Buckwheat Sourdoughnuts

Buckwheat Sourdoughnuts

Not too sweet, sourdough doughnuts are cake-like and dense thanks to the inclusion of buckwheat flour.  Filling with a wholesome rustic texture and flavor, these doughnuts are leavened first through the same method used to prepare sourdough bread.

A staple in our home, baked oatmeal is made from steel cut oats combined with pastured eggs and coconut oil for a beautiful breakfast casserole.

whole grain buttermilk biscuits

Whole-grain Buttermilk Biscuits

If you’re using freshly ground flour, you need only soak the dough for a few hours though you can certainly soak it longer, by choice if not necessity.  This recipe produces a classic buttermilk recipe with a tender crumb and is best served with fresh butter and wildflower honey or jam.

Oeufs en Cocotte with Lox

Easy to prepare for just one, these pastured eggs are baked in a buttered dish and combined with pecorino romano cheese and home-cure gravlax.

Everyone deserves a treat now and then, these doughnuts are sweetened with a touch of honey and made from sprouted grain flour – a whole grain, nutrient-dense version of classic American junk food.

Buckwheat Porridge

Buckwheat porridge sweetened with a touch of molasses and dried fruit can be made with sprouted grain.

Soaked Oatmeal Porridge

Soaked oatmeal can be prepared quickly.   Soaking decreases cooking time while mitigating the effects of common antinutrients found in whole grains.   This porridge is prepared with nuts, seeds and raisins.

Spinach, Caramelized Onion & Chèvre Quiche with Potato Crust

A perfect and elegant dish for brunch, this quiche combines spinach, caramelized onions and chèvre in a crust of thinly sliced potatoes.   The dish is grain- and gluten-free.

Cinnamon Sweet Potato Hashbrowns

Cinnamon Sweet Potato Hashbrowns offer a new take on classic breakfast fare.   Garnet yams are rich in antioxidants and polyphenols including beta carotene.   This dish combines with coconut oil which aids in the better absorption of fat-soluble nutrients, while the cinnamon adds a touch of sweetness without sugar.

Sprouted Grain Crêpes

It’s a hard task to find a tender whole grain crêpe, but these work extraordinarily well.   The crumb is tender, and the combination of sprouted grain, whole milk and pastured egg.

Lox & Scallion Scrambled Eggs

A great source of omega-3 fatty acids, this quick scramble combines pastured eggs with lox and scallions for a quick, nourishing breakfast.

Maple-glazed Parsnips

Sourdough Peach Pancakes

Got too much sourdough starter?   Make these sourdough peach pancakes.   Delicious with grade B maple syrup or honey and fresh cream.

A nourishing clafoutis (or skillet cake) filled with blueberries provides a nice alternative to blueberry muffins.   We often eat it as a dessert.

Buttermilk Oat Flour Biscuits

Soaked in buttermilk, oat flour and butter combine for this nice breakfast biscuit.

Herb-baked Eggs

Great, easy breakfast: pastured eggs baked with herbs.
