It all started on a rainy, rainy day… instead of running, I pushed up my sleeves, tied back my hair and got to work in the kitchen. I was supposed to be washing dishes but instead I was dreaming about naturally gluten-free nut and seed bread… I left my post at the sink and started blending nuts and seeds into a fine powder and away we go!
I had used a recipe a couple weeks ago that I thought I could “tweak” a bit and as per my usual, my “tweaking” became a whole new recipe!
As my new creation was baking away so nicely at 350 degrees for 50 minutes, my eyes wandered to the avocado on my counter and the chic peas I had out to make hummus… alas, I had new plans!
I give you Smashed Chic Pea Guacamole and Super Nutty Seed Bread!
This is very exciting, I actually just said “This is kick-ass!” out loud… in my kitchen… by myself…?
