TPK&B Rustic White
The perfect sandwich bread
A simple and straight-to-the-point sandwich bread, the Rustic White from TPK&B is a healthier alternative to regular white bread, without compromising on the classic taste.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Made with flour, water, salt, oat milk, agave, and avocado oil, this white bread is completely vegan and completely healthy. It has a nice golden crust, and slices beautifully. Easy to chew and digest, it’s tasty, soft, and fluffy—all of the things you love about white bread, but healthier!
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
White bread is the perfect sandwich bread. Use it for your tuna and chicken salads, your hams and cheeses. It’s also great for French Toast as it absorbs the egg-milk mixture so well.
Or you can try a combination, like the Monte Cristo sandwich—it’s filling and delicious.
- • In a shallow bowl, whisk egg, milk, and a pinch of salt together.
- • Spread 2 slices of TPK&B Vegan White Bread (Rustic White) with mayonnaise.
- • Top one slice with your choice of hams and cheeses, and cover with the other slice of bread. Press down on your sandwich as firmly as you can.
- • On a skillet, melt butter on medium heat.
- • Carefully dip each side of your sandwich into the egg mixture, and place it on the skillet.
- • Cook one side at a time, pressing down firmly each time for about 3 minutes, until the bread is a deep golden brown and the cheeses are melted.
- • Serve while hot!
A FOOD STAPLE FOR A REASON
Much has been said about white bread nutrition, but it remains an easy way to get in some much-needed minerals for your body. White bread is especially high in calcium, which helps the development and the maintenance of our bones and teeth. It also contains fiber, protein, iron, vitamins, and good fats. And despite white bread calories usually raking a little higher than other breads, it’s never too much. In fact, it contains just enough calories to help you get the energy you need for the need.
Best consumed upon arrival, but you can store it on the kitchen counter at room temperature for up to two days. If you’ve sliced into it, you can leave it cut side down on the chopping board. You may also place the sliced loaf in a ceramic bread box or a clean paper bag. Never store bread in the refrigerator, or else it will dry out. By the third day, you can place the bread in a large Ziplock bag, but please note that the crust will soften and your bread will require toasting to refresh it. For storage up to three months in the freezer, wrap your bread in parchment paper and place it back in the Ziplock bag.
To refresh frozen bread, take it out of the freezer to thaw in the paper wrapping for a few hours or overnight. Make sure it gets to room temperature. Preheat your oven to 175°C. When ready, spritz your thawed loaf lightly with water on all sides to create steam, place on a baking tray, and heat for 15-20 minutes. Allow bread to cool on a rack for at least half an hour before serving.
