Prep Time 1 hour 20 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 50 minutes
Servings 16


  • 300 g orange kumera (alternatively known as sweet potato) (1 medium)
  • 1 tbsp active dried yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 cup High-grade flour (plus extra for kneading)
  • 1 1/2 cup wholemeal flour
  • 1/2 cup new hemisphere™ Hemp Seed Flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp omeganz™ Avocado Oil


  • Peel and cut sweet potato into small even-sized pieces. Cover with water in a medium saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce to a medium heat and cook until soft, around 10-15 minutes. Drain well and mash.
  • Combine yeast, sugar, and warm water in a medium mixing bowl. Leave somewhere warm for about 10 minutes until frothy.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine flours, salt and rosemary.
  • Add oil and mashed sweet potato to yeast mixture. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well to form a dough. More flour may be needed if the mixture is too wet.
  • Knead the dough on a floured surface for 10 minutes, adding extra flour when needed. The dough should become soft and elastic.
  • Place kneaded dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a clean tea towel, and leave to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes. It needs to double in size. I turn my oven on low. leaving the door open and place the bowl on the stove top to provide the temperature needed for the dough to rise.
  • Line an oven tray with non-stick baking paper. Cut dough in half and shape into 2 loaves. Place these on the lined oven tray and cut a few 1cm-thick slashes on top of the loaves with a knife. Leave to rise for another 20 minutes or so.
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C Bake.
  • Bake the loaves for about 25-30 minutes or until a crust has formed and the base is firm and sounds hollowed when tapped with the back of a knife.
  • Remove from oven and cool before slicing.
