I know it doesn’t sound fabulous… but trust me this one is good. It’s a nutritious alkaline bread can be used in soooo many different ways from tortillas, pizzas, sandwiches to simple bread. My personal lunch favourite (lost count how many times I’ve eaten it this month) is adding sliced avocado, tomatoes and a drizzle of olive oil with black peppar ….and other times a tasty hummus (see Roasted Garlic Beetroot Hummus).
It only takes 5 mins to whip together which you know is often a priority for me. In this recipe I’ve used oat flour but other substitutes such as chickpea flour work well too. I seriously didnt know what a versatile vegetable cauliflower could be! (see Moroccan Couscous and Grilled Cauliflower recipes too.)
Start by rinsing and chopping the cauliflower. I blitz it in the blender at high speed for 10 seconds until it has the texture of sand.
Add in the eggs and oregano, sweet paprika, black peppar and himalayan salt. I usually don’t use eggs in any recipes on my blog as that’s the beauty of this challenge – trying to cook without dairy or animal products which are all acid. You can easily substitute the eggs for flax eggs (made from ground flaxseeds and water) to make it 100% alkaline but as the remaining ingredients are all alkaline, I’ve added in a little flexibility here and used eggs (as per 70-30 rule).
Mix well then add the oat flour and mix again. Form into 8 palm size balls then flatten out on the lined baking tray.
Cook in oven for 15 mins then flip over for another 10-15 mins until golden brown.
Then top with your favourite alkaline topping such as hummus or avocado and tomatoes… I’ve just made another batch whilst typing up this post. Hope you give it a try and enjoy!
