So Here it goes:

Ingredients:

Preparation:

In a bowl add the dry Yeast and 1/3 cup of the water at room temperature. Let it sit there for about 20 minutes, just to make sure the yeast is active. After that add the honey.

Turn on your oven and set it to 300 F degrees.

In a separate bowl add all the egg whites including the ones from the two whole eggs and whip them until you have stiff peaks. (I use a hand blender for that)  At this point you can add the arrowroot flour one tablespoon at a time until it is all well incorporated to the egg whites. (I use the same hand blender to do it) Now you should have really stiff peaks!

Go back to the bowl with the yeast and add the rest of the water, the two egg yolks, the salt, the essential oils, the sprouted rice flour and the olive oil. Mix well.

Grease and flour your baking dish. If you prefer you can line it with parchment paper to make sure nothing gets stuck. (If you line your baking dish there is no need to grease and flour it)

At this point slowly add the egg whites mixture to your yeast mixture or vice-versa. Do not use a blender for this as it will cause for all the great hair bubble to dissipate. Just gently fold the two mixture together by adding maybe a cup at a time.

Once it is all combined you are done, just poor the mixture in your baking dish and put in the oven. The mixture will be very runny, do not be afraid, it is supposed to be!

Bake at 300 F degrees for 1 hour.

Homemade Pesto

Homemade Pesto

I love making my own Pesto sauce! It is really easy to make and it tastes so fresh! So much better then the stuff you buy premade from the store, that to me doesn’t even taste like pesto. Put all ingredients in your food processore and blend for a minute. That’s it!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup of Fresh Basil Leaves (Pressed firmly)
  • 1 Cup of Fresh Parsley Leaves (Pressed firmly)
  • 1/2 Cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 Tbsp of Pumpkin Seeds
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic
  • 1 Drop Basil Essential Oil
  • 2 Drops Lime Essential Oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Homemade PestoI like to use pumpkin seeds instead of the traditional pine nuts. Pumpkin seeds have a lot of nutritional and health benefits associated with them. They are packed with magnesium, manganese, copper, protein, zinc, phytosterols, antioxidants and lots of fiber.

You can store the left over in your refrigerator. Use it to make the traditional Pesto Pasta or add to your sauces as a flavor enhancer!

You can also add a tablespoon or so to your homemade Hummus to create your own Pesto Hummus!
