I love bread, but not everyone can eat bread. I have friends who are severely allergic to gluten, so they don’t eat bread. I also have friends and family members that have medical conditions that don’t allow them to eat wheat. I think that’s the smart and responsible thing for them to do – they have a hard job and I give them GREAT respect. I also have family members who are allergic to nuts, bees, even strawberries…so they try to keep their distance. I might be allergic but I don’t know that yet, I only listen to my body and by saying “listening”, I mean, I DO. waking up with achy joints for example, itchy throat, blah blah symptoms probably from it…who knows, maybe I’m maybe I’m not. If you don’t have an allergy, why not enjoy the lovely gift of bread? I’m not making any point here.I just want to show you the possibilities of making something hearty and taste like bread. I came up with so many ways to eat clean,and bread was on top of my list. I grew up eating french white bread, toasted with butter for breakfast. Oh boy it was so good! Anyway, I have created recipes from left overs to ground nuts, no nuts, veggies, oats etc.
Here in this post, I will put for you to try a few recipes. Gluten free. This recipe is simple made by left overs we had last weekend and last night.
The first one is made with Quinoa. Is already cooked so I only added a few ingredients just like you bake a regular muffin or bread. Adding some extra protein like eggs whites or whole eggs and some protein power in some recipes, or both.
Ready? My Quinoa bread was the bomb, and this is what you need to create that yummy bomb of flavors and textures:
Banana Quinoa~Pecan Bread
~ 2 cups of cooked plain quinoa
~ 3 Egg’s whites
~ 1/4 cup Pecans
~ 1 Whole spoon flax seeds
~ 1 ripped banana smashed
~ Sea salt to taste
~ 1 Spoon organic stevia (optional, or honey)
~ 1 teaspoon baking powder
~ 1/4 cup water (or coconut milk/water whatever!)
Simply mix all ingredients, well blended. It doesn’t matter if the banana is not completely smashed, those pieces after baked are delicious chunks to bite. I did bake it in the microwave for about 4 mins in a small ceramic oven proof container. One about 5 inches wide by 2 inches deep.
Or you can use this new paper baking mini loafs, greasing the bottom and sides. Or just go for the ceramic bowl and add mixture until that line before the edge. Bake it for about 4 and half minutes.
Watch this baby out of the “oven” ( Yeah, ok microwave):
And this is how I ate it…
It’s a hearty delicious bread with almost zero guilt!
You prefer a salty one for dinner? Get this Spanish one:
Spanish Quinoa Olive Bread
~ 2 cups plain cooked Quinoa
~ 1/2 cup spanish olives with peppers
~ Add some of the olive juice (1/4 cup)
~ 2 wholes eggs
~ 1 teaspoon full of sweet paprika
~ 2 tablespoons flax seeds (optional)
~ 1 teaspoon baking powder
~ 2 tablespoon evoo
Again, making sure all ingredients are well blended, especially the sweet paprika:
Paprika can turn into lumps inside the container once is storage. Bake it for about 4 minutes and 30 seconds.
Let it cool and voila’! Spanish bread, great to dip on eggs or tomato sauce.
I already tested this and is so NOM NOM good!
And last, this was monster good…I didn’t know how to express the deliciousness! I had from last night left overs of mini lentils with brown rice, quinoa and wild black rice. Yah! Sounds crazy. This is what you need:
Lentil Wild Bread
~ 2 cups of cooked lentils mixed with cooked brown rice, wild rice & quinoa (plain)
(get the mini lentils if you can find them)
~ Handful of chunky unsweetened coconut
~ 1/4 cup of salted pecans
~ 1/4 cup Molases
~ Just about 1/2 cup water
~ 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
~ Pinch of salt
Mix it all very well. Put on of the containers mentioned above and bake for about the same time, I think this one came out faster. 3 mins and 30 seconds. I made also bite sizes, very small muffin alike, for 2 minutes each.
I added on top a little bit of brown sugar to have a nice crusted top.
And this is how it looked after:
Cute little thing with huge flavors and texture, I have many made for the week in different sizes, ingredients and flavors.
