If I were standing near a table filled with desserts (brownies, cookies, cakes, etc.) across from a table of freshly baked breads……. I’d go for the bread!! Bread could be my favorite food. I used to live on Baguettes, Multigrain, Olive, Sourdough, Bagels, Ciabatta and Pita. But not anymore!! (see why below). But, when I get bread cravings, I bake a fresh loaf using unique gluten free flours like buckwheat, brown rice and chickpea. This Yeast-Free Buckwheat Bread recipe produces a beautiful “German -like” bread that may surprise you.
Several weeks ago, my husband and I hosted a BBQ with all the accouterments to make grilled steak sandwiches. Grilled meat (none for me), sliced red onions, crimson beefsteak tomatoes, Swiss cheese, spicy sweet mustard and organic mayo to spread onto warmed sourdough baguette. The spread was so appetizing but to my surprise, hardly anyone ate the bread. This is usually my favorite part of the meal. Instead, our friends ate deconstructed “carb-free sandwiches leaving us with 3 long uneaten baguettes.
