This story was written by member girlA and comes from The Dairy Free Diva Recipe Exchange group in the YumSugar Community.I've never been very good at making breads, but this was very easy and SO DELICIOUS! I love potatoes and I love pesto, so it was a no-brainer — I had to make it and it smelled divine as it baked. And please note, this recipe makes 2 of these large loaves, not just one!

1 C plain soy milk I know it seems like a lot of work, but it's actually very easy and so worth it! I'm making several loaves to give to neighbors for Christmas. Great with soup, stews or just for snacking! Enjoy!
1 C leftover mashed potatoes
3 Tbs pesto (I used Classico brand)
1 Tbs olive oil
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 pkg active dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
1/4 C warm water
4 C all-purpose flour (or you can use bread flour), or more if needed
Lightly oil a large baking sheet and set it aside. Punch down the dough and turn it out into a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough for 5 mins. Divide the dough in half (use a sharp knife), shape into two round loaves and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Cover again with clean plastic wrap or dish towel and let rise for another 45-60 mins.
