Today I made her bagel recipe and everyone loved them! I used chia seeds (ground in a nut grinder first) instead of flax and I left out the poppy seeds. You can see the recipe here: Elana's Paleo Bagels.
My son wanted some cream cheese and since we don't eat dairy, I had to be creative. I found a recipe here http://www.healthfulpursuit.
"Dairy Free Creamy Cheese"
1 1/2 cups cashews
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
around a 1/4 cup water (enough so that the blender will work, but not so much that it is runny)
I don't plan ahead for recipes well. When I get a taste for something, I want to make it right away. So, I didn't have 24 hours to soak cashews. But, I do have a high speed blender. So, I just placed the first 3 ingredients into the blender and blended on really high until smooth. Then, I mixed in sea salt to taste.
At first I thought that the apple cider vinegar flavor was too strong. But, after I placed it into the refrigerator for a few hours, the taste was perfect! And the texture was also just right for spreading or even dipping. I had to make myself stop eating! My son and husband ended up enjoying their bagels with organic strawberry preserves, and everyone was happy!
