DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the yeast and the water in a medium mixing bowl and let stand for 10 minutes, or until dissolved.
  • Stir in the oil and thyme, then the mashed sweet potato, honey, and soymilk.
  • Stir gently until the mixture is smooth.
  • In another bowl, combine the flours, cornmeal, and salt.
  • Make a well in the center and pour in the wet mixture.
  • Work together, using a spoon at first, then hands, until thoroughly combined into a dough.
  • Turn out onto a floured board and knead for 8-10 minutes, adding additional flour until the dough loses its stickiness.
  • Place in a clean bowl and cover with a tea towel.
  • Let rise in a warm place for 1 1/2 hours, or until doubled in bulk.
  • Punch the dough down and turn back out onto the board.
  • Divide into six equal pieces.
  • With hands, roll each piece into a long coil, about 1" in diameter.
  • To make each loaf, braid three coils and pinch the ends together.
  • Place the loaves on a floured baking sheet, cover with the tea towel, and let rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
  • Brush the tops of the loaves with soymilk.
  • Bake in a preheated 350F oven for 40-50 minutes, or until the tops are golden and the loaves feel hollow when tapped.
