I love making this gluten-free chia soda bread because it is simple to prepare, healthy, dairy-free and there is no yeast or kneading. I have added chia seeds because they are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, antioxidants, iron, and calcium, and 1-ounce, serving of chia seeds also contains 5.6 grams of protein. Soda bread is best when eaten fresh, but toasting a slice or making garlic bread the next day makes this bread a winner!
I adore broccoli. Maybe, subconsciously, that is why I decided to blog about it on Valentines Day. I just cant get enough of this delicious cruciferous vegetable. Did you know that it contains almost twice as much vitamin C as an orange? Amazing, huh? Usually I stick to roasting it with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt to help bring out its natural sweetness. Cooked like that, it is better than popcorn. My husband and I often devour a whole baking tray of the crispy little florets. But today I decided to make something a bit different this roasted broccoli and white bean soup.
