Ragtime Salad Mix

Syncopate your palate with a wonderful mix of crispy Okinawa Spinach, Ceylon spinach, tart cranberry hibiscus, and chartreuse sweet potato leaves. We recommend a ginger type dressing for this salad. Here is one from All recipes. This dressing will keep well when refrigerated for 2 - 3 weeks.  These greens can be purchased on our Market.

Rita's Kick Start Bread

Here are the essentials of my bread.

I do not use any flour, sugar or wheat

The whole grains I use are buckwheat steel cut oats, rice grits, sesame seeds, chia seeds, teff, flax meal.  The ratio is up to you.

I use 2 cups steel cut oats, 1 cup buckwheat, 1 cup rice grits, 1/2 cup teff, 1/4 cup flax 1/4 cup chia and sesame seed.

Recipe makes:  10 servings.

5 1/2 cups of grains

3 1/3 cups egg either whole or egg whites
5 cups  fruit puree,  either apple sauce, pineapple, pears, banana or vegetable puree

cinnamon and or ginger or pumpkin pie spice

Mix these together 

Divide the batter between two flat baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
