  • 200 g wholemeal flour
  • 250 g plain white flour
  • 1 heaped tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup fresh herbs, finely chopped (I used parsley, thyme and chives)
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 300 mls soya milk
  • 100 mls soya yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 220C/428F
  • Mix together the flours, bicarbonate of soda and salt in a large bowl
  • Add the finely chopped herbs, black pepper and sunflower seeds and stir to combine
  • Whisk together the milk and yoghurt
  • Make a well in the middle of your flour mixture and pour in the milk and yoghurt mixture
  • Mix together with your hands until you have a rough dough
  • Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and mould into two round loves
  • Place your loaves onto a lightly oiled baking tray and slash a deep cross through them
  • Brush lightly with a little olive oil and place in the preheated oven for 20 - 30 minutes until risen and brown - check its bottom, it too should be nice and golden!


This recipe is enough to make two loaves of soda bread, halve it if you only want one!
