When's the last time you had a bagel?

When you add your baking soda, your water will fizz like this.
How rude of me to post a picture and not give the recipe. Seriously. Sorry about that folks. So here's the secret recipe that's not so secret anymore ;) It's the yummy cornbread that was pictured with my taco soup in my last post.
In this recipe, it features Bob's 1:1 baking flour. I included a picture so you can easily find it in your local grocery store. If you live in Utah-the Salt Lake City Costco sells this flour in BULK so I can score a ginormous bag for $36. That's pure gluten free happiness right there! Enjoy!
You can thank Costco... and my bad memory... for this next recipe. Ever forget you already bought something only to buy it again? ...And again? And how about one more time? Ha ha. That would be me. I am now the proud owner of 3 cases of diced tomatoes. lol! Oh well, you know what they say, "One woman's mistake is another woman's recipe for dinner." K, I just made that up but you get the point. Here's what I created from my mishap. It's actually one of our favorites now. Serendipitous I'd say. Enjoy!
Easy Taco Soup
Serves about 6-8
Brazilian Cheese Rolls
Holy cow folks. Where have I been? Where does the time go? Two more kids later and here I am! Busy mom but still gluten free and lovin' it. And do I have a great new recipe for you. It's an easy throw together when you need a quick side dish for soup or pasta. If you've never tried these before, the texture is different than a roll. They'r crisp like a puff shell or popover on the outside but the inside is airy, chewy, and cheesy goodness.
Dairy Free? Don't worry, I figured out that out too. Simply see the note at the bottom.
Makes 24 mini muffins
Don't worry, I figured out a way to leave out the cheese. So...that's Cheese-Free Brazilian Cheese Rolls, right? Lol. But it works. Simply omit the 1/2 cup cheese and 1 tsp salt and instead add in 1 and 1/2 tsps of garlic salt. Bake these for only 12-15 minutes- otherwise they'll turn hard. ;)

You know those crazy little green and orange discs you see in the grocery store called Lentils? Who knew they make an amazing Meatless Taco. In fact, our family loves it so much we PREFER it over regular tacos. Not only is it cheaper to make than using meat but it's also healthier for you! If you haven't ever tried lentil tacos give this one a try...it just might change the way you think about those crazy little green discs!
Some of you might be saying I don't even know what a lentil is! Well to be honest I didn't either before I started cooking Gluten-Free! You can find them down the bean section of your grocery store and they are super cheap. It's crazy but you can get 63% of your daily fiber from 1 cup of lentils and 18 grams of protein! They are also very high in iron. You can see all the facts about them by clicking HERE.
We eat this in taco shells, tostadas or on chips with romaine lettuce, avocado, and salsa. They are amazing! If you are not concerned about being dairy-free, cheese is great on them as well.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the fridge.

How to squeeze out my Easy Gluten Free Breadsticks:
How to smooth out the tops and edges of the Breadsticks:
Demo on greasing the breadsticks:
I had never attempted breadsticks before this point but decided to use my Quick Gluten Free Dinner Roll recipe as the base. They turned out fantastic! Even the non-gluten-free eaters were loving them! Get this- my biggest critic- even had 3! ;)
The bag method I use for these is super easy. It just takes a steady hand of squeezing. ;)
These breadsticks are gluten and dairy free but if you can eat butter- they're all the yummier!
Easy Gluten Free Breadsticks
Created by jalene
Yields over 20 Breadsticks (5 to 6 inches long)
- 2 Tbsp yeast
- 1 & 1/4 cup warm water (110 degrees)
- 6 Tbsp grapeseed oil
- 1/4 cup sugar (I use evaporated cane juice sugar)
- 2 cups brown rice flour
- 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp potato starch
- 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp tapioca starch
- 1 & 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 2 eggs
- Garlic Salt
- For dairy Free: 1/4 cup extra grapeseed oil OR melted Earthbalance OR
- for dairy infested: 1/4 cup melted butter
- Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets.
- Whisk together the yeast and warm water. Add in the grapeseed oil and sugar. Cover with a towel and allow to double in size while you measure out your dry ingredients.
- In a mixer combine the brown rice flour, potato starch, tapioca starch, xanthan, and salt. When the yeast mixture is ready, add it and the eggs to the dry ingredients. Mix on low speed for 30 seconds then turn up the speed to medium and continue mixing for 2 & 1/2 more minutes.
- Immediately scoop the dough into a large ziplock bag. Seal the bag completely and cut off one of the corners opposite of the seal. I found 1 inch makes perfect Olive Garden size breadsticks. (The cut off part should be a triangle.)
- Steadily squeeze out the dough onto your prepared pan in your desired length. I made mine about 5 inches long. Smooth any rough edges with water-wet fingers.
- Top the breadsticks with half of the melted butter or Earthbalance. Allow them to sit 5 minutes than bake 8-12 minutes or until the breadsticks are golden brown.
- Immediately top with the remaining butter and sprinkle on the garlic salt.
For leftovers: allow the breadsticks to cool completely before storing in a ziplock bag. I try to use these within 1-2 days, otherwise they tend to dry out. They also can be frozen for later use! Simply freeze them the day you make them for optimal freshness.
I was a little skeptical of this next recipe because it's main ingredient are nuts. I'm not a huge nut fan by any means. But goodness sakes. Pecans, butter and sugar- all baked together- create this magical flavor. It's so good, it's changing my mind about ol' nuts.
This crust works best with a custard style pie. I've tried apple pie and pumpkin pie but the crust tends to get a little mushy with those. A cheesecake would be yummy with it too!
It's really simple to throw together. No rolling. Just press it into you pan. Enjoy!
Grain Free Pecan Pie Crust
- In a food processor grind your nuts, cinnamon and sugar together until it resembles a meal. Mix in the melted butter until well combined.
- Press the mixture into your pie pan. Chill the crust for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Place the crust on a cookie sheet in the middle rack of your oven and bake about 15 minutes or until lightly brown. Watch carefully, nuts burn easily. Cool completely before filling.
