Kale Bread / Rolls / Pizza Dough / Tortillas

photo: kale breadYes, this comes out green…no you CANNOT taste the kale. It works nicely to eliminate the sweetness that so often comes about with coconut flour.

1/3 c + 1 Tbsp ground psyllium husks (I get mine from Now Foods on Amazon)
1 cup coconut flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp coarse, kosher salt
6 eggs
4 egg whites
1/4 c apple cider vinegar
1.5 cups kale water (2.5 cups packed kale+1.5 cups water…food processed or well blended in high powered blender – I use a vitamix)

Mix all wet ingredients with a hand blender. Add psyllium and blend. Add coconut flour and blend.  Give dough a few minutes and you should be able to handle it like a ball of dough.

With this dough you can do a few things…
1. Make a loaf of bread – parchment line a large bread pan. Spread dough evenly. Bake at 375 for 90 minutes. Allow to cool before slicing. Freezes and toasts beautifully.

2. Make rolls – parchment line a baking sheet. Form rolls. bake at 375 for 1 hour 15 minutes. Allow to cool before using.

3. Make pizza dough – parchment line a baking sheet or pizza pan. Spread out dough. The easiest way to do this is to use another piece of parchment and basically massage it out to approximately 1/4-1/2 inch thick. The thinner the better. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes before adding toppings and cooking for another 20.

4. Make tortillas – roll out tortillas in between two sheets of parchment and then fry in a hot non-stick skillet with no oil for a couple minutes per side.

Easy, peasy lemon squeezey…get your green on.
