We know it's a bit of a stretch, but we couldn't help ourselves and have to release a Game of Thrones themed recipe to enjoy with the final episode of the entire TV series this Monday! We have taken our inspiration from the "Bowls of Brown" from Fleabottom (spoken about so highly from Ser Davos and Gendry) and the adorable Dire Wolf bread made by Hot Pie.
Judging by the way the characters talk about the bowls of brown, the only thing that this recipe will really have in common with the King's Landing peasant dish is that it will be brown, and served in a bowl. We still want it to be nutritious and tasty, so we are going with a hearty beef stew.
Our Dire Wolf Bread recipe creates a nutty flavoured scone type mix. The idea is to create a bread that doesn't rise too much, otherwise, your Dire Wolf starts looking a bit puffy. This one has been designed to be paired with a decent amount of butter and our stew - it's quite a dry mix on its own. If you want to go for a sweeter version, you can always add more maple syrup!
We chose Buckwheat Flour for its nutty flavour, slightly rustic texture and higher nutrient content. Hemp seeds were added to boost nutrition, add some more texture and also because we are 99% sure that Hemp Seeds were a staple in Westeros (don't look that up!).
