Chicken Pot Pie (Gluten-Free)

Oh my! I forgot how much I love pot pie!! My only complaint with this recipe is that I did not make enough! My fiancé, his niece and I had it for dinner and had enough for lunch leftovers. If you are planning to make this a meal for more than one night for two people, you might want to increase your measurements or serve it with mashed potatoes or sautéed kale dish.

Chickpea & Millet Masala Dosa (vegan)

Healthy, spicy, vegan South Indian breakfast! I love the flavors and colors of Indian food. One awesome thing about traditional Dosas, or thin crispy crepes, is that they are naturally gluten-free! These delights can be made from combining a bean and a grain, the most common being Urad Dal (skinned black matpe lentils) and Rice and then fermented. I prefer to make them using chickpeas and millet, especially with flour (no soaking, grinding or fermented needed). Using flours makes this a quick and easy crispy bread, full of nutrients – perfect for breakfast! A great alternative to the sweet American breakfast pancake we are so familiar with.
