Pasty 04

This is an Afghani Bolani served at parties or gatherings and usually shallow fried and served with a spicy sauce.

I baked them to lower the calories and make them healthier.  You can fill these little pockets with anything that takes your fancy, but I used potato, peas and cauliflower. You can also make them vegan if you use dairy free yogurt. The filling is traditionally very mild with a flavorful sauce served on the side. I made my spiced yogurt and garlic dressing. If you prefer a richer flavor,  add some grated cheddar or spicy vegetarian chicken sausage to the potato filling.

These are also very similar to an English ‘Cornish Pasty’. Meat or potato and cheese inside a pastry case. It is thought that their origins were from Cornwall.  Coal miners would take their meat in a pastry case into the mines for lunch,  and eat the filling, throwing away the black coal covered casing.

These stuffed flat breads are best served fresh and warm.  They are easily reheated by just popping them in the oven on 350F for 5-10 minutes. The perfect lunch to take to work or down the mines.

3 1/2 Cups Maninis Ancient Grains Gluten Free Rustic Multigrain Bread Mix (or regular flour)

1 1/2 Cups Water

2 Tbs Olive Oil

Square crackers 1

Fresh, homemade, herb crackers, oak aged cheddar, pickled beets and dills and a small salad.  The perfect 4 o’clock Sunday afternoon snack. Not too heavy after your mimosa brunch, but enough so you don’t have to cook again and you can relax before Monday morning comes around.

These crackers are so simple to make and you can make them as gourmet and elaborate as you want.  At almost $5 a box for gluten free crackers, these are a healthy, preservative free, inexpensive alternative to store bought.

You can add any flavoring to these crunchy little home made rustic snacks. Try Garlic and Onion – fresh or dried. Spices like Taco mix or, oregano, rosemary or dill. You can also add 1 cup of Cheese for a cheesy cracker. Top with sesame, chia or poppy seeds. Just use what you have available. You can also make them unflavored if you are having  a strong dip or spread with them.  Cut them into any shape you want.

3 Cups Maninis Rustic Multigrain Bread Mix

1 Tbs Himalayan Salt

4 Tbs Olive Oil 1 Cup Water

Seasoning

Cut into squares or circles, or any shape you like and place on a baking tray. Oil tray or use parchment paper to line.

Bake for 10-13 minutes. Watch very closely after 10 minutes because they will burn quickly.

Every so often I just have a hankering for bread. It is not in the house as a rule, and I don’t like to eat processed flour, even though it’s gluten free, but when it’s time, it’s time.  In order to compensate for my wicked choice, I choose a high quality, nutritious filling.

You can put what ever you want into the sliders….Burgers, cheese and salad, hummus, sliced turkey, chicken salad, egg salad, the list is endless.  What do you put in your sliders?…Please leave a comment and let me know.

1 Cup Oats – Gluten free
7/8 Cups Warm Water
2 tsp Active Dry Yeast
3 Tbsp Olive oil
1 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
2 Large eggs
Freshly Ground Salt and Black Pepper

Add yeast to warm water in a bowl and let sit for 30 mins until activated.
Mix eggs, oil, vinegar and seasoning together.

Gluten Free Chia and Nut Bread

February 17, 2013 · by  

PICT7059 Bread GV

This is a heavy, crunchy, nutty bread that fills you up to the brim. I have a slice with an egg, grilled tomato and mushrooms for breakfast, and it holds me until lunch without a single hunger pang.  It is full of good fats and fiber. Pumpkin seeds are a good source of vitamin E and minerlas including zinc, magnesium and iron.

Studies have shown that people who eat up to 800 calories from nuts extra per day, do not put weight any more than people eating 800 calories less.  We usually have a loaf of this on offer. It so easy and so tasty.

There is no need to knead this, so it is really fast to make and you don’t even have to get your hands dirty.  After you have made this a few times, you won’t even need a recipe.  I have tried many different gluten free flours and this one wins hands down for flavor and texture.

93 calories per slice

1 Cup Nuts and seeds – Chia, Sunflower, Pumpkin, Sesame ( substitute 1/4 cup nuts for oats if desired )
7/8 Cups Warm Water
2 tsp Active Dry Yeast
3 Tbsp Olive oil
1 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
2 Large eggs
Freshly Ground Salt and Black Pepper

Add yeast to warm water in a bowl and let sit for 30 mins until activated.
Mix eggs, oil, vinegar and seasoning together.
Put flour into a bowl or a mixer and add in the yeast mixture and alternate with the egg/oil mixture. If you don’t have a mixer, use a wooden spoon and elbow grease.
Spray a loaf tin with oil and pour in mixture. It is quite wet.
Let rise in a warm location for one hour.
Bake at 350F until brown, about 35- 45 minutes. For a less top, put foil over the top.
