Number of Servings: 12


    1 cup warm water
    1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
    1 tablespoon molasses
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
    1 1/2 cups soy flour
    cooking spray
    cornmeal for dusting


1. In a bowl mix the water, yeast, molasses. Let sit 5 to 10 minutes, then gradually mix in the whole wheat flour, soy flour and salt mixture. Turn out onto a floured surface, and knead until smooth. Place in a large bowl lightly coated with cooking spray. Cover with a towel, and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
2. Punch down the dough, and knead for 5 to 10 minutes. Divide into 6 pieces. On a lightly floured surface, flatten each piece to about 1/8 inch thick with a rolling pin. Cover with a towel, and let rise 30 minutes.
3. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Warm a baking sheet in the preheating oven for about 2 minutes, then remove from heat and sprinkle with cornmeal.
4. Arrange the dough rounds on the prepared baking sheet, and bake 6 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from heat and cover the bread with a moist towel to soften. When cooled, slice in half and use a knife to cut pockets in the bread.
