2014-09-14_16-45-05I’ve been cooking around my food sensitivities and my husband’s for years, and got a cookbook contract last March.
Why me – a first time author?
Because I’ve created a variety of bread that I call bread-free breads. These breads are grain-free, gluten-free, yeast-free, and sugar-free, because they’re made mainly from vegetables and seeds.
Try this easy recipe for Garlic Onion Bread:

2 cups raw, shell-free sunflower seeds
2 cups golden flaxseed meal
2 tablespoons fresh or dried dill
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt

2 cups chopped yellow onion
10 garlic cloves
1 cup liquid egg whites
2 tablespoons vinegar

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Cover a 12×17-inch baking sheet (jelly roll pan) with Pan Lining Paper, foil side down.
  • Press the paper into the form of the baking sheet.
  • Grind sunflower seeds into processor, personal blender, or coffee/spice grinder.
  • In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients.
  • Blend wet ingredients thoroughly in blender.
  • Transfer the wet ingredients to the bowl of dry ingredients. Mix quickly and well.
  • With a spatula, scrape the batter on to the prepared baking sheet, push the mixture to the edges, and then level the thickness.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until center is dry to the touch.
  • Place upside down on pan and paper. Let cool.
  • After cooling, cut into desired pieces, or use as pizza crust. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
  • The new cookbook will be released November 1. My hope is that in the near future, you’ll be making your own breads from whole vegetables and seeds – and so will locally owned restaurants. (And for dessert lovers, most of the desserts in the cookbook are also sugar-free and nut-free.)
