Tip: Beet stalks and beet greens make a delicious sauté so don’t throw away! Oil, lemon, garlic, pinch of salt, done. ⁠

It’s the catalyst for why @glutenfreebakingacademy was built. It was a simple staple that was truly missed (thanks, gluten allergies) and that needed to change. 7 years later, we’re still teaching bakers of all kinds to make flatbreads, quick breads, yeasted breads, and sourdough from home. All recipes are whole-grain, gum-free, and dairy-free (and that includes egg-free). You can get a course tour in the bio link to see if we’re a good fit for you. ⁠
