Please welcome Kresha from Nourishing Joy who’s sharing a scrumptious spring pizza! It features lox (salt-cured salmon), fresh lemon, fresh dill, capers, sour cream, and spring onions. Beautiful, isn’t it?
Mmmmm…. homemade pizza. I start with Erin’s pizza crust, but because we love a thin, crisp crust, I use half as much dough for each pizza. A single dough recipe will then make 2 pizza crusts! (I also use spelt flour, but you can use whole wheat.) The pizza pictured (from last night) is topped with cheese, pastured chicken, and sauteed onions/garlic/mushrooms. Often we add crisp bacon pieces, too.
About two weeks ago, my 11-year old son C. asked, “Mom, what’s mac and cheese?” 11 years old and he doesn’t know about mac and cheese? That’s part good and part bad. The good — he doesn’t know about the K-word mac and cheese. The bad? He didn’t know about homemade, real food macaroni cheese, which is a thousand times better. I knew what I must do. Macaroni and cheese was going back on the menu — real food style.
Our nights are refreshingly cool, yet the garden is still producing. This is perfect weather for warming harvest soups. At least I think so! Make use of your crockpot to cook beef until tender, then combine with flavorful and colorful summer vegetables. I have been serving grain-free almond bread on the side.
I first learned about tortillas — the Spanish omelete kind — on the BBC TV River Cottage series with Hugh Fernley-Whitingshall. You saute and cook various ingredients and then pour whisked eggs overtop. When cooked, the eggs set the whole mixture into a pie — or a Spanish omelete. This post includes a free video demonstration and print recipe.
Usual routine when souring flour: mix dough, let sour for 8 hours, finish dough, cook. Now, that’s not hard. But what if I said you could skip the whole sour-for-at-least-8-hours-thing, yet put the same quality of nourishing food on the table? In other words, without the wait? You can and I just did (say it). Yes, it can be done! Easily. Deliciously. Nourishingly.
