Alright, so, eating paleo means you cut out things like sugar, dairy and beans, but another thing you cut out is grains. I really didn't care much about that last one because I've never really been a huge grain lover. Well, I loooves me some grilled cheese, but that's not just regular toast or a sandwich; it exists all by itself as a delectable food, so, yup.
Anyway, not having bread and buns, etc., didn't bother me. But one day I had made some fantastic soup and thought, "....gee, something to dip into this would sure be swell" (o.k., maybe I didn't talk like that, but it makes a better story). So because the soup was ready before it was actually dinnertime I started to experiment.
Truth time: my first 2 attempts at some sort of "roll" were terrible. I threw them into our "chicken bowl" (aka-our compost-aka-what we feed our chickens!). :)
But, the second bun was better than the first, so I thought third time could be the charm, and it was! Oh it was!!! It was soft, but could hold it's own, and was just what my soup needed! So many exclamation marks in this post!!! Sorry!!!!! haha...oh man...
I still don't crave bread and buns, but having a recipe to use when you do want it is awesome! I felt like eating a burger with my hands and not completely bun-free with a knife and fork, so I whipped a double batch of bun and it made my (grumpy, pre-period) day! Over share? My bad.
The Amazing Paleo Bun
(This makes one bun with 1/2 inch pieces when sliced in half. Double recipe for a thicker bun as I did in the photos). I like a double bun for a burger, but just a single bun if I want something to dip into soup. :)
The picture above shows how these buns are soft and flexible, and not crumbly and weird!
Well, I'm off! I'm feeling kinda lazy, but laziness is not an option today, unfortunately! (thumbs down).
I hope everyone has a good weekend!
