Last weekend we were in a local cafe and Jared saw someone tucking into a big lemon poppyseed muffin. He looked at me… ‘You know what I could go for…
Joy: Potato bread is a national and very beloved food of Ireland. You can buy it in any shop, ask for it in most restaurants, and find it in most Irish kitchens. It’s most commonly known for being part of an “Irish fry” which is made up of bacon, sausage, mushrooms, eggs, tomatoes, soda bread and potato bread – this dish is part of my legacy and even now at home, there are some nights where we’ll just opt out of making any sort of meal for dinner and decide on making an Irish fry instead! So when it came around to me altering my diet, I knew that this was one recipe that needed to be created, and I’m so glad it did – it’s a great healthier alternative that brings all the nostalgia but is kinder to my body!
1 cup mashed sweet potato (about 1 sweet potato)
1 cup sprouted spelt flour
½ tsp salt
1 tsp coconut oil
Boil your sweet potatoes until soft, then drain your saucepan, and mash your sweet potatoes.
When cool, store your mashed potatoes in the fridge overnight. (This helps your potato bread to stay together when being cooked, they could fall apart otherwise.)
The next day, mix the sweet potato, spelt flour and salt in a bowl until you form a ball.
On a floured surface, gently roll and press your dough into a flat disc (about half an inch thick) and cut into 4 pieces.
Heat your oil in a skillet on a medium high heat and place your slices of bread in the pan.
Cook for a couple minutes on each side until the bread looks crispy and brown.
If you don’t eat it all in one sitting, you can just store the potato bread. I keep mine sealed in the fridge and re-heat it when I want it over the next couple of days. If you don’t want the full Irish fry to go with it, it’s so versatile you could pretty much put anything on it! I love it with avocado and a poached egg, or thick spread with hummus, or think taco style and load it up with some salsa and pulled pork!
Happy St Patrick’s Day to you guys!
If there’s one meal that shouldn’t be made strictly to a recipe, I think it’s soup. You really just have to taste it as you go along. Every vegetable you use can…
Crumble (/cobbler) is the dessert of my childhood. And blackberry picking was our summer activity before ‘foraging’ was cool. (Thanks Granny!) We’d put on wellies, long trousers, grab an umbrella…
I do this right after making my sun butter, just don’t scrape out the blender well and then add everything in to taste – to taste really is the key…
Autumn taunted us for a few days last week with lower temperatures and I was instantly ready to dig out the pumpkin pie spice, start Christmas shopping and curl up…
