• Grain Free Koshari

    Grain-Free Koshari. All lentils here, including the pasta. I thought I had cauliflower to make the rice base but, just kidding to myself, because I didn’t. If you eat rice, make a rice base. If you don’t eat rice, make a cauliflower rice base. If you don’t have rice or cauliflower, skip the rice. Macaroni, I used lentil pasta. Ingredients: Just lentils. You could forgo this pasta shape and use…

  • Crispy Tuna Wrap

    Scavenging a meal over here, Guys. Realizing it’s one of those days where the private chef has a sad looking pantry. A quick scan and my eyes found a can of tuna and cassava root flour, so I built upon that. The “bread” is @ottos_cassava_flour, onion powder, walnut oil (because I’m even out of evoo, *ahem* @kasandrinos), water, salt. Pan fried in a cast iron until the outside is flaky-crispy-yummy.…

    Crispy Plantain Bun. Tahini Tuna. Tomato. Avocado. Onions. Uber satisfying substitute for the traditional Tuna Melt that has 2 ingredients I’m intolerant to, gluten and cheese. Whomp, whomp.
