Yes, gluten free. The past week or so I have been having tummy issues (every time I eat, it hurts!), so I have decided to experiment by going on a gluten-free diet to see if it helps my poor tummy.
This means my last, yummy cornbread recipe is off the menu, right?
It turned out great! I might have liked it even better than my original recipe. The brown rice flour made it a bit fluffier, but it still had that authentic “corny” taste.
Also, a shout out to Krystal for converting my cornbread recipe to gluten-free with her own style:
Now, onto a gluten-free breakfast crepe:
HEAB has been taunting me nonstop with her flourless crepes. I have made a few of them, and simply spread some coconut butter on it. These crepes haven’t been too special, but today’s was especially noteworthy.
Savory Carb-Free Crepe
~This crepe is free of carbs, gluten-free, dairy-free, and of course, sugar-free! It is great for a fancy luncheon or brunch, but quick and easy for any meal during the week.
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- salt and pepper (I used about 1/8 teaspoon of each)
- Tablespoon of fresh herbs of choice (Today I used fresh cilantro leaves, but oregano, thyme, or basil would work great, too!)
- Fillings: I used sliced bell peppers, tomatoes, red onions, spinach, and capers.
Using a dab of olive oil, lightly coat a skillet (I used my cast-iron) with the oil. Heat pan on medium heat. Next, in a small bowl, whisk the eggs, herbs, baking powder, and salt and pepper together. Pour the mix into the pre-heated skillet and cover. Let the crepe bake until the top gets bubbly and fluffy, there is no need to flip it. Carefully remove the crepe from the skillet-try hard not to break it because it is just so darn pretty! Then fill with your favorite fillings and wrap it up! Top with more herbs for a beautiful garnish.
Thought-provoking, mind-prodding question of the day:
Have you ever gone on a gluten-free diet? I actually tested myself a few years ago, and went on a semi-gluten-free diet for a little while. I just like to challenge myself, and try new things!
