INGREDIENTS
    • 4 cups (500g) all-purpose Flour
    • 1 tablespoon Instant dry yeast
    • 1/4 cup (60ml) Vegetable oil
    • 1 egg
    • 1/4 cup (50g) Sugar
    • 1 teaspoon (6g) salt
    • 1/3 cup (33g) grated parmesan cheese
    • 1½-2 teaspoons garlic powder
    • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
    • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
    • 1 teaspoon Dried oregano
    • 3/4 cup (180ml) water
    • 1 Egg + 1 tbsp water
DIRECTIONS

1. In a bowl of a stand mixer or in a large bowl, place flour, yeast, sugar, salt, garlic powder and mix. Make a well in the center and add egg, oil and water. Knead the dough on low speed. If the dough too dry and 1-2 tablespoons water, if the dough too sticky, add 1-2 tablespoons flour. knead the dough for 4-5 minutes. Add chopped parsley, thyme, oregano, parmesan and knead for 2-3 minutes more. The dough should be soft and smooth.

2. Place the dough in an oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap, place in a warm place and let rise for 1 hour. Until doubled in size.

3. Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces. Roll each piece of dough into a long rope roughly 1-inch thick. If the ropes shrink as you try to roll them, let them rest for 5 minutes to relax the gluten and then try again.

4. Braid the challah as described in the video. Place braid challah on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Cover and let rise for 45-60 minutes

5. Preheat oven to 360F (180C).

6. Gently brush with beaten egg and oil. Sprinkle sesame seeds (optional).

7. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown on the edges. Let cool for at least 30 minutes.
