One of my favourite recipes…

To keep you busy until you’re able to visit me in the Teaching Kitchen,
try this gluten-free / dairy-free, Paleo, and/or AIP recipe that is part of my weekly repertoire.

Olive & Sardine Bread

— gluten-free & dairy-free —

This savoury bread is an excellent starter to any meal. 
Moist and full of healthy fats, it goes
especially nicely with a glass of kombucha!


  • 1 can of sardines
  • 80g green olives, chopped coarsely
  • 60g sun-dried tomatoes, chopped coarsely

  • 60g rice flour
  • 60g buckwheat flour
  • 60g tapioca starch
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp herbes de Provence
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard (mi-fort)
  • 125ml coconut milk
    • Preheat the oven to 350*F.
    • Strain the liquid from the sardines and, using your fingertips, break them into a crumbly mixture.  Strain the liquid from the tomatoes and chop them coarsely.  Chop the olives coarsely.  Set aside.
    • Combine all of the dry ingredients into one bowl and mix well.  Combine all of the wet ingredients into  a second bowl and mix well.
    • Pour the dry-ingredient mixture onto the wet ingredients, and stir into a thick batter.
    • Pour the sardine / tomato / olive mixture onto the batter and stir just until equally distributed.
    • Pour into bread pans, large or small, and bake at 350*F for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean and the top begins to brown.
    • Remove from bread pans immediately.  Cool before serving.
