Paleo Flatbread Recipe – Quick and Easy – Gluten Free

Paleo Flatbread Recipe-9-poppopcooks-Paleo-Quick and easy-Paleo recipes-Gluten free recipes

Paleo Flatbread is…

….easy to make. You could make a fresh one every night while putting together your quick and easy weeknight dinners.

My wife – aka – Judy – aka -Gammy – has to be on the Paleo Diet for a while so I make her dinner Paleo style and mine, well, any damn way that I want, as long as it’s quick and easy.

I’ve been working hard at getting this Paleo Flatbread Recipe to where it pleases my honey. So here goes.

I just make one a day for Gammy while the rest of the meal is coming together. You could make bigger batches and keep them in the fridge – or freezer – with paper towels in between them and microwave them when needed.

First whisk together all the ingredients except the olive oil and let it sit for about 8-10 minutes for the almond flour to absorb the water. You could use coconut flour instead of almond flour if you prefer. Basically it’s just the Paleo friendly flour of your choice and a small pinch of salt mixed with water to make the batter.

From that point you can add a bunch of options like a pinch of baking powder to get it a little lighter and all kinds of different flavors that might work for you. Gammy likes this garlic powder, dried basil and grated parmesan cheese combo.

Ya know, I have tasted a little bit of it on occasion and it’s pretty good. BUT, I’m not abandoning Poppop’s homemade bread, ever.

Next put an 8″ – or larger – skillet on at medium and add just enough olive oil to barely coat the bottom. When the oil has heated up pour in the batter. Get the batter to spread out by tapping the center of the pile with the whisk and/or tilting the skillet to get the batter to spread out.

When the bread has cooked and firmed up enough so you can carefully insert a wide burger flipper or pancake flipper gently under the bread to separate it from the pan and gently flip it over.

Cook until it is firm almost to the point of being crispy. Remove the bread to a paper towel lined plate.

It goes over best if served while still warm. Let me know how yours turned out and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Gluten Free Flatbread from Yogurt and Almond Flour

Gluten Free Flatbread poppopcooks.com

If some of your family and friends should eat gluten free this is one of the gluten free bread recipes that I make for Gammy every night. Out of all the gluten free flatbread recipes that I make for her this is her favorite. It’s easy and so good that I even  sometimes steal a little bite.

Put a skillet on at medium high and generously spray it with oil. You first need to put about a tablespoon of plain or vanilla yogurt in a small bowl. Add about twice as much almond flour and the pinch of baking powder and mix it together.

Gluten Free Flatbread1 poppopcooks.com

Then add the garlic powder, grated parmesan, salt and dried basil. Sometimes if I need to get out of trouble I add some chopped up sun-dried tomatoes. Gammy likes that. Mix it up and it should come together in a ball. Add more almond flour or a little more water in very small doses if it is too soft or too dry and mix again. When you have a ball of dough put it on a surface that you have dusted with almond flour. 

Gluten Free Flatbread3 poppopcooks.com

 

Flatten it out with your palm and fingers and use a spray oiled pancake flipper to carefully put it in the pan.

Gluten Free Flatbread2 poppopcooks.com

 

Give it about five minutes and slide the flipper under it and take a peek. It should be firm enough to let you carefully turn it over and give the other side the heat. When it is browned and firm remove it to a rack or a couple of rolled up towels to cool off and firm up some more.

There you have it!! Gluten Free Flatbread! It’s healthy, it’s easy and  it’s good!

Stovetop Grilled Shrimp with World Class Veggies

Stovetop Grilled Shrimp poppopcooks.com

You want it to be real good but you want it to be easy and on the table in a flash. This Stovetop Grilled Shrimp will fill the bill for you on all counts.

If your shrimp are frozen just put them in a bowl with enough water to cover them up for about ten minutes while you prep the vegetables, then peel and devein them.. Rinse and wipe out the bowl and put the peeled and deveined shrimp back in. Drizzle them with a little olive oil, lightly sprinkle with salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes and garlic powder. Squeeze in  the juice from a quarter of a lemon. Toss in the lemon rind and stir it all up. Put it aside to marinate a little as you do the veggies.

Put the oven on at 400°F. Scrub and rinse the sweet potatoes then slice them in to about 3/8″ slices. Put the slices in a bowl and drizzle them with olive oil and lightly sprinkle some salt and pepper on them. Toss the slices so they get coated with the oil, salt and pepper. Spread them out on a large cookie sheet and put them in the oven. After about five minutes either turn them over or switch the oven to broiler mode and give them another 3-4 minutes. Poke them with a fork to see when they are done. I wanted them to look grilled,,so,,I grilled them and then put them in a bowl covered with a plate and on an idle burner on the stove to stay warm.

While the potatoes are cooking cut up the veggies. Trim the stub ends off the asparagus and cut the asparagus spears  into any sized pieces you want, but, you already knew that didn’t you. Cut the onion into thin strips and chop the garlic.

Stovetop Grilled Shrimp9 poppopcooks.com

 

Put a large skillet on at medium high and add one tablespoon of olive oil. Put the asparagus in the pan and toss a few times as they cook.

Stovetop Grilled Shrimp4 poppopcooks.com

 

When they are just starting to get a little limp push the asparagus out to the sides of the pan and put the onion in the bare spot. Stir the onion a few times as it cooks.

Stovetop Grilled Shrimp8 poppopcooks.com

 

When the onion just starts to get translucent push it to the outside also and put the garlic in the middle. Squeeze the juice from a quarter of a lemon on to the garlic. Lightly sprinkle salt and black pepper. Toss it all together and toss it few more times as it all cooks and comes together. That’s an old Beatles song right? 

Stovetop Grilled Shrimp5

 

Okay, so the Veggies are almost done. Now the Stovetop Grilled Shrimp part. If you don’t already have a stovetop grill or a skillet on a burner put it on now. Crank the heat up to medium high and spray oil it. As soon as it is hot spread the shrimp out and pour the liquid from the bowl on top of  them. Stovetop Grilled Shrimp2 poppopcooks.com

 

Turn them over as soon as they get pink and grill the other side until the middle is opaque white.

Serve up your Stovetop Grilled Shrimp with some chilled Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio!

Oh yeah, I almost forgot. You might like some Focaccia with it. It. We made some with the dough that we keep a supply of in the fridge. Mix up a little extra virgin olive oil with a little balsamic vinegar for dipping,,mmmm,, life is good.

Cheater Mini Focaccia Bread

Who doesn’t like Focaccia Bread? Nobody I know of anyway. Well, Gammy wants to stay gluten free so I have to make my own serving of bread to have with dinner each night. Some nights Bastone, some nights Carte Musica and some nights I just gotta have Focaccia. There is always some bread dough waiting  for me in the fridge. But you could use some of the dough available in the grocery store.

Poppop's easy bread1.jpg

Take as big a wad of dough as will work for you tonight, off of the ball of bread dough that you have in the fridge. Or just get some in the store on your way home.

Cheater Mini Focaccia bread1

Shape it like an oversized hockey puck and let it rise for about 15 minutes or until it gets a little puffy.

Cheater Mini Focaccia Bread2

When it’s puffy poke some  dimples in it.

Cheater Mini Focaccia Bread3

Put whatever you want into the dimples then very lightly drizzle some olive oil into the dimples. This pic shows rosemary, chopped onion and red pepper flakes but you can us whatever YOU want for YOUR Cheater Mini Focaccia Bread. Here is a good wikipedia article about Focaccia Bread. Bake at 450F for about 6-10 minutes depending on how crispy (or not) that  you want it.

Cheater Mini Focaccia Bread

Bon Appetit!  It’s great with some real good extra virgin olive oil for dipping that has been jazzed up with some red pepper flakes or whatever YOU want to jazz up your olive oil with.
