Biaxin xl pak, Back in early fall when it was just starting to get cool outside, I wanted to make a West Indian-inspired savory vegetable tart with a lower wheat/gluten content crust. Too bad it wound up being a fail. It was a delicious one, but hardly one I'd recommend since it took a long time to prepare and was kind of ugly looking. May you learn from my mistakes, prescription for ear infection.
I came across this simple recipe on Epicurious for Savory Summer Tarts. Although I wanted to make two normal-sized tarts instead of of little ones, I figured the base crust recipe would be a perfect to mess around with, biaxin xl pak.
I've mentioned several times here that try to avoid eating processed food or foods containing wheat or gluten when cooking at home. I don't have any allergies; that's just how I prefer to cook for myself. Biaxin for strep, To cut back on the wheat flour in the crust, I decided to try my hand at making quinoa flour. You may remember my love of this whole grain from from my coconut quinoa and jerk pork recipe in June. Biaxin xl pak, I use it in place of rice, pasta … I use it everywhere when I cook.
I quickly Googled how to make quinoa flour and found a post that said to just dump it in a blender and call it a day, which is what I did, biaxin xl 500 mg. Had I found this slightly more detailed post, it may have prevented the minor disaster I'm about to relay. From eHow.com:
If you have not used quinoa flour before, Biaxin for strep throat, try to pick a recipe that already contains quinoa flour so that you will have a chance to learn the specific effects of its taste and texture in baking.
If you would like to substitute quinoa flour in a recipe that does not originally call for it, be sure to keep a few things in mind. Because the flavor is so strong and its texture not necessarily suitable to produce a well-structured baked good on its own, it may be safest to use only a small proportion of quinoa flour in baked goods, using all-purpose flour for the rest of your recipe's flour requirement.
I replaced one cup of wheat flour with homemade quinoa flour, biaxin xl pak directions. I used a little less butter than the recipe called for due to the natural oils in quinoa, and I pre-baked the crust longer so that it set better, biaxin xl pak.
For the savory tart filling, I roasted my CSA veggie share that week: squash, new potatoes and a red bell pepper. Order biaxin, I tossed the veggies with some olive oil, sea salt and jerk seasoning spice mix before roasting. As a binder, I used silken tofu that I blended with some of the cooked vegetables to create a roasted vegetable cream between the layers of squash/potatoes/etc.
I had caramelized some onions, medication for ear infection, so I topped the assembled tarts with wisps of buttery onion and thin slices of tomato in the hopes that the tomato slices would also roast a bit on top of it all.
I used a recipe for yogurt-mint dipping sauce from Super Natural Cooking by Heidi Swanson of 101 Cookbooks Biaxin xl pak, to go with the tart. Here's a hint when making the dip: use Greek yogurt. It will make it tangier and even more delicious. Biaxin xl 500mg, If there was any plus side to this experiment, it was discovering how much I loved that dip.
In the end, after I cooked the tarts and let them cool slightly, I cut a slice and it fell apart almost entirely, prescription for ear infection. It would not hold together, biaxin xl pak. I couldn't bake it any longer, as the crust would have burned. I was discouraged, Biaxin xl 500mg clarithromycin, but I was also stuck with my failed experiment as my lunch for the week. After one serving (which at least tasted good), I popped both tarts into the fridge.
The next day when I went to cut a slice to pack up for lunch, I was overjoyed to find the crust behaving like a real crust … it was holding together like nothing ever happened, prescriptions for bladder infections.
Biaxin xl pak, I thought maybe I just missed a step for quinoa flour-based goodies, and it just needed to chill overnight and it would be fine. No such luck. When I reheated it for lunch, it fell apart. Buy biaxin online, What did I learn. Cooking is a different animal when using nut flours or other grain-based flours that are high in natural oils. Before, I knew gluten-free flours were challenging to work with because gluten helps hold things together, biaxin xl pak. But I hadn't considered that flours made of grain (versus nut) could have natural oils in them that would also make it difficult for them to stick together. If I tried this again, I'd skip the butter entirely because I think the quinoa flour had enough oil without it, biaxin for ear infections, and would have had a better chance of staying together. At least I learned something.
