Golden Butternut Squash and Wild Blueberry Pancakes

Gem Squash

Gem Squash

I used to hate anything green when I was a kid.  Now, I’m all over vegetables.  I’ve only introduced myself to a variety of  squashes recently. I love Kobucha the best.  I roast wedges with garlic oil, pepper medley, rosemary and a drizzle of maple syrup.  So good I even eat the rind !

The last time I was at the Kamloops Farmers Market I picked up two small Kobucha and Gem Squashes. Both were green and speckled but the Gem Squash had a lighter, wetter flesh similar to zucchini.  I wanted to put my cooked Gem Squash leftovers to good use.  I found Gluten Free Gigi’s Golden Butternut Squash and Wild Blueberry Pancakes  recipe.  I  increased the squash to 1 Cup.   I misread the recipe and included the Coconut Oil in the batter plus threw in the extra yolk on hand .  I usually have light Blueberry Cottage Cheese Pancakes daily, so I used frozen Raspberries instead of Blueberries to change things up.  This forgiving recipe worked out well…my teenager even ate 2 without complaint !

Incredible Gluten-Free Pizza

Kathy “Live the Smart Way” Smart created this Incredible Gluten-Free Pizza recipe for the Canadian Living magazine.  It’s been re-posted on the Walmart site and adapted by many.  I add chopped Jalapeno and extra spices.

Cauliflower is the “surprise” ingredient that makes it “incredible”.  Bake the crust, dress  then bake again.  Suggested Toppings:  Pesto then Pizza Sauce, Onions, Bell Peppers, Chilies, Sausage, Leftover Meat Loaf/Sandwich Meat, Sun-Dried or fresh Tomatoes, fried Eggplant and your choice of grated cheeses.

Makes 2 Pizza Crusts or 1 large rectangular crust baked on a Pizza Stone.
