Samhain/Halloween Menu Gluten Free
2014
So what do make for Samhain/Halloween?  There are so many choices but this is our menu this Friday.   First I'm making Pumpkin Tortillas to hold Pulled pork that is flavored with Mustard BBQ Sauce with a side or topping of sautéed cabbage.  For Desert I'm making Baked Apples in the Microwave topped with Vanilla Ice Cream.  
Pumpkin Tortillas
2 Large Eggs
1 Tablespoons Butter, melted or fat of choice(.4oz, 11g)
1/2 Cup Pumpkin puree or Sweet Potatoes, mashed (4.2 oz, 119g)
1 1/2 Cups Tapioca Flour or Arrowroot(7.1oz, 200g)
1/4 Cups Chia Seed Meal or ground Flaxseeds (1oz, 29g)
1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1 Cup Water
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic or Spice of choice (Optional)
Black Pepper (Optional)

 

Instructions

  1. Mix together eggs, melted butter, pumpkin or sweet potato until smooth.
  2. Stir in arrowroot or tapioca starch, Chia seed meal and sea salt. (If you are using the chili powder, Garlic, Black Pepper or the vanilla/cinnamon, add it now)
  3. Add in water and whisk until well combined. Batter will be runny.
  4. Heat an 8 inch skillet on medium heat.  It's best to get the pan hot before putting the batter in.  Add in oil to the pan makes the tortillas greasy to pick up. 
  5. Remove the pan from heat and using a ½ cup measuring cup, add ½ cup batter to the pan. Swirl the pan so the batter completely covers the bottom of the skillet.
  6. Put the pan back on the burner for about 30 seconds - 1 minute.
  7. You'll know it's time to flip when the tortilla moves around easily when you shake the pan. So flip and now cook the other side for 30 seconds - 1 minute.
Repeat for remaining batter. Make sure to give the batter a little stir each time. You will have enough for 6 tortillas if you use an 8 inch skillet and ½ cup batter per tortilla.

 

For a sweeter version add:

1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Mexican Style:  Add 1/2 teaspoon Chili Powder

 

Mustard BBQ Sauce

1 Cup Spicy Brown Mustard (9.1oz, 218g)
1/2 Cup Black Strap Molasses (5.8oz, 164g)
1/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar (2.3oz, 66g)
1/4 Cup Honey (3oz, 86g)
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil (.4oz, 10g)
1/4 Teaspoon Thyme
1/4 Teaspoon Lemon Balm
1/4 Teaspoon Oregano
1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper
 If you want heat with a nightshade add 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper (optional)

Combine all ingredients.  It's best if it sits overnight but it's still good right after mixing together.  Store in the Refrigerator.
