   Stir the first five ingredients together to dissolve the yeast, sugar
   and salt. Stir in the flour. Knead 10 minutes. let rise, covered,
   until doubled in bulk. Punch down, knead three or four times to
   remove air, then divide in four equal pieces. Shape each piece into a
   long loaf and place in a well greased French bread pan; slash the
   top. Brush the loaves with the egg white and let rise until doubled.
   Bake 1o minutes in an oven preheated to 400, then reduce the heat to
   350 and ake 20 minutes longer, or until the loaves sound hollow when
   tapped. Remove the loaves from the pans and cool on racks. Wrap in
   aluminum foil and freeze if desired.

 You could just mist water on the loaf after putting it into 
 the oven rather than using the egg white, if you are total 
 vegan :)
