Low Carb Gluten Dairy Yeast free Bread

 

Ingredients:

400g whole buckwheat

80g whole flaxseeds/linseeds

80ml olive oil

150ml filtered water x 2

2 tsp gluten free baking powder

sea salt to taste

 

Method;

Rinse the buckwheat, then cover in filtered water and souk for at least 2.5 hours.

Soak flaxseeds/linseeds for at least one hour in 150ml filtered water.

Pre-heat the oven to 165 degrees Celsius.

Drain the buckwheat, but do not rinse.

Stir the flaxseeds/linseed.

Spoon the buckwheat and flaxseed/linseed into a bowl, then add the rest of the ingredients.

Blend until to desired consistency – I like to keep some of it not blended, because of the added crunch so it’s up to you.

Pour mixture into a loaf tin, lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 1 hour and 40 minutes, leave to cool on a cooling rack.

Great for sandwiches, toast or dipped into soup.

 

Chicken Satay

 

Ingredients:

300g chicken, cut into equal size cubes

 

For the marinade

4 tbsp. tamari

1 tbsp. honey

1 tbsp. turmeric

2 cloves garlic

125ml peanut butter

125ml coconut milk

Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and heat the mixture until it starts to thicken. Set aside to cool. While cooling, put the chicken cubes onto kebab sticks and put into a deep dish. Once the marinade is cool, pour it over the chicken, making sure it’s well coated. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

 

For the dipping sauce

1 thumb size fresh ginger, sliced

1 garlic glove, sliced

Juice of 1 lemon

60ml peanut butter

15ml tamari

2 tbsp. honey

salt and pepper to taste

Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until smooth.

Cook the chicken on a cast iron pan for 10 minutes or until cooked. Drizzle with freshly squeezed lime juice and fresh coriander.

I recommend serving it with roasted Cauliflower and Cannelloni Beans, but it can be served with rice and any veg.
