This was my first time using coconut flour. It makes a nice hearty bun that can hold up to what ever you use to fill it. Tonight I filled mine with a Cooked Chicken Breast and Sharp Cheddar Cheese and it was delightful! The bun held up nicely and only started to crumble a little towards the last couple of bites.
1 1/4 cup coconut flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. Kosher salt
1/2 cup olive oil
1 Tbsp. water
Yields: 5-6 buns
Banana Bread w/ Toasted Walnuts
Makes one 9-inch loaf
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting the pan
1 1/4 cups walnuts, chopped coarse
3/4 cup Sugar (if you want to make it Sugar Free add 1 cup sugar substitute instead of Sugar)
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 very ripe, soft, darkly speckled large bananas, mashed well (about 1 1/2 cups)
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 large eggs, beaten lightly
3/4 stick unsalted butter, melted and cooled (or olive oil)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
This years garden season was quite a fun one. Mainly because it was the first garden at our new house. Although, I must admit, I had not planned to have one this year because of the house renovations, full-time job, and elderly dog to take care of. But then I saw some plants on sale at our local market and I couldn’t resist.
The garden started out quite a bit rocky. A few weeks after I planted everything I went out to the garden and realized that I was not doing a great job at keeping up with the maintenance, the weeds had taken over. So that day I buckled down, pulled the weeds, unburied our plants, put in some paths, covered the bare areas with cut grass and “started again”.
Not everything did well, and a few plants died… we can’t win ‘em all. But after the garden got established it did pretty well. Thankfully things got ripe at a rate that I could process them and use them up before they went bad.
I thought it would be fun to put together a list of recipes for the tomatoes and peppers. Feel free to send me any recipes you would like to include in the line up.
