Salt-free or low sodium bread recipes needed
I'm searching for a good recipe for a salt-free or low-salt bread for a friend who has just been diagnosed with kidney disease. I know about the Tuscan no-salt bread, but that has a few shortcomings, according to Carol Field. First is that the bread does not keep very well - a real drawback, given that my friend and his partner lead busy lives, and can't bake often. Second is the bland taste. Field describes it as a good foil for stronger tastes like liver pates, stews, etc., which also occupy the no-go zone for my friend's diet. I should also add that salt substitutes like Mrs. Dash are out - apparently they contain high levels of potassium, which is another forbidden ingredient.
So - ideas, anyone? Would, say, the addition of spelt, or cornmeal, or other whole grains help to mitigate the loss in flavour? Herbs such as rosemary or sage? Perhaps there's another ethnic-style bread that doesn't depend on salt. Does anyone have a really good recipe they can share? TIA.
