Heya fellow plant munchers. How are you all today? My weekend started off just perfect with these homemade turmeric flatbreads loaded with a yummy kidney bean chili.

It's been a crazy busy week both at work and social life so the quiet 2-days off we have planned is more than welcome. Later today we go for a walk in the national park but apart from that, it is going to be home time.

Kitty cat is quite happy with that too. Oh my, how she has grown in the past few months. She's becoming a small black panther lol. The other day she caught a snake, which we were able to take away and save.

Beautiful little thing it was... though mildly poisonous.

Herb mix


1 tsp paprika powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tbsp cumin powder

Bell Pepper Cashew Sour Cream


1 cup raw unsalted cashew nuts soaked and drained
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
0.5-1 lime/lemon juice only, add to taste
Pinch sea salt
1/3-1/2 cup water coconut milk
1-2 tbsp nutritional yeast

Other cashew cream ingredients


Turmeric powder
Black Kampot pepper
yellow and red bell pepper
Homemade chili paste

FYI: soak cashew nuts for at least one hour, overnight is best to get the creamiest result. If you don't have much time soak them in hot water for 30-60 min.

FYI: I split up the basic cashew cream and made one enriched with turmeric and one with bell pepper. Cilantro would be a yummy addition too but my hubby hates the taste.

DIRECTIONS


Turmeric flatbreads


  1. Combine flour, yeast, sugar, herbs, and salt. Add a little lukewarm water and start kneading. Keep pouring the water, a little at a time. After kneading for a while, the dough should become an elastic ball. If it is too crumbly, add more water or when too moist add a little bit more flour. Divide into 9 to 10 smaller dough balls.
  2. Add the balls to an oiled or floured bowl covered with a clean kitchen towel. Let sit in a warm place for at least 20 minutes or until the dough doubles in size. FYI: If it is winter, turn the oven on for just a few minutes. Turn it off and let it rise there for a while.
  3. Dust your countertop or big cutting board with flour. Use a rolling pin or your hands to make circles out of the dough. Add a little flour to the rolling pin too.
  4. Add coconut oil to a pan and fry the flatbreads until browned on both sides.

The cashew cream


  1. Soak cashew for at least 1 hours. Overnight is best for a creamier texture.
  2. Combine all basic ingredients and blend until smooth.
  3. Divide mixture over 2 bowls and blend separately. One using turmeric and pepper to taste. One using red bell pepper, chili paste, and pepper to taste.

Sound like a great treat as usual Amy

Thanks my friend.

God that looks heavenly. Unfortunately it’s kind of difficult to find chili powder, here, in Costa Rica- weird right?!? I wonder if I could tweak that flat bread recipe using gluten free flour and omitted the yeast… what do you think? This entire dish is picture perfect @amy-goodrich. I wouldn’t mind breaking bread at the Goodrich house with plates like that 😉

·

One day we'll cook together. No chili powder is strange indeed. Do you have fresh chilis in Costa Rica? Going to experiment with gluten-free flours. A friend gave me a bag of physilium which acts as gluten to make bread. Update on that coming soon.

I can find chili’s once in a while. Where we are at the moment is pretty far removed so I have less access to Ingredients than before even. I did just find some chili’s in Panama that I’ve smuggled back. So for now those will have to work.

Cooking together would be a joy. How about we come to you in Cambodia… :)

I haven’t experimented with physillium husk yet but have found a ton of recipes that call for it. I bake everything gluten free so am constantly using almonds, coconut flour, or all purpose gluten free flour; cassava flour works too. Looking forward to your creation @amy-goodrich!

Looking for gluten-free flours too. Not easy in Cambodia. Oh BTW chili plants grow super fast en easy. You can plant some seeds of the ones you brought. They do wel in soil or pots. Have a lovely day xxx

Like how fast? We move month to month but next month we might stay out for a little. I’ll make sure to save some chili seeds. The easiest flour for me to find is cassava flour. I also just grind up almonds into a flour and use that. Haha… the compromises we have to make to live in paradise huh?!? :)

Yep... but loving it. and for chilis... not that fast lol.

You mean you don’t know how to grow over night chili’s? Haha
