Gluten Free Roasted Vegetable Pizza

I LOVE pizza, who doesn't?! but I haven't really been able to make it since I started the gluten free diet. I took the plunge and I'm so glad I did, because even the dough has an AWESOME protein level.

DOUGH:

2 cups almond flour

1 egg

1 tbsp coconut oil

Pinch of salt

Pinch of rice flour

TOPPING:

2 tbsp pesto (thanks Food Network)

Handful of shredded cheese

3 mini bell peppers, sliced

3/4 cup artichoke hearts

Salt and Pepper

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. In a medium sized bowl mix all dough ingredients (excluding the rice flour). Add the rice flour to a board, and roll out your dough until it's about 8 inches. Bake in oven for five minutes. Take out, and add all of the pesto, smooth out so that it's covering the entire crust. Add the rest of the ingredients in layers, and let cook in the oven for another 20 minutes or until crust browns just slightly. Enjoy!

Carrot Soup

Ahhh, Fall. Perfect soup weather, so I of course, make as many different types of soup I can possibly. Today, is carrot soup day. Hooray!

INGREDIENTS:

6-8 carrots (peeled and chopped)

1/2 tsp ginger (minced)

1/2 cup coconut milk

3 cups chicken broth

Salt to taste

In a large pot, add all ingredients, and let cook over a medium heat for about an hour. Pour the contents into a food processor. Blend well. Throw it back in the pot, and cook until desired heat. Serve, and enjoy!

Chai Pancakes

Okay, so all of these Chai recipes have got me drooling! You too? I love spices, so when I first tried a chai latte, I kinda flipped out. I went home, and started making everything I could possible make using Chai! 

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup GF pancake mix

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp cardamom

Pinch allspice

Pinch black pepper

2 eggs

1 cup almond milk

1 tbsp coconut oil

1 tbsp vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly. Heat a large pan, and add coconut oil to grease it. Spoon about 1/4 cup batter, and let cook until golden brown on either side. Serve hot, and I think honey was better than maple with these bad boys!
