A quick and salty bite is exactly what we all need.
Sometimes moments of great hunger suddenly meet us.
On these moments I like to have a quick and super indulging recipe up my sleeve,
A good and filling recipe that gives me exactly what I need.
And this bun is exactly what this recipe is.
Within four minutes, including washing the dishes, The bun is ready to contain whatever you like.
And what else is magical and marvelous about it you ask?
It can be soft and juicy,
It can be crispy and snippy,
It can contain anything you want it to,
It can soak liquid and steamy egg yolk.
And it’s a one and only,
And the whole thing is made out of five ingredients,
Simple, easy and filled with nutritional values.
Michael is in love with this bun.
Sometimes he asks for a soft almond bun filled with date honey as an afternoon snack.
Just like that,
Indulging sweet and good.
And no one is happier than me to serve him with this indulgent snack next to a fresh sliced fruit.
It’s my ultimate snack,
It also became my indulgent breakfast recently .
It’s quick and I love it,
Within a few minutes I have a fresh, warm and indulging bun.
You have to try it, I guarantee it’s one of the most exciting bites out there 🙂
I remember the beginning of my celiac journey.
It was somewhere in my second year of my degree in naturopathy.
I was confused and equipped with a lot of knowledge I gained and didn’t know what to eat.
Every food I accountered was made out of ingredients I didn’t want to put in my body, and that’s when it all began.
It started off by me wanting to build for myself, and later on for whoever is here with me, a healthy world that is filled with logic, wealth and countless textures.
At the same time I was on my celiac journey,
My good friend, Yarden, who went to school with me has started a wild journey of her own after surprisingly discovering she has diabetes.
And so we joined hands and started walking this mutual journey of getting reacquainted with our body,
With its abilities,
With its limitations,
With what’s good for it,
And with what’s not as good for it.
The journey is empowering and filled with wonderful learning,
To this day, we still hold hands in this journey of ours,
Each one in her own field.
Today Yarden is a naturopathy therapist specializes in diabetes,
And I am a naturopathy therapist who would give added value to any celiac person who will come to see me.
And this is how we took the lemons and made the tastiest most exciting lemonade out of them.
Because all we did was to make our lives better and more exciting,
Make our food inviting and not threatening,
And there’s no better way to pass this journey on to whomever comes across our way.
This almond bun was born recently,
But it’s been in my mind for a while.
I’ve met a few versions of it online in the past,
Yarden told me about it number of times,
And in the past few weeks I have decided to develop its recipe from scratch, my way.
The precision came along after many tries,
Because I love it when the bite answers a lot of needs,
So people will be excited to meet it,
So it’ll stay in the heart of each one of them,
And of course so that it’ll provide whomever encounters it peace and a lot of joy.
So you got it right,
This bite fits not only celiac people,
It fits everyone,
But in a broader way,
It suits diabetes,
And whoever chose paleo diet, or legumes diet,
Whoever is on a low-carb dies,
And for whoever feels like treating themselves to something else and different.
So run off to experiment,
Tell everyone you meet about this happiness,
And don’t ever forget to enjoy your food and the wealth it provides you 🙂
May we all have happy days, filled with smiles and fulfillment 🙂
Two Minutes Almond Bun
Ingredients: suitable for one bun a micro-safe small bowl 10cm (3.9”) diameter
- 1 egg size M / L
- 2 tablespoons water
- Pinch of salt
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ cup almond flour (For alternatives, have a look at “A little extra From Me”)
- In a small bowl put the egg, salt, baking powder, water and almond flour and mix until forming a uniform slightly chewy texture.
- Choose a micro-safe bowl, I chose one with straight walls to create a perfect bun shape, my bowl is 10cm (3.9”) diameter. Oil the bottom and walls of the bowl a little and put the mixture inside the bowl. Flatten the mixture well and put in the microwave for between 2-2½ minutes, depending on the power level of your microwave (In my microwave it takes 2½ minutes).
- After baking in the microwave the bun is ready. You can eat it soft and airy or burn it a little, there are two burning techniques that I recommend. You can cut the bun in two on its wide side or leave it whole whatever you like. The first technique is using a hot pan with a little olive oil and the second is in a panini press but try not to squash the bun so it’ll remain airy and chubby.
Fill the bun with all that is good, any filling will be welcome, the bun likes to contain anything and then serve with great pleasure 🙂
A little extra from me:
- I recommend making and serving in proximity to when you make it.
- Pregnant women – try eating the bun after burning it for the sake of feeling safe in terms of cooking the egg.
- You can also make the bun, cool it for a little bit and wrap it and take it with you to work or a picnic, just try to wrap it while it’s already cold and not hot.
- Can be baked in an oven-safe pan, in a preheated oven to 355°F (180°C) for between 5-10 minutes.
- Almond flour can be substituted for oat flour. If you choose to make this change, use 1 egg, 4 tablespoons of oat flour, 2 tablespoons of water, ½ teaspoon of baking powder and a pinch of salt. Mix it all together, Put in an oiled bowl and put in the microwave for two minutes and it’s ready 🙂
