Gluten Free Bruschetta!!!!

All I have to say about this one is uuummmm…yummm!!! Working with the Women’s Environmental Institute this summer has exposed me to some new delcious foods like Amaranth!  I have baked with Amaranth and eaten Amaranth flowers but never Amaranth leaves.  There are approxiamtly 60 different species of Amaranth and they range in color from purple to red and gold.  In Indonesia and Malaysia Amaranth is refurred to as bayam.

 

So this is no typical snack or Bruschetta…Talk about Gourmet Farmers Market from your home!!!  This recipe is easy.  I simply sliced up a small baguette of gluten free bread and toasted it.  Topped with amaranth leaves.  Fried tomato and grass fed lean ground beef.  Drizzle a chirvel salad dressing over top.

 

Chirvel Salad Dressing
1/2 fresh lime squeezed

1 handful of fresh chirvel

1/4 C. olive oil

splash of gluten free tamari

blend in a magic bullet or blender!!!

 

What is Chervil? Chervil is a garden herb, related to parsley, spread by the roman’s through europe.  Known as a gourmet herb it is often used to season foods such as chicken, veggies, and seafood.  Some people like to add it to eggs, omlets or with other herbs to a vinegar to make a fragrant vinegar marinade.

Chervil has had various traditional uses. It was claimed to be useful as a digestive aid, for lowering high blood pressure, and, infused with vinegar, for curing hiccups.[3] Besides its digestive properties, it is used as a mild stimulant.[2]- Wikipedia
