Gluten-Free Pueblo Bread Recipe with Green Chiles

Gluten-Free Pueblo Bread with Green Chiles
 Rustic gluten-free bread- easy and delicious.

This is the easiest yeasted bread you'll ever make. Well, from a scratch recipe, I mean. You'll have to whisk together some gluten-free flours and proof a little yeast in warm (not too hot!) water, but you can handle that, right? Once it's stirred together, you smooth it into a cake pan, let it rise in a warm and cozy oven, then bake it. If you want an easier bread making experience than this, Darling, buy any gluten-free mix, dump it into a bread machine and press Start.

I'm calling it Pueblo Bread because a certain savvy friend of mine (you know the one- my pal Joey, who makes the best damn guacamole recipe this side of the Mississippi) who knows from Nuevo Native American cuisine, called it (and my quote could be slightly inaccurate, Gentle Reader, due to consuming literal fistfuls of organic hand-popped popcorn to quell the mind-numbing boredom of enduring two and half hours of There Will Be Blood), Tasty and authentic, and not unlike the local Pueblo style breads.

As for the movie choice? My bad. Maybe the sheer Shakespearean brilliance of Deadwood has spoiled me forever when it comes to period westerns (it's possible).

Next time I'm picking something with Frances McDormand.

The men will just have to deal.

Karina's Gluten-Free Pueblo Bread Recipe
This hearty tender bread is lovely with steaming bowls of chili, soup, slow cooked stew, and any Mexican-style or rustic recipes your family loves. Choose mild or spicy roasted green chiles for this grainy wheat-free bread; gentle or knock 'em dead hot, it will be delicious.

Note: I've tweaked this recipe a bit since it was first posted in 2008.

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon active dry or rapid yeast
1 cup warm water 110º to 115ºF
A pinch of sugar or dab of honey
3/4 cup gluten-free cornmeal
1/2 cup organic GF buckwheat flour
1/2 cup sorghum flour or brown rice flour
1/2 cup potato starch
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 teaspoon chili powder- mild or hot
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon each of minced onion
1/4 to 1/3 cup organic light brown sugar (I used 1/3 cup)
2 large organic free-range eggs or Ener-G Egg Replacer
1/4 cup plus two tablespoons olive oil, or grapeseed oil
2 or more extra tablespoons of warm water, as needed
1/2 cup chopped roasted green chiles- mild or hot

Instructions:

Turn your oven on briefly to warm it, then turn it off.

Line a 8 or 9-inch cake pan with parchment. Sprinkle a little gluten-free cornmeal on the bottom, and set aside.

Proof the yeast by adding it to the warm water with a pinch of sugar or dab of honey. Set aside to get poofy.

Meanwhile, whisk together the GF cornmeal, flours, and dry ingredients.
Add in the proofed yeast and water mixture, eggs and oil. Stir to combine. The dough should be like muffin batter. Add a tablespoon of warm water, or two, if needed.

Add in the green chiles by hand, and stir until the dough is smooth.

Spoon the dough into a cornmeal dusted cake pan and smooth with wet hands or a rubber spatula to form a loaf. Place the pan into a warm oven (not too hot, as you don't want to bake it, just coax it to rise).

When the dough has doubled in height, turn on the oven and set it to 375ºF.

Bake for 25 to 35 minutes until the loaf is firm to the touch and slightly golden. It should sound a bit hollow if you tap it. If in doubt- check with a wooden toothpick- it should be dry; a few moist crumbs are okay.

Place on a cooling rack for five minutes and then release the bread from the pan to continue cooling on a wire rack- this keeps moisture from forming (moisture from the pan makes a bread bottom soggy- and you don't want a soggy bottom now do you?)

Serve warm or at room temperature- but warm is best.

Grill leftover slices in a little olive oil for a breakfast treat.

Yields 8 to 10 slices.

We enjoyed wedges of this bread dipped in Italian extra virgin olive oil.

Gluten-Free Shepherd's Pie Two Ways (one vegan)

For today's menu? Gluten-Free Shepherd's Pie Two Ways (one vegan). A frigid wind is rolling through, interrupting our whisper of solar warmth with bracing bursts of frosty cold. But the skies are clear and cobalt blue, nudging out the low wooly gray of yesterday. Still, it's the kind of day that calls for comfort in the form of food. Something baked in a crock. Something piping hot and old fashioned. Something with mashed potatoes. A savory pie, I said out loud, standing at the window watching our pair of cardinals and chickadees take turns at the feeder stocked with black oil sunflower seeds. Don't tease me, said my husband from his corner study, looking up, I imagine, from his latest screenplay effort. I wouldn't joke about a thing like pie, I assured him. I'm thinking- a shepherd's pie, I said. More to myself than him. But not the usual shepherd's pie. No lamb. No beef. No onion. No peas, I murmured. Please, he said. No peas. (His hearing is ex

Gluten-Free Goddess Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Banana bread for the rest of us. No apologies needed.  Out there in the cold cruel world, Darling, some folks apparently (still) view our gluten-free lifestyle through a jaded foodie lens, believing, first of all, that gluten-free anything is never going to taste anything but awful, and second, that this whole gluten-free trend (their word not mine) is a fad not worthy of serious consideration, appreciation and compassion. Apart from the standard (and brief) lip service that non-afflicted food writers, bloggers and journalists pay to celiac disease, adhering to the medical treatment that is a gluten-free diet is degraded- for that sexy topical hook- to a "bandwagon". An eating disorder. A diet by choice. They dub it a controversy. Two food bloggers referenced the gluten-free diet on a social networking site recently, bragging about their "iron stomachs" and their ability to chow down on everything, implying that those of us unable to ingest gluten merely have &

Gluten-Free Fudge Brownies - Our New Favorite Recipe

Our go-to brownie recipe- for years- was this fabulous Dark Chocolate Brownie Recipe , created back in the early, innocent gluten-free days of 2006. And it has never failed us. We must have baked hundreds of these brownies. I'm so not kidding. So why mess around and experiment with success, you might, quite logically, ask? Well. I cannot come up with a definitive philosophy behind my impulse to try something new. All I can say is, It's my nature. And that's good news for brownie lovers everywhere. Because these fudgy-good gems are easy to make. No xanthan gum or weird ingredients. Just rich chocolate goodness. What better way to ring in a New Year? So go. Get fudgy. Peace - Love - Chocolate, Karina xo

Snow Day Cake with Blueberries

Last night's winter storm crept in overnight, waking me in the pitch black dark of 4 AM with its silence, its ten-inch thick blanket of fresh fallen snow. Magic like that can wake you up out of a sound sleep. After padding around to the windows to see if flakes were still drifting down and downy, sticking to the bird-feeders in impossibly high heaps, I couldn't get back to sleep, so I preheated the oven and baked us a tea cake for breakfast.  It's a simple muffin style cake studded on the top with blueberries. I know. I know. Blueberries? In January. Well. Yeah. Because January. Because snowstorm. And honestly, who doesn't crave blueberries all year round? Why should they be relegated only to summer recipes?  That's why The Goddess invented frozen blueberries. For snow days. And recipes like this one.  Stay cozy wherever you are, and stay safe. Bake a cake.  Add a little sweetness to your weekend. Karina xo

Fabulous Chicken Enchiladas- worthy of a game day get-together. Yummy. Easy. Chicken enchiladas. I never tire of them. And I'm not alone.

Serve with this longtime family favorite-   Joey's Rockin' Guac   and tortilla chips. As easy as uno, dos, tres. Stay safe out there! Karina xo

New Chocolate Muffins for Winter 2022

Facing the Winter of 2022 takes a dash of courage. A pinch of patience (well, way more than a pinch!). And a hopeful refresh of your favorite treat go-tos. In other words. HERE WE GO AGAIN. Bring on the chocolate. So with that in mind, my beloveds. This is my latest version of a chocolate breakfast treat- a gluten-free muffin with options. If you need a sweet- but not too sweet- lure to start your day, these cocoa infused beauties might be just the ticket. If- like me- you may need a little extra deliciousness, especially on a gloomy day, you can add in (like I did, I confess) extras. Like, dark chocolate chips. And walnuts or pecans. It's up to you how much indulgence you need to get you through. We don't judge. The added bonus? Your kitchen will smell like a bakery. Like a chocolate hug. Like... love, maybe. Because the secret ingredient is always LOVE. Put love in your baking and your day is sure to be brighter. And more delicious. Love yourself. Take care of your Someone Sp

Butternut Chili Spicy 'n Sweet

A New Year's bowl of comfort for 2022. Sweet 'n spicy chili with a dash of lime. New Year's Day is almost upon us. Rather than wax nostalgic about the bumpy ride of the year we've had, I'd rather post a simple home cooked recipe I know you'll love.  Making a pot of bean soup or legume heavy chili to welcome in a freshly minted year is a tradition as old as the hills. From Italian Pasta Fagioli to homestyle southern Hoppin' John , beans somehow acquired the favorable reputation of attracting good luck.  Why? I haven't a clue. But I do know this.  Beans paired with cubes of winter squash make for one sweet and tasty chili. That, Dear Reader, you can take to the bank. Wishing you all good luck, good health and lots of love in 2022. Karina xo
