Exchange Value: 0* Servings: 2


  • 1½ garlic cloves, crushed
  • 500g (20oz) Loprofin Mix
  • 1 sachet yeast (incl. with Loprofin Mix)
  • 8g psyllium husks
  • 425ml water
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 medium red onion, peeled and cut into small wedges
  • 10–15 stoned black olives
  • Small sprigs of rosemary
  • Sea salt and olive oil, for top


  1. Combine the Loprofin Mix, yeast and salt and psyllium husks in a large bowl with the oil, water, oregano and garlic. Using a hand mixer^, beat to a smooth dough which will be more batter-like than that of standard bread dough.
  2. Cover the bowl and leave to rise in a warm place, until it doubles in size. 
  3. Transfer the dough into a 25cm spring form tin lined with baking paper.
  4. Dip your thumb into some cold water and press it into the dough (about 3cm from the edge of the tin) right down to the bottom of the tin (the water will prevent your thumb sticking to the dough). Repeat this at 5cm intervals around the tin. Repeat again to make an inner ring in the dough. Liberally sprinkle the surface of the dough with olive oil and rub over with your fingers. Sprinkle the top with a little sea salt and set aside to finish rising.
  5. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F / Gas Mark 4.
  6. Let the bread rise by one third, then bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes. Once baked, remove the focaccia from the oven and sprinkle with a little more olive oil.
  7. Remove the clip band from the spring form tin and slide the loaf onto a wire rack and allow to cool before cutting.
