Sourdough starter simpler than you think :)

I had to change my diet 😦 Well It’s not sad news – I will be eating healthier but new diet means pretty much I need to avoid almost all already prepared food and cook everything for myself. I cannot eat anything that contains sugar, yeast, vinegar or wheat flour. 

So I decided I will bake my own bread but with sourdough starter – NO YEAST
How to make a sourdough starter? Easy peasy, check the instructions below πŸ™‚

  1. Day One

Scald a big glass jar – 1l / 0,5l capacity. Mix well just two ingredients and put them into the jar:

  • 125 ml cup rye flour
  • 125 ml warm filtered water

Cover it with linen tea towel, put in a warm place. I usually do that in the morning, in the evening I stir the dough again. 


      2. Day Two

In the morning I add to the jar the same amount of the flour and water as yesterday and mix it Well. Set aside. Stir again in the evening or earlier it the dough is running away from the jar. πŸ˜‰


      3. Day Three

Feed the dough same way as on the day two. After three hours it’s ready for baking! πŸ™‚ Notice: only when there are air bubbles in!

Coconut and banana pudding – dairy-freeΒ 

To be honest when I read the recipe and it said you can make great pudding using millet, I was sceptical…. untill I tried it! 

It is soooo tasty πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ™‚ 


Just cook the millet, blend it with bananas and voile! 

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup of millet 
  • 400 ml coconut milk
  • 2 bananas
  • vanilla bean
  • 2 tbsp xylitol 

Rinse millet 3 times with hot water. Cook until soft with cup of coconut milk and 1/2 cup of water.

Add bananas, vanilla bean and rest of the coconut milk to the cooked millet and blend it. It takes a while till It’s really smooth.

​​Sprinkle with chia seeds and bon apetit!
