Happy Springtime!

April is my birthday month and this year marks a special milestoneas I enter a new decade of birthdays. Mother always made me a chocolate pound cake slathered with 7-minute frosting to celebrate, but my tastes have changed over the years. This month, I’m sharing my new favorite birthday cake along with a scrumptious sprouted grits soufflé that I plan to pair with grilled shrimp and a fresh garden salad to round out my celebratory birthday dinner. For an extra special birthday breakfast, I’m sharing my Super Easy Beignets recipe. I make the dough and keep it in the fridge to fry up a few of these light and airy, melt in your mouth pillows from heaven all week long.

Happy Baking!

-Peggy

Ingredients
  • 4 cups Stock (chicken or vegetable)
  • 1/2 cup White cooking wine
  • 1 cup Sprouted Yellow Corn Meal
  • Sea salt and pepper
  • 2 Tbsp Organic unsalted butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup organic heavy cream
Servings:
Units:
Instructions
  1. If using the standard method, add water to a 3-quart saucier or saucepan and set over high heat. Sprinkle in cornmeal while whisking (water does not have to be boiling). 3. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Let boil, stirring frequently, until polenta thickens enough that it starts to spit. Lower heat immediately to prevent spitting and continue to cook, stirring frequently with a spoon or silicone spatula and scraping bottom to prevent scorching, until polenta becomes thick and pulls away from side of saucepan, about 30 minutes for pre-soaked cornmeal and 50 minutes for dry cornmeal. Season with salt. 4. Stir in butter or olive oil using either a spoon, silicon spatula, or whisk. If polenta forms lumps, beat vigorously with a stiff whisk to remove. If polenta becomes too firm or begins to set, add a small amount of water, stock, or milk, and beat in with a whisk until fully incorporate and no lumps remain. 5. Serve right away with accompaniment of your choice, or scrape into a vessel and chill until set, then cut into pieces for grilling, searing, or frying.
  2. Add stock and wine to a large stock pot and bring to a boil. Whisk in cornmeal, whisking well to ensure there are no lumps.
  3. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to a simmer and stir frequently with a wooden spoon, scraping the bottom to make sure it doesn't scorch. Simmer and stir until polenta thickens. Add butter, heavy cream and salt and pepper. Continue stirring until desired thickness is reached.
  4. Serve with your favorite stew or roasted vegetables.

Ingredients
  • 4 cups arugula
  • 1 cup Millet, cooked
  • 2 Beets
  • 1/2 cup Almonds, chopped
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup + 4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • Grated zest of 1/2 lemon
  • • Sea salt and pepper to taste
Servings:
Units:
Instructions
  1. Method: - Clean and quarter beets, wrap in tinfoil and roast for 30-60 minutes or until easily pierced with a fork. When they’ve cooled enough to handle, peel off skins and chop into one inch squares - While beets are roasting prepare salad dressing by combining lemon juice, olive oil, sea salt and garlic clove in a small bowl and mixing. Set aside. - Prepare millet according to package instructions (here is another great resource for millet cooking instructions!) - In a medium serving bowl combine arugula and millet, mix well with dressing. The millet will soak up the dressing and become extra flavorful. Add beets, chopped almonds and serve immediately!
  2. Wash, peel and chop beets into 1" pieces. Toss in a bowl with 4 tablespoons olive oil and sea salt and pepper. Place the beets on a foil lined baking sheet and roast for 25 to 30 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Allow to cool completely before serving.
  3. Prepare salad dressing by combining remaining olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest and parmesan cheese in a shaker or mixing bowl and shake or whisk until well blended.
  4. Place the millet in a pot with two cups of cold water. Bring to boil, then turn the heat down to low and cover the pot. Cook for 10-15 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed and the millet is tender. Add 1/4 cup of salad dressing and stir well with a fork to completely coat the millet in the dressing. Allow to cool completely before serving.
  5. Combine cooled millet, arugula, beets and almonds in a bowl. Toss with desired amount of salad dressing and serve.

Chocolate Apple Oaties

oaties1

 

I used to make it a point to spend one week each year taking classes at the John C. Campbell Folk School (folkschool.org) in Murphy, North Carolina. Nestled in a beautiful mountainside setting with the Appalachian Trail close by, the folk school offers a range of classes to satisfy every interest and hobby.

 

During one of my visits I enrolled in a story-telling class and had lots of great classmates; one of which had a serious allergy to anything chicken, including eggs. I thought about my old friend the other day when I found this recipe and adapted it to not only be egg-free, but gluten-free as well.

 

These cookies are not too sweet and are moist and crumbly instead of chewy. They’re really good, especially with the bit of chocolate added. I hope you enjoy making them as much as I do.

Servings:
Units:
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar together, then add egg and beat in well.
  3. Add lemon juice and zest and mix until well blended.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk salt, baking powder and flour until combined. Then add to wet ingredients, mixing until blended. Be careful not to overmix, or cookies will turn out less tender.
  5. Roll cookies out and cut into desired shapes. Place on parchment lined, ungreased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until edges appear lightly golden.
  7. Combine glaze ingredients and whisk until smooth. Allow cookies to cool slightly before glazing. Drizzle on glaze and sprinkle with pistachios. Let cool completely before eating.
Recipe Notes

You may want to place cookies on a wire rack to glaze. This will allow you to completely cover the top with glaze. Use a cookie sheet under the rack to catch drips. Allow glaze to set before removing cookies from rack.

Sprouted Bread

Peggy’s Basic Batter Bread Gets A Creative Twist

Note: This recipe works great with our gluten-free or gluten flours.

 

When I created the To Your Health Sprouted Bread recipe in 2005 it was my effort to achieve a great tasting, finely textured batter bread for home bakers who didn’t have the time for yeasted breads, nor the experience, but still enjoyed great tasting bread that would be quick and easy to make. From this basic recipe I’ve enjoyed adding creative ingredients that can simply be stirred into the batter before baking to enhance the taste and occasion for good sprouted bread. (more…)

Ingredients

  • 1 1/8 cups filtered water
  • 1/4 cup lard
Servings:
Units:
Instructions
  1. Mix all ingredients well until a dough ball forms (about 3 minutes). If dough is a little crumbly add a tablespoon of water at a time until dough holds together well. Let dough sit, covered, for about 2 hours. Uncover and separate dough into sixteen pieces. Form the pieces into small, slightly flattened balls.
  2. Place a floured plastic bag (gallon-sized zip lock) on a bread board. Place a ball of dough on top, then top this with another floured plastic bag and roll the tortilla out with a rolling pin. You can also use a tortilla press in place of the rolling pin. Slowly remove the top plastic bag, flip the tortilla over into your hand and slowly remove the second plastic bag.
  3. Place a dry iron skillet on a burner set at medium heat. Place a tortilla on the skillet. Once you begin to see some bubbles appear, take a spatula and flip the tortilla over to cook on the other side. Once the second side is a little browned, remove it from the skillet and place on a plate. Repeat the process and simply stack your finished tortillas. Store in a zip lock bag. I refrigerate mine if not using them all.
