Spanish Tortilla - Egg Free

Spanish Tortilla

The traditional "Spanish Tortilla" can be thought of as a simple potato and onion omelet (or omelette if you prefer). This version forgoes the eggs and uses garbanzo bean (chickpea) flour as the binder. Although this version isn't quite as fluffy as the original, it is much more healthy and very delicious! Give it a try! [More]

Mushroom Avocado and Sprout Crepes

Mushroom Avocado Sprout Crepes

These are great for a Sunday brunch, but this is also one of my wife's favorite dinners and it is fairly quick to prepare. They can be served with store bought poppy seed dressing or try my recipe for Orange Ginger Chia Dressing.

You will also need the recipe for Egg Free Crepes. [More]

Egg Free Crepes

Egg Free Crepes

What? You can make crepes without eggs? My French culinary instructor would not be happy! Sorry Chef Martial, but I no longer eat eggs :) The basic version is gluten free, but you can mix and match a variety of flours to make these crepes more interesting. Use this recipe for my Mushroom Avocado Sprout Crepes. [More]

Roasted pumpkin or other winter squash varieties

Baked Caramel Apple Custard

If you can't find canned pumpkin in the store, you can roast your own. You don't even need a pumpkin, you can use kabocha squash, butternut squash, acorn squash, or any of the other varieties of hard winter squashes available at your grocery store. If you do use pumpkin, it is important not to use the "jack-o-lantern" type pumpkins because they are stringy, bitter, and not grown for human consumption. Look for sugar or pie pumpkins for best results. My favorite squash to roast is kabocha squash, which is typically available all year long in Asian grocery stores. [More]
