Something New and Delicious: Argentinian Flat Bread

Something New and Delicious: Argentinian Flat Bread

Faina (pronounced "fah-ee-NAH") is a yummy flat bread made of chickpea flour. It's commonly eaten in South American countries like Argentina and Uruguay, but I've traced its origins to Italy somehow... I don't know, I'm not a food historian. What I am is someone who loves trying new exciting foods, and if they also happen to be good for you, then it's bonus time! 

Faina is really easy to make. It's made from chickpea (garbanzo bean) flour, so it's a low carb, high fiber, heart healthy, and really tasty alternative to your regular pizza crust or cracker. Is it vegan? Easily. Is it gluten-free? You betcha. Is it absolutely delectable? Of course! I wouldn't share it with you if it wasn't. 

Italian Sausage Deliciousness: Who Says Healthy Can't Be Yummy?

Italian Sausage Deliciousness: Who Says Healthy Can't Be Yummy?

Just because something is healthy, it doesn't mean it can't also be rich and satisfying. Case in point: today's recipe. 

Who doesn't love some sausage and peppers in a zesty tomato sauce? A big bowl of it, with crusty garlic bread... Mmm, I'm in heaven. But who needs all that fat, right? I certainly don't. Which is why I have made this classically luscious dish into a heart-healthy, you-don't-need-to-go-running-tomorrow, it's-ok-to-eat-some-more mound of comforting deliciousness. Not to mention, it's really easy to make... 

April Showers Bring Italian Sausage and Pepper Stew:

1 (14 oz) can of diced tomatoes. Fresh tomatoes will do too, just chop 'em up. 

1/2 bag of frozen peppers and onions mix. Again, if you got fresh ones, dice away, but I find this easier. 

2-3 cloves of garlic, diced or grated

1 lb of Hot Italian Poultry Sausage. Chicken or turkey will do.

A few handfuls of baby spinach
