Grain Free Pasta Cookbook

Grain Free Pasta Recipes

16 Feb

Gosh! I’ve been so busy working on my new ebook cook book. It is short but it contains some great grain free pasta and pizza recipes (as well as few other gems). This stuff is so good! I’ve been eating it daily for about 3 months now…. not that I recommend that, but I had to make each recipe umpteen million times to make sure I got it just right. So needless to say, my family and I are ready to eat something besides Italian food for a while. lol

Anyhow, although I’ve been eating pizza and pasta every night, I also haven’t gained a single pound. I would say it’s because this stuff has only half the starch as regular pasta… also, the healthy fat that it contains will also help slow down digestion, making it much lower on the GI scale than regular pasta.

It’s also really filling. I found that I got really full, really fast eating this stuff.

Here’s a nutritional breakdown:

So, the ebook should be out before the end of the month. It’s a very short collection of recipes. Less than 20. But I think that they are a gold mine of possibilities and endless variations.

If you want to keep updated as to when the ebook comes out, make sure you sign up for my emails.

So, here’s a recipe that in the book. A sneak preview so to speak…

Nope. not another cauliflower crust. lol for this one NO fork and knife are required. The crust stands up to my fairly hefty toppings.

INGREDIENTS

 

8 oz of cream cheese

1 egg

1  1/2 cup almond flour

1 cup ground flax

1/2 tsp sea salt

 

DIRECTIONS

 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium size bowl, cream the cream cheese. Add egg.
Mix in remaining ingredients. The dough will be sticky.
Place dough on a parchment lined pizza baking sheet (mine is about 14″ round). Cover with another piece of parchment and roll out to edges of pie pan. I started with a rolling pan, but I finished it off using my fingers.
Bake in oven for approximately 20-25 minutes until the crust is dry but not too browned.
Remove from oven. Top with traditional pizza toppings (I made a turkey cheeseburger pizza).
Pop it back in the oven for approximately 10 minutes until cheese is gooey. The flash up the broiler for 2-3 minutes to give the cheese a nice golden brown colour.
Serves 8
