It gluten free or whatever and no I've Reintroduced gluten back into my diet And my digestion seems to be fine However I do try and keep it to like Ancient grains and like unprocessed Lewton so I'm trying not to eat like White bread and like tortillas and that Sort of stuff yeah here's the bread that I'm having today and this is a really Really awesome bread made from a local Baker and as you can see it's just Traditional sourdough and the only Ingredients are whole wheat rye flour And filtered water it's really dense you Sure don't need many slices to fill yeah But it's really really tasty bread and Super good for yourself and I just keep It in the freezer there because it takes Me a while to go through like a whole Loaf and with bread that doesn't have Any preservatives or anything like that And it preservatives or anything like That in it it sure doesn't last long in The in the kitchen here in the summer so Yeah put it slice it up put in the Freezer and fresh bread whenever you Want it alright so once we have the Bread toasted first thing we're gonna do Is we're gonna put some miso paste on There so you want a nice thin layer of Miso paste it's really strong really Salty so yeah just really really thin Layer of that and then I've got some Spicy brown mustard I'm gonna put on

Yams so I'm gonna chop up all these Veggies get him into the frying pan and Then I'll show you how we're gonna Season it so the mushrooms and the Onions are gonna take the longest to Cook so I'm gonna put them in first so Once the onions and the mushrooms are Starting to cook a little bit you can Add the rest of the veggies so that Stir-fries looking good but it Definitely needs a sauce so I'm gonna Whip one up right here so like most good Sauces starts with a scoop or two of Tahini and I find tahini a little bitter So I always add a little sweetness right Away so it's a bit of maple syrup and Then here the spices I'm gonna add to it So there's a cocoa and then for spice I'm gonna add this smoke to pull a Seasoning it's just some smoked red Jalapenos and then some paprika as well And then I'm also gonna throw in a Squirt of Mustard mustard really seems to help Sauces come together so I always like Having that [Music] Then you want to mix that around so I'm Gonna have a pinch or two of sea salt And then I just put some water in there To thin it a little bit so I'm gonna add Some ground coriander seed to it just to Brighten it up a bit man I really need a kitchen with an island
