Higher Fibre Focaccia Bread

This olive-oil soaked higher fibre Focaccia bread topped with cherry tomatoes and rosemary uses plain flour instead of bread flour to produce a soft crumb. Soft and fragrant,  this easy recipe is made healthier by adding Alchemy Fibre ™ For Flour in a 15% substitution to plain flour for higher fibre. 

Perfect for afternoons or weekends, easily prep this the night before for a quick 30 minute cook time.
