​Allium Free Tomato Sauce

20 Roma Tomatoes
2 Red Bell Peppers, diced

(1 lb ground beef, optional)

1 Bay leaf

2 Tbsps dried Basil

1 tsp dried Oregano

1/2 Tbsp honey

1/2 tsp Celtic Sea salt

Dash of cinnamon
Wash and remove the tops of the tomatoes then add them to a Vitamix blender and blend until the peels are completely unseen. (Or you can cook, cool and peel them but this way is faster)

Add algae oil to a large pot and cook the red bell peppers (and optional ground beef) until fully cooked. Pour in the blended tomatoes and add spices, Bay leaf and honey. 

Bring to a boil and then simmer on low for 40 to 60 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes or so. 

If you used a Vitamix, your sauce is ready. If you peeled the tomatoes, allow the sauce to cool a bit then use a stick blender to blend further. (If you must use a stick blender, I would recommend cooking the beef separately and adding it in after the sauce is blended)

Dairy Free Chipotle Cheese

Boil in large pot:

1 large Zucchini

5 Yellow Squash  

1 small Garnet Yam, peeled

Add one Bay leaf to the veggie pot and remove after they finish cooking.

1 Cup Nutritional Yeast 

1 tsp chipotle pepper flakes

2 ½ tsp Celtic Sea Salt

2 Tbsps + 1 tsp Lemon Juice

1 Cup of Water 

4 Tbsps Gelatin (heaping)

1 tsp Konjac Powder (heaping)

Cook zucchini, yellow squash, Bay leaf and yams in water until soft. Remove Bay leaf then add to the blender while they’re still warm. (I just washed my veggies, peeled the yam and then cut off the ends and boiled them whole. That way I could use tongs to pull them out of the water and put them into the blender.)

In a Vitamix Blender, add 1 cup water, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, chipotle flakes and blend until flakes anymore. Then add Zucchini, Yellow Squash, and Yam, Blend until thoroughly mixed.  Add Gelatin and Konjac and Blend again. Pour into a casserole or other recipe you are using it for or pour into a container and refrigerate until solid.

Vegan Buckwheat Gluten-Free Bread (no yeast)

3/4 Cup Sweet Potato Flour

3/4 Cup Authentic Foods White Rice Flour

1/4 Cup Tapioca Flour

2 Tablespoons Ground Chia seed

1 Tablespoon Konjac Glucomannan Powder

1 Tablespoon Cream of Tartar

1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Soda

1 teaspoons Celtic Sea Salt
In a measuring cup, add:

3 Tbsps ground chia seeds

9 Tbsps water

Pulse chia seeds and water with a stick blender on high until mixed.

Add chia/water mixture and Pulse again until mixed.
Take this time to Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and grease a glass loaf pan with Coconut Oil. When those 2 things have been completed, add wet ingredients to the Mixing bowl with the dry ingredients. Mix batter until it is completely mixed with no dry flour (a splash more water may be needed) then immediately pour into a greased loaf pan. Place the loaf pan in the 425-degree oven soon after the liquids have been added and mixed in order to get the best rise.

Bake for 45 minutes. Remove from oven. Slide knife blade between bread and glass loaf pan to loosen it from the sides if it sticks.  Immediately remove the loaf from the pan and place it on a wire cooling rack to finish cooling. (leaving it in will make it soggy) Allow loaf to cool for ONE FULL HOUR before slicing into it so as not to ruin the loaf. Store in the refrigerator in a ziplock bag or Tupperware container.
