Remember that gluten-free paleo zucchini bread recipe we made a few weeks ago? Well today we made a delicious variation based on which ingredients we had on hand. Instead of using zucchini, we used potato. The recipe is still gluten free, although according to most sources it isn’t paleo because of the white potato (which I’ve never understood – sweet potatoes aren’t actually better than white potatoes, guys!) but if that’s a problem for you then you can always substitute some other tuber that “Dr.” Mercola gives the stamp of approval (check Wikipedia guys!).
Alright, getting to the point – here is our potato bread recipe! 10/10 would eat again.
1 medium-sized potato
1/2 teaspoon salt
1+1/2 cups almond flour
1+1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon guar gum
3 large eggs
2 tablespoons milk of choice
1 purple shallot
1 sprig rosemary
2 sprigs thyme – fresh stems removed and leaves minced
sun-dried tomatoes to taste, I used 1/4 cup
Pre-heat oven at 350
Saute sliced shallot, chopped rosemary and thyme with potato (shredded or spiralized and drained)
Mix all ingredients and bake for about 30 to 40 minutes.
And now for the improv.
It’s so hard to write recipes for Chinese food because Chinese people don’t use recipes. It’s all by feel… a cup of oil here, a handful of monosodium glutamate there, whatever tastes good goes. The same principle of creativity that can make Chinese food heart attack fodder also allows you to make it delicious and healthy.
This here is some kind of Chinese gourd. It’s easy to make stir fry healthier just by omitting the cornstarch and using small amounts of oil (two to three teaspoons, which is quite small relative to most stir fry). You can also use cooking spray if you want – just remember that it isn’t really “zero” calories so it’s not a good idea to use the whole bottle in one go!
The good thing about Chinese food is that there’s a big emphasis on veggies, which are obviously healthy when they aren’t drenched in grease.
Yeah that’s it. I just had some extra photos so I tacked them onto the potato bread post. I took the PSAT today so I’m tired, ok?
