BTD Squeak


Type O variation of English 'Bubble & Squeak'. The traditional English 'Bubble & Squeak' is made with boiled meat & cabbage. The sauce has vinegar and wine. Naturally this recipe is off limits for Type O's (vinegar), so I have created the following variation that's pretty darn good.

  • lean meat
  • 3 cups greens & vegetables
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped walnuts & pine nuts
  • 1/4 cup parsley, minced
  • Garlic, chopped, to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon oils (I combine butter, olive oil & flaxseed oil)[or ghee]
  • mushrooms, to taste [use portobello or other BTD compliant mushrooms]
  • 1 Tablespoon rice or spelt flour or arrowroot
  • 2 Tablespoon lime or lemon juice
  • 1 cup broth (meat or veggie)
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon honey or maple syrup [or agave]
  • sea salt, to taste
  • fresh ground black peppercorns, to taste
  • Bragg Liquid Aminos for flavoring (optional)[or wheat-free tamari]
How to make it:
  1. Set veggies to steam while cooking meat.
  2. Cook meat. I prefer hamburger cooked in frying pan, but any meat will work well. If you have boiled the meat, save the liquid for the broth.
  3. Drain off any grease, leaving meat juices.
  4. Set meat aside.
  5. Add oils to meat juices, saute garlic and mushrooms. Stir in flour or other thickening. If you are using arrowroot, mix it with water first.
  6. Add broth, mustard, lemon or lime, and honey or maple syrup.
  7. Stir while sauce thickens.
  8. By the time the sauce is thickened, veggies should be done.
  9. Make a nest of the veggies on a plate, top with meat, pour sauce over it.
  10. Top with parsley and nuts.
  11. Taste the sauce as it thickens. You may want to add more sweetener or sour.
  12. You may also want to add a little salt or pepper, if you use them.
  13. I like to use Bragg Liquid Aminos for flavoring in sauces and this is one recipe where it works well.
