The Gourmet-O-Matic tm Bread Substitutions Guide

Bread is a food made from cooking a dough of flour and water. It is found, in one form or another, just about everywhere on earth. Thus, there are more varieties of bread out there than you can shake a cooking spoon at.

Add to the above the fact that bread readily accepts mix-ins and toppings and the varieties are limitless.

As with all Gourmet-O-Matic tm Substitutions Guides, the following list is non-exhaustive. It comprises foods that are readily available at chain groceries, fruit markets, specialty shops, by mail order or on-line.

Arepas (corncakes)
Corn Bread
Pancake - e.g., batter, potato, vegetable
Pizza Crust
Rye Bread
Soda Bread
Sourdough Bread
Yorkshire Pudding

For Gourmet-O-Matic tm fare, bread substitutes can be particularly broad in their applications.

Example - The bread substitutes, pancakes and waffles, can easily incorporate vegetables. You can make a scallion-tomato pancake as a bread side dish.

Example - You do not even have to put the bread side dish on the side. For example, an onion-bell pepper waffle can be placed beneath a protein, e.g., chicken breast, for a fancy, Gourmet-O-Matic tm presentation.

Example - top a bread with the "Indian" spice blend and use a chutney for a spread to create a unique side dish.

Recipes using breads and bread substitutes can be found in The FitnessMed tm Guide To Healthy Eating.
