anything since 9/12/99) and Sharon123, I need my review to capture the complete recipe I originally reviewed, which is Sharon's. Carole's recipe isn't exactly like Sharon's and I need to note the differences so that I can continue to make the recipe I love as stated in my original review including Sharon's changes to the instructions. In my opinion these two recipes are different; however, this is and I don't get to make that decision, as the "elves" have merged these two recipes, hence my notes to self in the form of this revised review. INGREDIENTS: ignore the 2 cups soybean flour, use 2 cups lentils versus 1 cup, and 5 tablespoon olive oil. DIRECTIONS: Step 3 - use blender; Step 8 - place into 4 greased loaf pans; Step 9 - let rise until doubled in bulk and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour.Sharon's intro says, "This bread will supply protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, sodium, potassium, vitamins A and C, thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin. Plus it tastes good! Prep time includes time for the dough to rise. Made during Bible times, this is a Middle Eastern bread." Next is my original review modified for the directions: Going into this I didn't realize it made 4 loaves! If I had I might have tried to scale it down a bit. So, drawing upon the strength of Ezekiel, I made it as directed! This also didn't fit my plans to use my KitchenAid mixer - too much volume! I had to make it by hand, which fortunately was therapeutic and cathartic. If you make it by hand because you don't have a commercial appliance, triple the estimated time it takes to make! Now that I've captured my thoughts on this, I can say that I give it 5 stars because IF you can put this together, the results don't disappoint. You may just have to use your brain on this one, and your heart! Thanks, Sharon123! Made for Healthy Choices.

      I give this 5 stars for taste, but 3 stars for recipe directions. I make quite a bit of bread so I knew what to do, but I definitely had to read through the recipe several times. I just had a warm slice with some low-cal spread and I'm hoping it tastes this good when it's cooled down. All in all, thanks for a good recipe.
