Buttermilk Hamburger Buns

We used to buy our beloved Gluten Free Potato Hamburger Buns  and Bison Burgers from the Healthy Monkey Cafe when we lived on the Coast.  Now the new menu indicates that there are traces of FLOUR in addition to Potato Flour…soooo disappointing, what betrayal.  When my Hubby said a clerk informed him of this…I was in utter disbelief, now it’s in Black and White on their menu.

Wilton spring form pans, tuna and salmon tins

Well, here’s the Bridesmaid’s choice, Buttermilk HB Buns, that I found in a Gluten Free & More Magazine.  Ginger, Baking Powder on top of lots of Yeast caught my eye.   You need to make Rebecca Reilly’s GF Flour Blend first.  Its a pain pulling out my mix master, so I just activate the yeast and mix by hand instead.

I divide the batter into 6 Wilton mini springform pans and sometimes Tuna or Salmon tins.   They rise well using my oven’s Bread Proofing setting.  Hubby likes to split and toast the buns for his Eggwiches and Hamburgers.

Black Bean Chicken

Black Bean Drumsticks

Black Bean Drumsticks

Black Bean Chicken offers a really unique taste from a very simple marinade.   You can find these pungent, fermented Beans at oriental grocers or in the international section of your big chain stores.  Both brands below are under 4 bucks.  A little goes a long way.

You can go with the basics:  Chicken Legs, Black Beans, Tamari, Green Onions, Garlic & Ginger OR go all out and add Sesame Seed Oil, Fish Sauce, Cilantro, Citrus Zest and Heat – Jalapenos or Chili Flakes.

Gluten Free Grain Free Pumpkin Pie

GF Pumpkin Pie

GF Pumpkin Pie

Pies are usually time-consuming and tedious.  I hate making pastry.  So I found this recipe intriguing because you can run all the ingredients in the food processor for both the crust and filling.  Plus it’s the only pumpkin dessert recipe that uses fresh grated Ginger.  I saved more time by using Blanched Almond Flour.  My hubby found it too sweet. So for the second try I added Cinnamon to the crust, then replaced the Cane Sugar with less Coconut Sugar and Green Stevia.  Try the original or  my version of A Humble Place’s Gluten Free Grain Free Pumpkin Pie
