In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water. Add 3 cups warm water and bread flour; mix well. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rise for 2 to 3 hours.

Personal Notes:
This delicious rustic bread is often made during lent because it does not contain any oil or butter. I enjoy making it any time of the year, especially when I know I will have lots of great Greek food to accompany it!
