Old World Black Bread

This is a dense, whole wheat dark bread which stands up well to veggie toppings.  A slice of this bread, toasted, is excellent with a  topping of blended cottage cheese, herbs and vegetables.  Avocado Toast is a natural.  It’s also good mixed with a lighter whole wheat dough recipe to make a swirl bread.
