Cactus Club Update on Gluten Free 2018

No comments
We recently went on a date night to the Cactus Club at West Edmonton Mall.  Amanda has been several times with friends, but it has been a while since we went together.

Cactus Club is actually one of the first places we went to after Amanda's diagnosis of Celiac Disease.  Although the menu has changed, their ability to deliver tasty gluten free food has not.

They do have a separate gluten free menu if you ask.  They indicate what menu items are gluten free, and what the modifications are from their standard menu.  Check out their life style choices menu online which include, gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options items separated out.

What we tried this time was so delicious.  One of the newer trends are Poke Bowls.  Which is  basically deconstructed sushi/sushi in a bowl.

There is only one sauce omitted and crispy tempura from the Poke Bowl.  It is beautifully arranged with tuna, edamame, mango, avocado, cucumber, radish, lettuce and rice.  Not to mention deliciously seasoned!

Gluten Free Sweet Potato Bread Anyone?

No comments
Okay lets be honest here.

I really wouldn't call this sweet potato bread.


Just like this isn't a steak!  No matter how you cut it and season it.

BUT!

You know what?  This sweet potato bread thing works!  I just wouldn't call it bread.  It makes a great gluten free sweet substitute for bread.

All we did was slice the sweet potato and toast it!  You usually have to run it twice in the toaster to get it cooked.  Don't over do the sweet potato or it will just get too soft. It should be a little el dante so it has has some bite to it instead of being mush.  You should be able to pick it up if you want, or use a knife to cut it.

We have only tried it for breakfast.  "Made" the sweet potato slices, then added a fried egg, cheese and a slice of meet and put in the toaster oven for bake and melt the cheese.

It tastes delicious, I think it is because of the nice sweet taste of the potato. So thank you to whomever thought of this!  BUT, I wouldn't call it bread.

Ingredients

1 Sweet potato
2-4 eggs
2-4 slices of cheese
2-4 meet slices (ham, turkey etc.)

Directions

Slice the sweet potato into flats about a quarter inch thick.  You should be able to get 3-5 slices out of one potato

Place in toaster/toaster oven/oven.  If you use a toaster or toaster oven, you will probably have to run it twice.

While the potato is going, quickly fry up the eggs.

When potato is to desired softness (don't let it turn to mush), layer on a baking sheet sweet potato, cheese, egg and meat.  Put in oven/toaster oven and heat up to melt cheese for 2-3 minutes.

Enjoy!
