Hey Hey Happy Tummies! How was everyone’s weekend!?
Weekends in NY are always too short :) Big week ahead though!
I’d like to wish a Happy Hanukkah to those celebrating this week!
So tonight, I thought I’d share my Mexican Guacamole Flatbread! It was sooooo fresh and tasty! A crunchy millet crust, topped with guac, and roasted spicy broccoli and cauliflower!
And it’s gluten free, and Body Ecology Diet friendly with a Vegan option!
Here’s what you need: (Serves 1)
1/4 cup millet cooked in
1/2 cup veg stock
1 1/2 Tbsp Almond flour
1 egg white (Vegan Option: 1 flax/chia egg)
1 cup broccoli, broken into florets
1 cup cauliflower, broken into florets
1/4 red onion, sliced thin
1 green onion, sliced
squeeze of lime
1 – 2 Tbsp red onion, minced
1 garlic clove, grated
1 – 2 Tbsp cilantro, minced
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Cook your millet until it absorbs all the liquid, about 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork, and set aside to cool. Cut 2 medium-sized rectangles of parchment paper. Once millet is cooled, combine in a bowl with your egg, almond flour, and salt. Mix well to combine. Then, place mixture on one piece of parchment paper. Place the other sheet on top, and then “smoosh” it out as thin as you can. Leave the top paper on (it’ll be like a parchment paper sandwich), and bake for about 35 minutes, until the edges are a dark golden brown.
Meanwhile, roast your cauliflower and broccoli. Place the florets on an olive-oil-sprayed baking sheet. Spritz them with olive oil, and sprinkle them with salt, pepper, and your spices. (Only use a PINCH of garlic powder — it is VERY potent!!) Bake for about 20 minutes, until nice and golden and roasted!
Also, make your guac. Combine all your ingredients in a bowl, and smash your avocado with the back of a fork. Mmmm!
Finally, soak your onion slices in ice water for about 10 minutes – this gets rid of that bitter onion-y bite!
To assemble, spread your guac on your flat bread. Top with your veggies, and garnish with green onions and cilantro. YUMMO!
This meal was super! It was like a nacho pizza! The millet crust was so crunchy and wonderful while the guacamole was luxuriously rich and creamy! And the roasted veggies had a wonderful tender bite to them — fabulous!
And the flavors were just outstanding! I’m crazy for anything “Mexican!” I love the bright freshness of guacamole combined with the smokey-spice of the broccoli and cauliflower. It’s so clean and healthy while being out-of-this-world flavorful!
And finally, it was a beautiful dish with the different shards of green, orange and purple — stunning:)
What are you looking forward to this week?
Until Next Time!
