Sometimes there is nothing more comforting than a PB&J! It brings me right back to being a kid and fond memories. Those memories extend through out my life. Is it true for you? My husband is a huge fan and I knew he'd be tickled if I made him one. With homemade oat bread, pecan butter and strawberry jam, satisfaction was found!!
Oats and water plus a few other ingredients are all that will be needed to whip up a loaf of bread. It's not the fanciest loaf but it's warm, hot, gluten-free bread that works great as sandwich bread. Spread some nut butter and jam and you are eating few ingredients, all of which are healthy for you! No preservatives here, no additives, sugar, dairy, oil or gluten just 100% healthy ingredients to create a yummy sandwich!
For the bread:
Add Your Favorite Nut Butter and Jam. We chose a pecan butter with Homemade Strawberry Chia Jam!

The bread was sweet and the texture was perfect. I am making it again, this time using molasses, because agave is so expensive. I highly recommend this recipe."
This recipe is created with minimal effort and creates a wholesome loaf that is gluten-free, yeast-free, oil-free, sugar-free, nut-free and dairy-free! With minimalistic ingredients used, almost anyone can bring their bread god or goddess out in them and enjoy the benefits! It has a mild flavor that could be enhanced with a little sweetener or spices for a different blend.
How does one make it? Simply mix the ingredients, pour into a loaf pan and bake. No kneading is required. No hours of labor. It takes about 15 minutes of preparation while the oven does the rest. Give it an hour or more to bake and you'll be salivating waiting for that warm fresh bread to come out of the oven so you can smother it in your favorite spread. At least, that was my experience! :)
How will you enjoy it? We made a PB&J! Technically it was an AB&J as we used almond butter but PB&J has such a better ring to it and brings back childhood memories! My husband LOVES and I mean LOVES a PB&J smothered in jam. I made homemade almond butter and jam for a healthy and satisfying sandwich!
My husbands is featured on the left and mine is on the right, his had jam oozing out of it! :)

I hope you enjoy a slice of homemade bread and a bright new week!
The name says it all. This sandwich is GIGANTIC! I dare you to make it and try to put your mouth around it! Somehow, I managed and ate it down quite readily. I typically try to keep things in our home gluten-free, yeast free etc. but sometimes you have to splurge! I picked up a small sourdough baguette, sliced that bad boy open and couldn't help but load it with fresh vegetables.
I started with Miso Mayo - SO good! I picked it up at Whole Foods a while back, I just ran out and will be getting some more for sure!
Then I loaded it with baby spinach, red onions, cucumber, avocado, yellow bell pepper, tomatoes, basil, jalapenos and homegrown sprouts! I didn't stop there, I drizzled some extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinaigrette and sprinkled some salt and pepper on top! Served with some organic popcorn in olive oil and sea salt.
My dad LOVES and I mean LOVES BBQ. I remember one of his favorites being pulled pork, smoked for hours until it falls apart. He loves the roadside stands wgith a smoker and a scent that will make you stop. Well dad and all other fellow BBQ lovers I have you covered with a satisfying vegan alternative!
The best part is Babe, Wilbur and little Miss Piggy are all spared! This pulled "pork" is made not form a pig but from JACKFRUIT! Say what? That's right, Jackfruit! It doesn't look like much at first, but have faith; it cooks into the most mouth watering meal. It's almost too good to be true
Jackfruit is a very large fruit mainly grown in tropical climates. I updated the pictures with a jackfruit tree we saw in Southern Mexico. I was so excited to see it at our hotel! Jackfruit is loaded with potassium, vitamin C, fiber, dietary fiber and fats and so much more.
Unless you live in a tropical environment and have some growing, how will you get some? I got mine at a local Asian market in CA and bought a can. I recommend a can for less processing. In some parts of the world you may have to order it if you don't have an Asian market or local supply.
Open the can, drain and rinse very well. I even soaked in water for a little bit to ensure to get rid of as much vinegar taste as possible. Once done cut the center piece, kind of like you would a pineapple!
Take the jackfruit and cover in dry rub. I mixed the spices together in a small bowl and then sprinkled to cover the jackfruit. Cook for about 5 minutes or so until it becomes tender.
Add your favorite BBQ sauce and let it simmer for 30-60 minutes.
It will start to evolve into something that looks very much like pulled pork! I was so excited I called my dad! I wouldn't tell him what I was making lol but ended up chatting on the phone while it cooked nice and slow. It will start to evolve into something that looks very much like pulled pork!

Place the "pork" a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes to gain a more meat like texture.
After about 15 minutes it will look something like this.
Serve on your favorite bun. In this case I served with a fresh red bell pepper and avocado. Delicious!!! No extra seasoning or sauce required. Heck yah it's Vegan!
Want to make some? Here is how!
Tip: Ensure Hamburger Buns and BBQ Sauce are Gluten-Free if allergic to gluten.
I am so thankful for good food and to be able to share it with all of you! Enjoy!
Fall is here and nothing beats having a bowl of warm tomato soup served with a grilled "cheese" sandwich. I added a simple spinach salad to top it off. It's one of our favorites and makes for a very quick and easy vegan dinner!
I don't know why I've never made a veggie sandwich for Jerry and I. I finally did and boy did I go all out. It was unbelievably delicious. Homemade bread with soy cheese, a heaping pile of raw and grilled veggies served with your favorite sauce makes for a delectable treat! We devoured them instantly. :)
