Re: George's Recipe Corner

Sounds great!

I'm currently working on (not necessarily in order):

Apple Pie
Apple Crisp
Moussaka
Buckwheat Cookies
Zucchini Lasagna

While I am either given by friends or take the info off the net, I like to change the recipes to truly make them my own (like changing butter for flax) and then I test them on Tester 1 and 2 (me and my wife) then I bring it to work where I get to see how it fares.

Re: George's Recipe Corner

have done apple crisp. I use almond flour, stevia or agave for sweetener or even a bit of apple juice. Crumble chopped and ground nuts w/ coconut butter, cinn, vanilla, sweetener and crumble over apples and/or other fruit! bake and enjoy

Re: George's Recipe Corner

George - awesome thread.

I need help/ideas...the XF affiliate I belong to is hosting a pot luck this Friday. Any thoughts on a zone/paleo friendly dish...enough to share with approx 15 people? There are only a few of us there who are on zone (and I am the only paleo and gluten-intolerant) so I my dish may the only thing I will be able to eat. Any thoughts?

Re: George's Recipe Corner

Hot off the presses - I watch the TV show "House" and as the new season started tonight. I as House will do, will be sitting there and a stuff just comes to my mind. I had an old muffin recipe and well, I needed it to fit. It does now. Just made me some, and gobbled one down. Good with butter or honey or just alone.

Buckwheat Blueberry Muffins

Simple, easy, good. You can either take whole buckwheat groats and make the flour yourself, or buy organic buckwheat flour and use the same amount of flour as you would of whole groats.

Ingredients:
1 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 cup flaxseed meal
2 cups blueberries, fresh or defrosted
2 1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tbsp baking powder
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs, beaten

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a separate box whisk wet ingredients together. Whisk wet ingredients into dry ingredients until well mixed. Mix in blueberries last, and let mixture sit for 3 minutes (VERY IMPORTANT).

Fill muffin pan (I use silicon for no stick) 3/4 full, bake for 20 min or until tops golden brown.

Makes 12 muffins.

Sounds good, I have a recipe all made up, going to test it on family for Thanksgiving so that one is way on the back burner. My recipe is how shall I say it, a lot more evil. Not all my recipes are going to be that good for you.

Are you talking price? It is relatively inexpensive. I get what I think are 1 pound bags from the local natural food store for about $1-$2 each. They last quite awhile, I keep the flour in an airtight container in my fridge. The big thing about buckwheat is it is not a grain, its a fruit.

Re: George's Recipe Corner

What a great thread - we had something similar in the CF London site a while back. For any curry munchers (like me) out there I found this to be a good with chick pea flour (gluten free) chipaties (basically just flour a litte salt and water, then made into patties and grilled).

Chicken, mushroom and cashew curry
1 onion - roughly chopped
2 cloves of garlic - crushed
little salt and pepper
garam masala - approx 1 tbl spn
turmeric - half tbl spn
cumin - 1 tbl spn
ground coriander - 1 tbl spn
couple of handfuls of cashew nuts
plain yogurt - 2 tbl spn's

whizz all the above in blender for one minute until it is a good curry paste consistency

heat in a wide flat heavy based pan for a few minutes with some oild of your choice (i use a table spoon or two of olive oil) then add

2 chicken breasts - cubed
half a dozen mushrooms - roughly chopped

cook for ten mins until chicken is cooked (if you like your mushrooms a bit more flavoursome you could dry fry them before you put the curry paste in until they shed much of their water). You may also need a little water to loosen the sauce.

you can also add a couple of handfuls of sultanas or raisins at the end for a bit more of a sweeter edge.

I like it, anyway.
