I would like to alter a recipe from using leaven to Instant Active Dried Yeast. Dan Lepards recipe for Crusty Potato Bread uses 250 gms leaven, 500 gms flour 75 gms grated potato 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt, 25 gms honey and 300 gms water.

The instant yeast I use suggests 2 teaspoons of yeast to 500 gms flour. do I ignore the leaven, or use an extra teaspoon of yeast? Thank you.
