Lefse by Candlelight

The first try at making lefse turned out ok, though some things maybe are better left for purchasing at the market. The best result might have been the smell and experimenting with different ingredients to roll up in the lefse.

 

 

 

 

 

I really had no idea what I was doing, but made the dough, rolled it out as thin as I could, then cooked in the pan until golden and warm.

Roll the Lefse With:
Brunost (brown cheese) and cucumbers
Brown deli mustard and salmon, dill sprinkles

Topping tryout

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The best part of making pizza at home? Making it however you want!

Spread out the dough

Top with whatever tasty toppings you’ve got

Kidney beans and spring greens turned out totally delightful along with a mix of tomatoes and other delightfully common assortments

The sauce was made out of tomato paste and fresh herbs like basil, rosemary, thyme, and black pepper

Belly Soothing Baked Goods

Variation on bread or crackers-to put honey on, dip in soups, have with coffee, or settle an upset stomach. Plain and versatile!

Belly Soothing Baked Goods

Mix together

Rice flour (about 2C)

Oats (the quick or long cooking kind, as long as the grain is flat, gluten-free to keep the recipe celiac friendly)

Add a dash of sea salt

Make a bowl shape in the bowl

Whisk together three eggs, then mix into the flour with enough water to make the dough wet and spreadable

Tin foil or parchment line a baking tray, spread out olive or coconut oil to grease.

 

Bake for about 40min at 400C, less for chewy, more for crisp results.
