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.

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!

Sautéed Cauliflower and Broccoli

Sauteed Cauliflower and Broccoli poppopcooks.com

There are a lot of people who don’t like Cauliflower. They were made to eat it as a kid and vowed to never eat it again. A confession. That described me pretty well. Gammy likes it and suggested I try it mixed with broccoli and sautéed with garlic and lemon the way I like to do broccoli by itself. So here comes Sautéed Cauliflower and Broccoli. BTW I really liked it. So, all you cauliflower haters out there try it like this. It is really good. Not just tolerable but GOOD.

Sauteed Cauliflower and Broccoli1 poppopcooks.com

Cut the stalks off the heads of Cauliflower and Broccoli. Then trim and cut them into florets. Chop up 4-6 cloves of garlic depending on how garlicy you like it. The lemon will bring out the best of the garlic and won’t let the garlic overpower the other flavors.

Sauteed Cauliflower and Broccoli2

Put a skillet large enough to handle it all on at between medium and medium high. Add 2 tbsp. of olive oil. For sautéing it doesn’t have to be extra virgin. The Cauliflower is going to take the longest to cook. Then the Broccoli. Then the garlic. So when the oil has heated up add the Cauliflower and very lightly sprinkle a little salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes.  Then toss it to get it coated with the oil. Toss regularly as the veggies cook.

Sauteed Cauliflower and Broccoli poppopcooks.com

When the Cauliflower starts to show a few brown spots add the Broccoli and toss it all together. When the Broccoli starts to show a few brown spots push the Cauliflower and Broccoli to the outside of the pan and put the garlic in the bare spot in the middle. Spread it out and squeeze the juice from the half of lemon on to the garlic making sure that all the garlic gets some lemon juice. Toss the lemon rind into the pan. Let the garlic cook like that for about 30 seconds.

Sauteed Cauliflower and Broccoli4 poppopcooks.com

Toss it all together and shake the Parmesan Cheese all over it.

Toss it again and it’s ready to serve. And, I have to confess again, it is real good.

Roasted Cornish Game Hen with Lemon and Garlic

Enjoy!
Cornish Game Hen
Tyson Cornish Game Hen

Preparing Roasted Cornish Game Hen is  easy and real good. The only thing to consider before you do it is that start to finish is about an hour. You can find them in the frozen poultry section packaged in pairs. When we are unpacking the groceries we put one hen in the fridge and one in the freezer. You will get 2 servings per bird. It’s just Gammy and I (and Bubba) so one is enough. The next day it’s thawed and ready for the prep. Set the oven at 400F. Rinse the bird real thoroughly under cold running water. If you run into a piece of fat or two while you are rinsing out the bird just yank it off and put it in the dish that you are going to roast the hen in. Drizzle some olive oil in a casserole dish just big enough to handle the bird (or birds). Salt and pepper the little darling. Put 2 quarters of a lemon and 2-3 garlic cloves in the chute. Just smash and peel the garlic. You don’t need to chop it. And a splash of white wine. Stitch her up tight with toothpicks, front and back. Put it in the oven. Figure on about 45 minutes maybe a little longer. The breast will read 180f on a meat thermometer when the area around where the thigh attaches to the body is still not done. What will work for you is to pry the thigh away from the body and look down in there If there is any red or even pink it needs a little more time. Ten minutes more and you try the other side. It should be ready. Take it out and let it sit for a few minutes then slice it in halve. Both sides of the back bone first then turn it over and split the breast bone. While it’s sitting put the dish that you roasted the bird in on a burner at medium. Add the garlic and lemon from the bird and a splash of white (or red) wine and a thin pad of butter. When it starts to simmer if it is not thick enough for you Whisk a little corn starch and cold water together and whisk that mixture into the gravy to thicken it. Add the cornstarch mixture just a little bit at a time until it is how you like it.

Roasted Cornish Game Hen with Lemon and Garlic
Enjoy!

Spoon some of the gravy on the pieces of hen when you serve it. It’s a real good dish and worth the little wait.
