21 Jul

Although I have called this a picnic bread, it does not mean it can only be consumed at a picnic!  It would also have a welcome place at a bbq.  Or lunch. It’s a lovely summery bread made with my favourite gluten free bread recipe.  I actually prefer this dish cold as the flavours develop and you are left with a tasty bread.

Stuffed Picnic Rolls (Gluten Free)

2 Jul
Delicious and colourful filling

Delicious and colourful filling

I’ve just finished munching one of these and think it’s the fillings that make it so delicious.  The bread is just a carrier of tasty treats and looks pretty when sliced into two too.   I’ve called this a picnic roll as they would be ideal for a summer picnic but they are a great idea for lunch too.   This bread is very filling due to the high fibre content too, so one is plenty.   You could play around with the fillings too and perhaps make a breakfast roll stuffing it with cooked egg, bacon and a tomato?   The rolls are best made a day before you want to eat them as they are wrapped in clingfilm to firm up.

Flaxseed Bread Loaf

5 Jun

I adapted this recipe from  http://www.blogilates.com/blog/2011/03/09/no-carb-bread/.   If you want a bread that is very low in carbs and gluten free, then this is the loaf for you since flaxseed is low in carbs and also has a high omega 3 fatty acid content (33 times higher than wheat germ).   The fibre content is high too.  The joy of flax!  It tastes like a wholewheat loaf and I love it toasted, slathered in butter.   I usually toast this under the oven grill rather than in the toaster because it makes a moist loaf and is a challenge to get out of toaster!

This is very low in carbs (about 1 net carb per slice) and is also gluten free.   A great way to enjoy flaxseed in your diet.

Cauliflower Wrap

Cauliflower goodness!

Eating vegetables can make you creative and this is certainly a creative way to eat cauliflower.   Although these can be used as wraps, they are not really strong enough to be eaten with your hands, so knife and fork people!  We sometimes use them as flat bread and just serve them open, slather the top with veggies or salad (and chicken for the Chief Taster).   Delicious and filling and a great way to eat healthy too!  Yummy, tell me more Diva…

Coconut Bread (Gluten Free)

This is very easy to make and full of coconut goodness!  Simple to make and great slathered with some Chia seed jam!  Yummy toasted too.  The coconut gives this loaf a sweet taste, so no other sweetner is needed.   A great bread for afternoon tea, or a nice alternative for breakfast! Yummy, tell me more Diva…!

Flatbread (Coconut flour and Psyllium)

27 Aug
Yummy flatbread

Yummy flatbread

This is another great use of Psyllium in a grain free bread recipe and is very easy to make too.   Since Psyllium and coconut flour are high in fibre this bread is very filling.  Make sure you drink a lot of water!  You can use this for dipping with sauces, spread with pate or load it up like a open sandwich.    Use it like a sandwich wrap, make a mini pizza…just have fun and enjoy it!  You could play around with the spices too, perhaps add chillis?   Yummy, tell me more Diva…

Amazing Bread Rolls..Grain Free, Gluten Free and Low Carb

27 Jul
Bread! Healthy bread!

Bread! Healthy bread!

I can barely contain my excitement about finding this recipe as it is the BEST alternative to bread I have ever tasted.  It looks like dough when you are making it, smells like bread, and looks like bread with air pockets BUT…*drum roll*…is gluten free, grain free, low carb and just fabulous!   I think you could get away with passing these off as bread and no one would know.   They rise like bread…oh the excitement in my kitchen at the moment as I am whipping up a batch every other day.    I feel like running out into the street and handing rolls out to spread the word about this healthier alternative.  So if you see a crazy lady on the corner handing out bread rolls, don’t be afraid and cross over the street, take a couple!  Yummy, tell me more Diva…
