Bread Recipes With Sourdough Starter Discard

This Sourdough Pumpkin Seed Bread recipe is the perfect way to use your sourdough discard from a starter. I hate throwing out food (or rather, composting it!)- so I’m always looking for ways to reuse kitchen scraps to cut back on waste. Instead of tossing your discard when you feed your sourdough starter, try this awesome recipe instead. I have a whole page on my site for recipes that use sourdough discard. That way you can add a hint of sourdough flavor to your baked goods, and cut back on food waste.

How Do I Make Seeded Sourdough Bread?

  1. The previous night, add the sourdough starter and water to a large mixing bowl. Add in the salt and the flour one cup at a time, stirring frequently. Fold in the pumpkin seeds, and mix until well combined. The dough should be shaggy when finished. Cover with a tea towel and allow dough to rise for 8-18 hours.
  2. Transfer the dough to a floured bamboo proofing bowl or to a glass bowl, and lightly dust with flour. Allow dough to rest for another hour.
  3. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees with a Dutch Oven pot inside.
  4. Once oven reaches temperature, remove the dutch oven from the oven, add parchment paper to the bottom (optional) and add the dough to the pot, and place back in the oven with the top on for 30 minutes.
  5. Carefully remove the lid, and allow the bread to bake uncovered for another 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven, place the bread on a clean surface to cool, and wait at least 45 minutes before slicing!
