Roasted Potatoes with Harissa

Roasted Potatoes with Harissa |

I have my weaknesses and potatoes top that list. I’m often the girl that orders/makes a perfectly good salad but will tack on an order of fries. I don’t discriminate either, any kind of potato will do- red, sweet, gold, russet. Each has a use in my kitchen. This recipe for roasted potatoes is a step up from my normal, plain roasted potatoes. While the harissa softens the crispness of the potato, the flavor makes up for it.

See the Recipe.

Quinoa Granola

Quinoa Flakes | http://naturallyella.comMaple Almond Quinoa Granola |

For most meals, I like a bit of unpredictability. My lunches are usually off the cuff with whatever I have in the house while my dinners are a bit more planned, but are still usually a trial run or test of a recipe I’m working on. Breakfast, however, is my constant. 95% of the time, it’s oatmeal, eggs, or granola + yogurt with the other 5% reserved for waffles, pancakes, and other rich breakfast foods. Breakfast is very predictable.

I do, however, like to mix things up a bit. My oatmeal toppings vary depending on what’s in season and eggs could take the form of an omelette or egg skillet. My granola is rarely made from just oats and more likely to contain an mix of grains. Or, it may be made entirely from something else, like this quinoa granola.

I have a different quinoa granola on the blog made from whole quinoa but this particular recipe utilizes quinoa flakes. I’ve used my favorite base granola recipe that contains minimal ingredients but provides enough glue to hold everything together. This quinoa granola isn’t overly powerful in flavor but instead, is a nice boost to a morning parfait or granola bowl.

See the Recipe.

Gluten Free Vegetable Buns + Amsterdam


As you can see from the photo above, we have been quite busy baking bread this weekend. These vegan and gluten free mini buns have been a family favourite for a while now. Some of you might remember seeing two photos (uno | due) on instagram at the start of the summer. These buns are perfectly tiny in size, very easy to prepare and contain no egg, butter or nuts nor any yeast or baking powder. Miracle bread, really. They don’t even need any kneading or leavening time. When baked right, they get a nice crust and a softly textured crumb without being gooey or dense. Since we always try to sneak in vegetables in every dish, we have done three different versions here: carrot & parsnip, spinach & banana and beet & date. And that is just the start, you can easily add whatever vegetables you have at home.

We are not specifically gluten free in our family, but for us this recipe is great as a lighter bread to mix up with rye bread, seed crackers and whatever else that makes it into our kitchen. The psyllium seed husks are very good for your gut, containing loads of fiber and the gluten free flours are also more easily digested than regular wheat flours. The buns have a touch of sweetness and are so great on a brunch or breakfast table with a slab of butter or some avocado slices. And they’re perfect in kids lunch boxes too. Even babies can enjoy them as there are no allergens in this recipe, just leave out the salt.



A few notes about this recipe

  • Don’t skip the psyllium husk! Not only is it really good for your gut, but psyllium is also the magic glue that hold the bread together, make them moist and not crumbly at all. There are lots of gluten free recipes using xantham gum or chia seeds but we encourage you to stick with psyllium on this one. Depending on where you live, it can usually be found in larger supermarkets, health food stores or online. It should also be a lot cheaper than chia seeds.
  • First time? If you’ve never baked or tasted gluten free bread before, don’t expect that it will taste exactly the same as when you use wheat flour. The texture is slightly different and so is the flavor. Not in a bad way, just a bit different. However, this recipe is truly one of the easiest and tastiest that we have tried.
  • Gooey? Sometimes the inside texture of the bun can end up a bit gooey. The most common reason for this is if you slice them open too early, you should always let the bread cool off a bit first so the inside will set properly. If they are still gooey, then either you have used too much liquid in the dough or the buns need longer baking time. If you have a baking thermometer you can stick it inside one of the buns, they should reach approx. 210°F / 100°C when they are done inside. We have experienced that the baking time can vary between 35 minutes and up to 60 minutes, depending on the oven, the size of the buns and how many sheets you are baking at the same time. If your bread ends up gooey, a last minute solution is always to put the slices in the toaster :)


Gluten Free Vegetable Buns
Makes 12-14 buns
The recipe is loosely adapted by the gluten free buns in this book by Anette Harbech Olesen

3 tbsp psyllium seed husks
2 cups / 1/2 liter lukewarm water or plant milk (plant milk is optional but gives the bread a slightly richer flavour)
150 g vegetables of choice, see note below
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp flaky sea salt
1 1/2 cup / 150 g rolled oats, choose cert, gluten free if intolerant
1 1/4 cup / 150 g buckwheat flour
1 1/4 cup / 150 g rice flour

Vegetable add-ins, choose one of these flavourings:
EITHER 1 carrot + 1 parsnip, grated (150 g)
OR 1 packed cup / 70 g fresh spinach, chopped + 1 banana, peeled and mashed
OR 1-2 beetroots, grated (130 g) + 6 dates, mashed and stones removed

1/4 cup / 30 g seeds of choice (sesame seeds, poppy seeds, chopped sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds)

Set the oven to 375°F / 190°C. Mix psyllium and water in a large bowl, stir to combine and leave for 15 minutes to thicken. Then beat the psyllium gel vigorously with a hand whisk for a few minutes to get as much air as possible into the gel. Add vegetables, salt and oil and whisk for another minute, making sure everything is combined. Fold in the oat and flours. You can use your hands to work the flours into the dough. Roll the dough into a log and divide into 12 equal pieces. Form small buns between your palms, dip your hands in warm water to avoid the dough to stick to them.
Brush with olive oil, sprinkle some seeds on top and bake for about 45-60 minutes (depending on size and oven), they are ready when the crust is golden and firm and the inside sounds hollow when you knock on the bread. If they have a soft crust, they need more time. Let cool before slicing them open. Enjoy with a slab of butter, nut butter or some avocado slices. Store in a bread jar or paper bag in room temperature. Or freeze, if you make larger batches.

Roasted Tomato Salsa
Prep time

Cook time

Total time


Serves: 2-3

  • 2 pounds roma tomatoes
  • 1 small white or yellow onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 jalapeño
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ⅓ cup cilantro leaves
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • Salt, to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 425˚. Halve the tomatoes, cut the onions and garlic into chunks and dice the jalapeño (removing seeds if desired). Toss everything with olive oil and spread into a single layer on a sheet tray covered with parchment paper. Roast for 45 to 60 minutes, until tomatoes are browning. Let roast until desired doneness (a little extra char is nice).
  2. Let tomatoes cool slightly then transfer to a blender or food process. Add in cilantro, lime juice, and salt. Pulse until salsa is broken down. Store in refrigerator for up to a week.

+ Original recipe has roasting the tomatoes at 500˚. This is great and definitely gets a wonderful flavor, but cleaning up the sheet pan is a pain (since you can’t use parchment!) If you’re up for the challenge, roast at 500˚ for about 30 minutes, checking occasionally, until tomatoes have a nice char on them.

+ For a little extra smokiness, add a bit of diced chile pepper (either in adobo sauce or a dried one that has been soaked in water). Start with just a bit and add more as desired for heat.

+Use other tomatoes as desired but try and stick with low water, paste tomatoes. These make for a thicker salsa.
