I have almost given up on bread as I realise nothing beats a loaf of sourdough… or if you are in London you have to go to Franco Manca and eat the best sourdough pizza ever!!! Hence I always feel like why copy something that you are then always disappointed in? I made these Paleo style roles and had them warm with butter, cheese and cucumber. It was good… Not at all like a sourdough but good in a different way.
Paleo Rolls – 3… I just made enough for an evening snack for Mr M and myself.
Oven 180 degrees C
- 1 dl po fibre
- 1/2 dl qunioa flour (or buckweat)
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 2 eggs
- water to make it a sticky consistency a bit drier than porridge
Mix all the try ingredients then mix in the wet – spoon out onto parchment (bakplåtspapper) and bake in the oven at 180 degrees C for 35 min.
The thing to note is that they don’t rise – hence if you want to make a bigger batch… what you see in your mixing bowl is what you will get post oven… nothing bigger. My dirty mind is now working overtime sorry 🙂 – lucky it’s Friday!
My kids complain sometimes that when their friends come round they get fish and broccoli and they get blue pancakes when they go elsewhere… As I want to keep tummies in check I now have come up with a really good substitute (they think they are like normal waffles!!) for waffles.
Gluten and sugar free waffles (makes 5-6 waffles)
25 grams melted butter
pinch of salt
1 tbsp psyllium husk (fiber husk)
1/2 dl buckwheat flour
1 dl oat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
2.5 dl of milk
Mix it all together and make life usual waffles! Serve with whipped cream and jam! I also made Chia Jam to go with this. I unfortunately think chia pudding is a little gross due to the consistency… but in jam form it should be jelly like!
1 dl frozen raspberries (or fresh of course)
1/2 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp of birch sugar if you feel the need
Blitz the two ingredients when raspberries are thawed, as a tsp of birch sugar if you want to sweeten it a little!
In Sweden pancakes is a staple child lunch/dinner in almost all restaurants. I still find it very difficult to accept that pancakes with cream and jam counts as a meal. The British piece of me feels it is missing a vegetable portion at least! Also as my youngest has a bit of a problem with either not doing a poo or if she is lucky something rock solid… I have finally created a totally wheat and gluten free pancake the kids love. In this case I used normal milk however. The problem if you also use a dairy free alternative is that they are then very hard to turn, but excess buttering of the pan does make this possible but patience is not always a virtue that I have in excess.
Gluten free pancakes
2 tbs Psyllium Husk (Fiber Husk)
5 dl milk
1 dl buckwheat flour
1 dl coconut flour
pinch of salt
50 gram of melted butter (cooled)
Mix all the dry ingredients then add eggs and milk and mix to a smooth mixture. Let it stand for 10 minutes and add more milk if needed the mixture should be runny like loose sirup.
Add a little butter and then cook like normal pancakes.
Today for lunch I felt the need to use some leftover chicken, a sad tomato and incorporated in a very tasty Quesedilla. First to the wheat free ‘tortilla’:
100g /1dl buckwheat (bovete) flour
2dl liquid – dairy free milk or milk if you eat dairy
2 tbs olive oil
pinch of salt
Avocado, chicken, tomato, red onion and cheese. A squeeze of lemon or lime juice plus some S&P is also great to making it even tastier (chill never goes a miss either). Be creative a lot of things are tasty warm with some cheese…
This makes 2 pancakes which you cook just like normal in some oil. When the second one is golden add a good dose of cheese – I used cheddar (around 100g) but you can use goats or ewes cheese if you are intolerant. Add the other ingredients chopped:
100g cheese (I use cheddar as I used to live in Somerset the home of Cheddar!) Lidl ( does good cheddar from my old town)
1 small avocado
1/4 of a smallish red onion
Spread everything out on one pancake add second pancake and squeeze with a pan lid or similar. Add S&P as well as squeeze of citrus of your choice and then serve with some greek/turkish yogurt and or some leftover Salsa. As I am based in Sweden you will of course realize that with Taco Friday being a big part of Swedish life most swedes have an old jar of salsa in their fridge
I have also realized that an open quesadilla is equally good if it feels like two pancakes is a lot. This makes a lunch for one or a starter for two.
