Lets make some spinach croissants!
pillsbury collage 1.5

* Yields 8

INGREDIENTS

1 pillsbury crescent roll tube

1/2 a bundle of spinach washed and chopped

1/4 cup of tahini

2 cloves of garlic

4-5 mushrooms

olive oil or any oil of choice

Braggs liquid soy  or soy sauce

2 splashes of water

LET’S DO IT!

Preheat your oven to 375

* If you have never worked with this dough before it needs to be kept refrigerated up until use.  Exposure to air makes it delicate, but don’t worry they don’t have to be perfect!

Unroll the dough carefully , trying not to stretch the dough too much! It’s perforated  so the “hard part” is all done for you.  : )

Separate the triangles and place them on a greased cookie sheet.

toss all other ingredients into a blender making sure to evenly disperse the liquids , and to add the spinach bits at a time to save your blenders motor.

Blend until a creamy paste is achieved. ** Be careful the mixture doesn’t end up too thin. — if it does, you can always add more spinach to hopefully thicken it up.

We’re ready to go!!

Place one and a half dollops  of the mixture onto the larger end of each dough triangle , and loosely roll to the small point.

The oven is ready to go ! Toss ’em in for 10-12 minutes and get ready to enjoy!!

Who wants to split a peas of pizza with me?

This one goes out to you gluten free buddies !

I wanted to make a pizza.I don’t like cheese or fake cheese, and would rather avoid soy if i can… So i thought to myself, what can I use as a protein for my pizza, without using soy products. I started thinking and thinking … and then it came to me! what if the protein was in the dough!? ! : )

… And thus split pea pizza dough/crust  was born!

Split pea flour is naturally processed and has a high protein content, so you can feel good about eating dishes made with it.

 

What yah knead

Split pea flour  1 cup

chives  a handful * you can also use onions

avocado 1/2

seasalt  to taste

Almond milk 3/4 of a cup… add more as needed

garlic 2-3 gloves diced

basil 4-5 leaves rolled and diced

tomato 4-5 cherry tomatoes cut in half

zucchini  I did a few zucchini ribbons on top . * to acheive this effect you your carrot peeler , or if you like a cheese grater is a great way to shred zucchini. You can pretend it’s cheese!

mushrooms 1-2 sliced

**It ends up being more of a savory pastry crust, so it is best served hot **

I made a personal size, since I wasn’t completely  convinced my project would work, but believe you me… this puppy is filling!!

Lets get to it!

* Preheat your oven to 450.

I started with 1 cup of split pea flour added a tea spoon of baking powder ,sea salt and a handful of fresh chives .

Slowly pour in almond milk, mixing as you pour * don’t worry if you add too much just add a bit more flour ; p. You will know once the flour and milk is mixed enough as all the dry flour will be gone : 0

Fun time!!

Cover  your hands in split pea flour and begin to knead the dough. * I’ll  be honest, I didn’t do much kneading, this kind of flour doesn’t really knead it : )

a ha ha ha

Form a ball with the dough and press it down on a greased baking sheet. Grab a mason jar or a rolling pin and flatten the dough into a small round circle about an inch thick.

I then placed the crust in the oven whilst I chopped my vegemables, garlic and herbs.

Remove the crust from the oven . Spread a layer of the chopped garlic and basil on the bottom with a dash of olive oil.  add on your veggies. I placed the avocado on after the pizza was cooked but if you do want it cooked along with the pizza, I suggest putting it on for the last 5 minutes only : )

..aannd Yeah   bake for 15-20 minutes, but keep an eye on it depending on your oven it may take less time.

Enjoy hot, enjoy a full belly.

And peas…. split with your friends

sharing is fun : D
