SCD Tomato Pie - a delicious savory dish made with fresh tomatoes, an almond flour crust and homemade mayonnaise

Have you ever tried tomato pie? I know the thought of a savory pie might throw some of you. It certainly did confuse one of my kids when I told him I was serving him tomato pie. He was expecting something sweet. So, if you’re prone to thinking of pie as only being sweet, then call this tomato quiche (although it really isn’t) or tomato tart just to get your head around a savory tomato pie.

SCD Tomato Pie - a delicious savory dish made with fresh tomatoes, an almond flour crust and homemade mayonnaise

I had tomato pie many years ago when my kids were in pre-school. The fact that I still remember how delicious it was is a real testament to just how good this simple tomato pie was. I remember asking how it was made and was surprised to learn that mayonnaise and Parmesan cheese were the key components.

Recently, I decided to make tomato pie for the first time, but make it healthier. My version of tomato pie is made with SCD and GAPS Diet approved foods, including almond flour and homemademayonnaise (see this SCD GAPS Diet mayonnaise recipe ). I added some fresh chopped rosemary to the crust to give it a nice scent.

If you’ve been following my posts recently, you’ll notice I’ve been experimenting a bit with recipes that comply with the SCD and GAPS Diet. This version of tomato pie is made with SCD and GAPS Diet approved foods, but even if youaren’ton either of these diets, you’ll enjoy this tomato pie.

I used a combination of heirloom tomatoes and vine ripened tomatoes. It’s important to try to drain out as much of the tomato juice as possible; otherwise, you’ll have a mushy tomato pie. These tomatoes were lightly salted, then placed on a paper towel lined baking sheet. I flipped them over after 15 minutes and let the other side drain as well.

The almond flour based crust is prebaked, then the tomatoes are layered on top of the crust, along with sliced onions and fresh basil, and then seasoned with garlic powderand pepper.

Next, a mixture of homemade mayonnaise and Parmesan cheese is spread on top. To make it easier, I dropped dollops of the topping all over the pie and then spread it carefully with a spatula.

What emerges from the oven after baking is a gorgeous pie that smells amazing.

My boys loved it, and recommended that it be served warm. (The crust will turn soggy if left too long.)

I made this savory Tomato Pie for this month’s Recipe Redux challenge, which was to make a savory or sweet pie healthier: “Tucked in a crust, nothing says love from the oven like pie. Whether it’s a twist on the all-American apple pie or a traditional recipe from your home country, give a healthy makeover to your favorite savory or sweet pie recipe.”

Scd Gaps Diet Sour Cream Creme Fraiche Recipe

SCD GAPS Diet Sour Cream Creme Fraiche - use as a base for a rich ice cream that's virtually lactose free

SCD GAPS Diet Sour Cream Creme Fraiche is naturally virtually lactose free and makes the perfect base for a rich and creamy ice cream.
Recently, I’ve been trying a few basic SCD GAPS Diet recipes as part of the learning process about the SCD and GAPS diet. The first recipe I tried was homemade fermented yogurt made in a dehydrator that regulates temperature very well. I’ve also made SCD GAPS Diet Mayonnaise . Next on the list was this SCD GAPS Diet Sour Cream or Creme Fraiche recipe. It’s made with heavy cream which makes it very decadent, but serves as the perfect base for a rich frozen yogurt or ice cream.

SCD GAPS Diet Sour Cream Creme Fraiche - use as a base for a rich ice cream that's virtually lactose free

This fermented Sour Cream or Creme Fraiche is supposed to be nourishing for the immune system and the brain and is part of the SCD and GAPS diet, to be used in place of commercial sour cream. The method of preparing this sour cream is the same as the SCD GAPS Diet Yogurt. It’s fermented at a low temperature for at least 24 hours. This basic SCD and GAPS Diet recipe is a keeper – pin it or bookmark it to save for later. I’ll be sharing an ice cream recipe using this SCD GAPS Diet Sour Cream soon :).

Quinoa Black Bean Tacos

Quinoa black bean tacos with avocado crema! Quick, easy and delicious. cookieandkate.com

You guys are the best. You know that, right? Two months ago, when I shared my roasted cauliflower and lentil tacos recipe , I asked you to hop over to Facebook and vote for my recipe. You did, and my tacos won!

quinoa black bean tacos ingredients

That means my tacos will represent the United States at the United Nations’ 2016 International Year of Pulses celebrations. (Pulses are beans, lentils and other dried legumes and they were selected based on their significant health, economic and environmental benefits.) Basically, you’ve made this food nerd verrrry happy. Thank you! Thank you to the USA Dry Pea and Lentil Council for letting me participate, too.

avocado sauce and quinoa

Since 2016 seems so far away, I thought we’d celebrate today with some more tacos! These are inspired by some that I ordered last week at my friend’s bachelorette party. I was sitting next to my college roommates, sipping my cocktail very slowly, and feeling sappy about how grown-up we are now.

quinoa taco filling

The waiter came by and I ordered some quinoa tacos, hoping that they would be hearty enough to fill me up. They were, fortunately, and they were so tasty that I had to recreate them at home right away.

How to make quinoa black bean tacos - cookieandkate.com

The quinoa and black bean filling takes cues from traditional ground beef fillings, but offers lots of plant-based protein and fiber. I couldn’t resist topping it with a generous spread of creamy, tangy avocado sauce and some romaine lettuce for some requisite crunch. To really make the flavors pop, add a few pickled jalapeños and/or crumbled feta cheese.

Perhaps the best part is that these tacos are ready in 30 minutes. I hope they are a new weeknight favorite for you, too!

  • How To Make Cold Brew Iced Tea

    Cold brew iced tea is so refreshing! No bitterness at all. cookieandkate.com

    My mom made sun tea when I was little. She would fill up the same clear plastic pitcher with Lipton tea bags and water and set it out in the sun to steep. I’d go out there and marvel at the process. As an experiment, I filled cans with water and macaroni noodles and set them next to her sun tea to “cook”. Never worked, no matter how long I left them out there.

    Cold brew iced tea ingredients

    Fast forward a few years, and my mom let up on her soda-once-a-week rule. I started guzzling Dr. Pepper like she guzzled unsweetened iced tea, and I squealed every time I grabbed the wrong cup from the cup holder. Yuck!

    how to make cold brew iced tea

    Nowadays, I’ve given up the soda in favor of good clean water. I’ve always wanted to understand my mom’s iced tea thing, and I’ve finally found a way to really, truly enjoy it—cold brew!

    Cold brew iced tea recipe (so simple!) cookieandkate.com

    The cold brew method reminds me of sun tea, since you’re just steeping tea in water for hours, but cold brew takes place in the refrigerator instead of the back porch. Heat brings out the tannic, bitter flavors in tea. In the absence of heat, you’re left with perfectly refreshing, super smooth tea for slow summer sipping. It isn’t bitter in the slightest.

    Cold brew iced tea with lemon - cookieandkate.com

    The method itself is incredibly simple. Just combine loose-leaf tea or whole tea bags and water in a pitcher and let the tea infuse the water for 6 to 12 hours in the refrigerator (see instructions below for specifics). Strain, and you have cold-brew tea that will taste great for days!

    Refreshing cold brew green tea! cookieandkate.com

    Bon Appetit suggested that they have best results with loose-leaf tea, so I used loose-leaf here, but I’ve since been making lazy cold-brew tea by soaking whole bags in water, which tastes almost as good and is much easier to make. Another option? Steep your loose-leaf tea in a clean French press—just press down the filter to remove those loose tea leaves and pour!

  • Sauteed Swiss Chard with Carrots and Celery Recipe

    Sauteed Swiss Chard with Carrots and Celery - a simple and delicious way to prepare Swiss chard

    Sauteed Swiss Chard with Carrots and Celery is a deliciously easy way to prepare this healthy vegetable.

    I’m always looking for new ways to get my boys to eat leafy green vegetables. Out of all the vegetables, I’ve found leafy green veggies to be the hardest sell.

    Sauteed Swiss Chard with Carrots and Celery - a simple and delicious way to prepare Swiss chard

    Over the years, I’ve turned kale into pesto , made kale chips and roasted kale to get the boys to eat kale. When it comes to Swiss chard, I either cook it by steaming it first, then sautéing it , or make pesto out of it. The reason I steam Swiss chard before sautéing it is that I find the stems become tender at the same time as the leaves. Swiss chard is an excellent source of vitamins K, A, C and E, as well as magnesium, copper, manganese, potassium and iron, so there are some great health benefits to getting your family to try it.

    Typically, I just saute Swiss chard with onions, but recently, I tried adding garlic, carrots and celery to the mix and it has transformed my typicalsimple preparation of Swiss chard into something so much more flavorful. Onions, carrots and celery are oftenused togetheras the base in soups, stews and braises (“mirepoix”), so it’s not a surprise that this works for a simple sauteed vegetable.

    I’m not sure why I didn’t think about this before, but I’m glad I now have a tastierway of serving Swiss chard to my family.

    Good gracious, how I love avocado. Avocado on toast is almost impossible to beat, but it’s also a fantastic addition Mexican meals and fresh green recipes of any kind, really. The avocados you’ll find in stores now are probably from Mexico, where avocados are in season year-round, but California avocados are in season now, too. Avocado elsewhere:

    Plump, juicy, sweet blackberries are a snack in themselves. They’re also lovely in baked goods and make a simple dessert when served with whipped cream. As a general rule, buy organic berries (they soak up pesticides). Blackberries elsewhere:

    Thank goodness for spring greens. You might be able to find local arugula, spinach, lettuce, spinach, Swiss chard and/or watercress now, depending on where you live. I love them every which way: in salads, as pesto, tossed in pasta and sautéed with garlic. Greens elsewhere:

Chop kale for stir-fries or a side of greens (sauté in olive oil and garlic), or massage it with a dash of salt for salads (see any of my kale salads for further instruction), or lightly coat roughly chopped kale with olive oil and roast it for kale chips.

    Herbed Red Potato Salad Recipe

    This simple, herbed red potato salad recipe will be a hit at your next potluck! cookieandkate.com

    This fresh potato salad recipe is for my fellow last-minute potluck planners. When you’re scrambling to make yourself look decent and trying to scrounge together a side worth sharing and letting the dog out all at the same time? Potato salad to the rescue!

    red potatoes

    I honestly never met a potato salad I loved until I made this one. It’s a riff on classic French potato salads, which contain no mayo and lots of herbs. I opted for lemon juice instead of vinegar for a super fresh-tasting salad.

    potato salad ingredients

    After some trial and error, I discovered that the key to making the best mayo-free potato salad is blending the dressing in the food processor with some starchy reserved potato cooking water. You end up with a super creamy, herby emulsification that infuses the potatoes with fresh flavor.

    how to make potato salad

    Another trick, which comes from the experts at America’s Test Kitchen, is to slice your potatoes before boiling, rather than afterward. That way, the potatoes don’t break down into mush when you’re tossing the salad later. Plus, your potatoes cook faster that way (five minutes!). This potato salad comes together in a flash.

  • Pasta Primavera with Fresh Tomatoes, Basil and Garlic Recipe

    Pasta Primavera with Fresh Tomatoes, Basil and Garlic - just 3 fresh ingredients make this easy and delicious pasta

    This Pasta Primavera with Fresh Tomatoes, Basil and Garlic takes just 20minutes to prepare, perfect for a quick and easy dinner.

    St Martin Terre Basse

    Our family just got back from an incredible family vacation on the island of St. Martin in the Caribbean. I haven’t been to the Caribbean in over twenty years, and have never been there with my entire family so it was a truly special trip.We were celebrating our oldest son’s graduation from college before he starts working full-time. It was a bittersweet time for us.While it was awesome having a week together as a family, playing games, swimming together, laughing over dinnertime conversations, and just hanging out, I know that it will be much harder to go on vacations together going forward.

    St Martin Long Beach

    As parents, we dream of launching our kids into life well prepared to be good and responsible citizens, to be self-sufficient, to find a good job that will support their living expenses, and to be happy with where they have landed. Yet, when the moment actually arrives, it’s kind of a strange feeling, knowing that they now have their own home – that our home will no longer be their home base.

    St Martin

    There’s a finality that didn’t exist when they were in college.

    Pasta Primavera with Fresh Tomatoes, Basil and Garlic - just 3 fresh ingredients make this easy and delicious pasta

    It’s a new chapter in our son’s life and ours. Of course, we’re excited for him and can’t wait to watch him pave his own path. He’s matured so much and become so independent over the past four years at college.We feel fortunate that he’s living only an hour away, so he can hop on a train and come home when he has time.

    This Pasta Primavera with Fresh Tomatoes, Basil and Garlic was one of our kids’ favorite meals on St. Martin, and one that I recreated in my kitchen this past weekend when my oldest son came home. The chef who prepared this for us on St. Martin called this pasta primavera, which I initially thought was going to be a creamy pasta dish with broccoli, carrots and other vegetables like I’ve sometimes seen in the U.S. We were pleasantly surprised to be presented with a beautiful pasta dish with fresh tomatoes, garlic infused olive oil,and a smattering of fresh basil on top. When I asked how it was prepared, I was surprised by how few ingredients this recipe has. The key is to use the best, freshest produce available. This theme rang true throughout all the meals we enjoyed during our vacation. Each and every ingredient used to prepare our meals was hand selected with the greatest of care to ensure that it was the freshest and highest quality possible.

    Since coming home, I’ve been re-energized and inspired by all the wonderful meals we had during our vacation. As I peruse all the fresh produce at home, whether at the farmer’s market or the grocery store, I try to take the time to smell and feel each piece of fruit, to choose the freshest vegetables, and select the best ingredients for my family by reading the labels on everything I buy.

    Try this recipe with the freshest summer tomatoes and basil you can find, and the best extra virgin olive oil you can find (I use Costco’s organic extra virgin olive oil) and you won’t be disappointed – I promise.

    Sundried Tomato Pesto Pasta Recipe

    Sun-dried tomato pesto pasta with roasted vegetables, a simple and veggie-packed weeknight meal! cookieandkate.com

    This post is brought to you by DeLallo.

    sun-dried tomato pesto pasta ingredients

    I had an all-American weekend full of good friends and food, punctuated by flashes and booms. It was overwhelmingly fun. You know what I mean? Since we’re all in the same boat, I thought I’d share my three-day holiday weekend recovery plan with you today.

    balsamic roasted veggies

    Here it is: organic whole grain pasta, tossed with tons of roasted veggies and homemade sun-dried tomato pesto. It’s fresh, filling and leftovers keep well for lunch. Just what the doctor ordered.

    how to make sun-dried tomato pesto

    Sun-dried tomato pesto has been on my list for ages now, so when my friends at DeLallo asked me to create a recipe that highlights their fantastic sun-dried tomatoes , I knew just what to make. Oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes are perfect for pesto, since you can pour all of that delicious, tomato-infused extra-virgin olive oil right into the food processor.

    sun-dried tomato pesto with roasted veggies

    My pesto is a riff on traditional basil pesto, with sun-dried tomatoes in addition to fresh basil. Sun-dried tomatoes are super rich in umami flavor, so they easily fill the place of Parmesan, although you can certainly add some cheese if you’d like.

    Easy, homemade sun-dried tomato pesto pasta with roasted vegetables! cookieandkate.com

    I like my pasta with tons of vegetables, so I roasted up a big pan of balsamic summer veggies to go on top. I think it would be fantastic with roasted broccoli and winter squash, too. Feel free to play around with pasta shapes, too. Curly shapes really grab hold of pesto, but penne would work, too. To really lighten it up, cook up some fettuccine or linguine and supplement with squash noodles like I did last summer . Yum.

    Sun-dried tomato pesto pasta with roasted vegetables! cookieandkate.com

    You can go in a lot of different directions with this pesto. Spread it on a sandwich or toast, serve it as a vegetable dip, or thin it out with extra olive oil (or even some water) and use it as a sauce for any number of things. Let me know how you like it!
