where do u get the quinoa flat bread?

I make my own, almost everyday.

Quinoa Flat Bread

1 cup Quinoa flour ( you can switch it up with other flours)

1/2 teaspoon Xanthan gum

pinch of salt

3/4 cup water

Mix it up, it will be like thick porridge.

Use parchment paper on a cookie sheet and with wet fingers pat and spread dough into flat breads (1/4 inch).

I usually make four for burgers.

Top with salt or herbs and bake at 400 for about 15 to 20 minutes.

For burgers I add about a tablespoon baking soda and pat them about 1/2 inch thick and bake at 350 for about 20 to 30 minutes. When I take them out of the oven I cover them so they are not too crispy. Then I use a serrated tomato knife to slice them open.

It's been snowing like crazy since yesterday and I was out shoveling so wanted something to warm me up.

Oven Mac and Cheese and Broccoli

And I may make peanut butter cookies for later.

Hamburgers in lettuce "buns" and homemade oven fries. Bing cherries for dessert.

This was such a great idea I decided to have burgers tonight. It never dawned on me to just wrap it in lettuce. I paired it with some tater tots. I imagine when I'm craving my sugar fix later I'll have some of my canned peaches from last fall. (I have no fear of cc because I am insane about kitchen cleanliness, especially when canning.)

Since it's so cold out we decided to make chicken noodle soup. It's also one of our simple, don't have to stand in the kitchen meals.

I took the chicken and browned it in olive oil on the stove, then cut it up and added it to a pot with salt, pepper, garlic, onion and enough water to make the amount of broth we want. Let that simmer for about 20 min. until it tasted like chicken broth instead of water then added some chopped baby carrots and kept simmering it. Meanwhile made some pad thai rice noodles. When it was time to serve put the noodles in the bowl and then added the soup.

It really hit the spot tonight.

Soup does sound pretty good. I made stock from my leftover Thanksgiving turkey so all I have to do is pop that in a pot and add veggies and noodles. It's a great way to simplify winter soup.

That does look good! Can you get just the noodles? I always see kits to make a meal without the meat with the seasoning packet in it. Is that what you mean? Or do you buy just the rice noodles? I've never seen JUST THE NOODLES. Will have to look for that.

I have seen rice noodles in the grocery store but if you have an Asian store near you, they will be downright cheap.

On our most recent visit to an Asian store we got eight different kinds of noodles including cellophane, green bean, sweet potato, mung bean, green pea - they are so inexpensive and lovely and, best of all, gluten free.

Tonight was lamb gravy over rice, a total comfort meal with lots of carbs and calories :D

Yep! The MINUS 37 does not include windchill which can make it feel far worse. The coldest temperature we had was -51F and with windchill -65F. Not so good.

I know - sometimes we think we are quite insane. We cannot wait to move to Croatia! The Mediterranean climate is certainly a far cry from this frigid barren giant ice cube!

In northern Alberta. The funny thing is, nothing shuts down - everyone is expected to continue going to work, school, whatever. Our vehicle tires become square and thump when driving until they warm up; skin can freeze in 90 seconds. It can be downright dangerous! Blech. :angry:

    • Haha, Ennis that's given me no excuse not to make it now!  I've been faffing around about it but now I think I must try it out! They honestly don't sound too hard to do either. The Keto Chocolate frosting I think I can make today if the avocados are ripe enough. I just got some maple sugar and maple syrup (I know I'm bad) but I'll look at the sugar free one. I know I don't feel too well if I eat pure sugar but I couldn't help it. I think I have everything else and it sounds super good. Thanks so much Ennis!!
    • LONG POST incoming I got my cheese sauce recipes compiled and going to throw in my frosting....and yes I normally eat it by the spoon, I make a sugar free version with lakanto. 4 Of my Favorite Cheese sauces
      Will list the ingredients for each one, they all use the exact same cooking method which will follow.
      Super Sticky Mozzarella
      1/2 cup of cashews soaked over night and drained
      1 cup water
      1 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
      3 tbsp Tapioca Starch
      1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
      1/4 tsp garlic
      1/2 salt Poor Mans Mozzarella
      3 tbsp coconut flour
      1 cup Unsweetened Plain Cashew or Almond milk (refrigerated version)
      2 1/2 tbsp Tapioca Starch
      2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
      1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
      1/4 garlic powder
      1/4 salt
      1/2 tsp Psyllium husk unflavored Cheddar
      1/2 cup of cashews soaked over night and drained
      1 cup water
      1/4 cup Nutritional Yeast
      2 tbsp Tapioca Starch
      1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar bit more if you find the bite lacking and for a sharper one
      1/4 tsp garlic
      1/2 salt
      1 tsp Annatto
      1/2 tsp Psyllium husk unflavored 1. Blend all the ingredients for you cheese flavor very well in a blender
      2. In a sauce pan heat over medium high stirring CONSTANTLY for 5-10 mins. First it will start forming clumps then it will thicken up. Remove from heat and stir a bit longer til it cools to prevent burning. Sometimes I use Lemon Juice in them in place of the vinegar, this really depends on your preference to a more citrus blend or a more bite in your cheese. Any feed back or blends you do with them? Would love to hear about some suggestions for blends. Vegan Queso 10-12 rounds of eggplant, sliced 1/4-inch thick 1 whole egg plant
      spray oil
      1 1/2 cups unsweetened original almond milk (or milk of choice)
      4-6 Tbsp nutritional yeast
      1/2-1 tsp finely minced fresh garlic
      1 to1 1/2 tsp cumin
      1 1/2 tsp chili powder
      1/4 cup chunky medium salsa, slightly drained 1. Slice your eggplant into thin rounds just under 1/2 inch (not quite 1/4 inch), then sprinkle both sides of the flesh with a little sea salt and arrange in a colander to help draw out some of the moisture and bitterness. Let set for 10-15 minutes, then rinse with cool water and thoroughly pat dry between two clean towels.
      2. Preheat oven to high broil and place an oven rack near the top of the oven. Arrange the dried eggplant rounds on a baking sheet lightly spritzed with non-stick spray and spray both sides of the eggplant with a little more oil. Sprinkle with a very small amount of salt.
      3. Broil on high for 2-3 minutes on each side, watching carefully as to not let them burn. Flip at the halfway point to ensure even cooking. Once the eggplant appears tender and both sides have golden brown color, remove from the oven and wrap loosely in foil to steam.
      4. After a few minutes, unwrap and peel the eggplant skin away. It should come right off. If you pack your roasted eggplant into a 1-cup measuring cup, it will be 1 cup.
      5. Place eggplant in a blender with the 1 1/2 cups almond milk, 4 Tbsp nutritional yeast, minced garlic, cumin, chili powder and blend on high until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. I added a pinch more garlic and a little more nutritional yeast. To thin, add more almond milk.
      6. Transfer to a small saucepan and warm over medium to medium heat until slightly thickened and bubbly – about 5 minutes. The longer you go the thicker it will become. (Keep Stirring)
      7. Once hot and thickened, remove from heat and stir in DRAINED salsa or Rotel. Don’t put the liquid in or it will make it runny. Pour into a serving dish and top with a little smoked paprika and hot sauce for flavor/color. (If it looks like it has little clumps in it you need to blend it more) I have had success using both cashew and almond milks for this, I also found adding a tsp of flour like coconut helps with the thickening and richness.I personally like adding a bit of annatto or 2-3 pieces of sun dried tomato when blending to give it a deeper orange color. GOES GREAT with Roasted Orange or Red Bell Pepper This dish was inspired by Baba ghanoush served at a small restaurant in Dallas.


      Keto Chocolate frosting
      2 large ripe avocados
      1/2cup cocoa powder
      6-8tbsp Lakanto Sugar Free Maple
      1/4 tsp vanilla extract
      pinch of salt Thin out with a bit of almond milk if needed to desired consistency
      Blend all in a blender or a food processor until completely smooth.
       
    • I remember on here that they are OFTEN grown on something that contains gluten. I watched a video before but I can't remember the details. The thing is they are supposed to be super nutritious and also they just taste really good. They definitely were making me sick about a year ago but I didn't know about the gluten. If I go to the grocery store how can I know? Are there certain kinds that aren't grown with gluten or do I just need to contact the growers?  
    • I never heard of goat butter but I guess I could make it if I had raw goats milk. Which I don't at the moment. I'd have to see if anyone has goat's milk kefir, billions of probotics would be good though! I've heard of ghee but I'll have to look up how to make it. It's interesting that you are okay on those items in moderation even though you can't have cow's milk. I'll have a look around locally and see what there is. I think I did read that when you make cheese or butter (or ghee) it greatly lessons the lactose. If I do try it it will be only really small amounts. Anyways, that's what I wondered, that some people can't have cows milk but can have goats milk products. So that's really interesting to me.
    • I'm not sure if it's lactose. If I experiment and still feel awful from it it might be that. And I want to try making those nut cheeses sometime soon. I ordered some cooking stuff and mesh strainers to try and make almond milk so maybe I'll try making some cheese at the same time. Coconut cheese sounds intriguing. I'll look that up too. Nut butters I over did and then didn't feel so great but that was over 6 months ago so I could try a little and see. I could just start with small amounts. I think too my stomach just couldn't digest fat at all before and it seems like it's a bit better now. Avocado I can do now! I couldn't before and I'm so glad it's back. But I've only sliced it into salads so far so avocado ice cream and guacamole sound crazy good to me right now. Anything I can make ahead and keep for a few days is good too. Avocado frosting - can I eat that just with a spoon? I know the thing about having milk from animals. I don't know if it really helps but when I have had any I try to find somewhere where it's not mass produced. Like there is a family near by that has some goats and you can have milk but they only do that in the spring and summer. The goats seem okay but I know what you mean. And it is pretty weird if you think about it. : (
