    Doris Kinney  Well Seasoned

    • 1 cup brown rice flour
    • 2 Tablespoon Arrowroot
    • 1/4 cup potato starch
    • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
    • 1/4 cup millet flour
    • 1/2 cup chia seed flour, or almond flour
    • 1 3/4 teaspoon  guar gum  or Chia seed gel—(9 parts water to 1 part seeds set for 15 minutes)
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2 1/4 teaspoon yeast
    • 2 Tablespoon honey
    • 1 cup water, warm or as needed
    • 3 large eggs
    • 3 Tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

    Proof yeast using 1/2 c warm water plus 1 T honey. Set aside.   Grease an 8×4 loaf pan.  Combine flours, arrowroot, potato starch, xantham and salt. Set aside.   In a small bowl mix eggs, oil vinegar and remaining agave.  Add remaining water to dry ingredients.  Add wet ingredients and yeast mixture to dry ingredients.

    Use either stand mixer or hand mixer on low to combine then raise to medium for 4 minutes.   Turn dough into prepared pan. Cover with plastic wrap. Let rise till either doubled in bulk or within 1/4 inch from top of pan. Should be between 15-30 minutes.
    Preheat oven to 375 when bread has risen to 3/4 inch from top of pan.   Bake 50-60 minutes covering with foil after 20 minutes.  I get best results at 60 minutes
    with my oven.   Remove from oven and allow to cool 20 minutes before cutting.

  • Poached Eggs Over Sauteed Greens

    • 4 free range chicken eggs
    • 1 teaspoon light vinegar (rice, apple cider, or white wine)
    • About 4 cups water
    • 1 cup thinly sliced leeks, white part only
    • 6 medium cloves garlic, sliced
    • 4 cups chopped kale
    • 3 +1 tablespoons chicken broth
    • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • salt and black pepper to taste


    Bring water and vinegar to a fast simmer in a skillet large enough to fit eggs.  Make sure there is enough water to cover eggs.  While water is coming to a simmer, heat 1 tablespoon broth in a separate stainless steel 10-12 inch skillet.  Saute sliced leeks in broth over medium heat for about 3 minutes.  Add garlic slices and continue to saute stirring constantly for another minute.

    Add kale, broth, and lemon juice, and simmer covered on medium low heat for about 10 minutes stirring occasionally.  When done season with salt and pepper.

    Poach eggs until desired doneness.  This will take about 5 minutes, or just until the white is set and the yolk has filmed over.  Do not add any salt to the poaching water for the eggs.  Salt has a tendency to dissolve the egg whites.  Remove from vinegar water with slotted spoon and place on top of a towel first before placing on the greens.

  • Poached Egg

    • 1 egg
    • 1 slice sprouted grain bread, or gluten-free bread
    • Fresh herbs-dill, thyme, basil

    Boil an inch or more of water in a small frying pan. Crack an egg into the boiling water, cover, and turn to simmer for a minute or longer depending on how you like your egg. Spoon out egg onto toasted, buttered, whole grain bread or gluten-free bread. Garnish with herbs. Add greens such as spinach with the meal.
