After short break I am back on my ‘clean diet’. I call it this way because I do feel clean within while on it. There is no dairy, gluten, wheat or sugar. I am more present and patient while on it. My whole family benefit from it. Everything is more vibrant so I call it simple clean.
Today I did wanted something starchy and crunchy like nice crispy slice of bread. My husband love to experiment with flat brads. For him that is fun. So I asked him to make some for me while I was busy making cooked apples for breakfast for boys. Daddy decide to get some help in this undertaking. Our two year old Mila was more then willing for the task.
This is how it looks when you make everything from scratch.
You blend omega flaxseeds for Omega fatty acids.
Some millet for calcium and nice smooth digestion.
Then same amount of barley. Ideal grain for Sping season since it pacifies Kaffa dosha very well.
Yole decided to add the rye berries as well. Because the germ and bran in the endosperm remain during processing, rye retains its many nutrients which include fiber, protein, potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, vitamin B-1, folic acid, thiamin, niacin and antioxidants.
Next he added some spices. His favorite thing to do while making any kind of bread. This time it was cumin, brown mustard seeds and some ajwan. Right then I was able to hear loud VitaMix motor. In seconds these grains became fine powder.
Something like this.
Mila was eagerly waiting for this soft flour. Anticipating to touch it, squeeze it. There is where magic began.
Then when dough started looking like this…
We left it a side to rest for a morning. About hour or two. Then it was ready to roll. I used some rice flour while rolling so doesn’t stick on the counter top or the rolling pen. Then it was fried in the iron pan with some coconut oil. It turned out pretty good. Crispy and tender at the same time.
It was awesome addition to our lunch today. It also satisfied all my cravings for bread. Thanks to my dear husband and Mila off course!
