This Gluten free Sweet Pastry Crust recipe it’s very handy in the kitchen. You can use it for pies, tarts, and any other thing that you would need a good pastry recipe.
It’s also very soft and easy to handle, which helps you to create different shapes or some nice decorations for your pies using cookie shape cutters. Ah! You can also make a chocolate version, just add some cocoa powder to it and it’s done!
1 cup of coconut flour
½ cup of tapioca starch
200g of unsalted butter, softened
2 tablespoons of coconut sugar (or any sweetener you like)
a pinch of salt
Add all ingredients in a food processor and put it to work until smooth. Tip: in case you want to make a chocolate version, just add 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder.
Grease a pie plate/tin and, using your fingers, press the mixture into it as evenly as possible.
Use a fork and make small vertical holes throughout the mixture, then pop it into the freezer for 1 hour before baking.
In a pre-heated oven, bake the frozen crust for 10 to 12 minutes at 180C.
Done! Let it cool down completely before adding your preferred filling.
You may have heard about zucchini noodles before. It’s also known by a variety of different other names (zoodles, zucchini pasta, zucchini spaghetti), but all of them are the same: a real food pasta made only using zucchinis.
That’s right, you need only a single ingredient – zucchini – to make your pasta. This is an amazingly healthy way to add more good stuff into your body!
Remember to also use your creativity to add extra flavour to it. You can top with a delicious homemade tomato sauce, add to a soup, mix with some fresh broccoli, garlic, olive oil, and chicken breast… Hmm, I’m already salivating here thinking about all the dishes I can make with it.
Salt and black pepper to taste
Wash your zucchinis. Cut off the ends and let’s start making our noodles.
There are many ways to make it. You can use a spiralizer, veggetti, grater or a knife. All these options will change the final looking of your noodle/pasta, but the taste will be essentially the same.
After you get it done, toss in a pan with some salt and pepper.
And it’s ready! Serve it with a delicious Homemade Tomato Sauce and garnished with shredded parmesan cheese. YUMMY!
