some sort of squash? a piece of meat? eggplant? bread made with almond flour? use your imagination.
Charge it to your 20%?
Good question. My soups are usually thick and chunky enough that I don't miss the bread. But I guess lots of people would. Can't think of anything that would really take the place of it in terms of comfort food except a paleo bread like almond.
Ancestral Health Info
I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.
Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.
I totally know what you mean, but bread ain't primal. Bread dipping is just a habit (and french bread is my heroin). If you eat dairy, have a nice piece or two of some really strong/sharp cheese: cheddar, manchego or asiago--take a bite of it between bites of soup. Don't need eat a lot of cheese if it is strong, and sharp cheeses hold up well against soup/stew dishes. And IMO better than bread, especially high end older ones (good enzymes, help digestion, I believe).
Also, maybe some crunchy raw apple?
pork rinds? i dunno. bread was always my "butter carrier", so now i just eat the butter or add it to my soup.
My primal journal!
I add ham mayo and must. toast in pan w/butter taste just like a grilled cheese ..... some people like them hot out of oven
we seem to like them air dried for a day more like a bread.
sometimes last few min's in oven I will pull out top w/ graded cheese they hold up for sans and burgers better
tried to add pic,if you want to see what they look like just google oppsies it will come up.
Oopsie Rolls (Gluten-Free Buns)
3 large eggs
pinch of cream of tartar (1/8 tsp)
3 ounces cream cheese (Do not soften)
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Separate the eggs and add cream cheese to the yolks. Use a mixer to combine the ingredients together. In a separate bowl, whip egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff (if you're using the same mixer, mix the whites first and then the yolk mixture). Using a spatula, gradually fold the egg yolk mixture into the white mixture, being careful not to break down the whites. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray and spoon the mixture onto the sheet, making 6 mounds. Flatten each mound slightly.
Bake about 30 minutes (You want them slightly softer, not crumbly). Let cool on the sheet for a few minutes, and then remove to a rack and allow them to cool. Store in a loosely open sack and allow to rest on the counter before use (otherwise they might be too moist). Can be frozen.
Notes: If you are making these to be savory (for burgers) you can add dry mustard and dill or other seasonings to the yolk mixture. If you want a more sweet roll, add a very small amount of stevia natural sweetener to the yolk mixture.
Makes 6 Induction Friendly, Gluten-Free rolls.
