Grain Free Garden Wrap

carb free wrapIngredients:
1 cup mozzarella cheese
8 large dandelion leaves
2 tbsp. tomato paste
1/8 tsp garlic powder
pinch dried basil
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp. psyllium (optional)

Preheat your pan and wash/dry your dandelion leaves. In a small bowl, mix together the tomato paste, garlic, basil, salt and pepper (you can use premade pizza sauce in its place as long as it doesn’t contain sugar). Arrange a layer of mozzarella in a small tortilla sized circle in the center of your pan. Coat with the psyllium and flip once the bottom is golden. Add another layer of mozzarella and remove from the heat once the second side forms a golden crust. Transfer to a plate and top with the dandelion leaves and tomato sauce. Wrap the sides of your “tortilla” as usual and serve.

Tip: Drink a full glass of water if using psyllium in your recipe. This recipe is gluten free, grain free and almost carb free (there are a small amount of carbs in the tomato paste).

Eggplant Parmesan and Eggs

gluten free eggplant parmesanIngredients:
1 eggplant
2 cups grated parmesan
5 eggs – for coating
2 eggs – for frying
garlic powder to taste
salt to taste
olive oil for frying (optional)

Preheat your pan or griddle, it must be hot or the cheese will stick. Slice the eggplant into 1/4″ or thinner slices. Crack five eggs into a bowl and beat. Put 2 cups of parmesan onto a plate and mix with the garlic powder. Dip each piece of eggplant into the egg mixture and dip into the parmesan cheese to coat on all sides. Fry on the griddle until the cheese coating turns golden brown and set aside.

I like to make the eggplant on a Sunday night so I can more quickly make these for lunch during the week. It stores fairly well uncovered in the fridge. I just crisp them up again when I make the eggs.

Fry the eggs sunny side up and salt to taste. Serve on top of one or two eggplant parmesan slices for a delicious gluten free and vegetarian version of steak and eggs. Enjoy!

Caprese Style Tomato and Goat Cheese Salad

Goat Cheese Caprese SaladIngredients:
Organic Tomatoes
Organic Chevre
Organic Basil

 

 

Slice the tomatoes evenly and arrange on a platter. Mold the chevre into flat circular pieces and place on top of each tomato slice. If your chevre is too crumbly to cooperate, warming it slightly may make it more workable. Arrange basil leaves on the sides and/or between each tomato.
