GF Irish Soda Bread, etc.

GF White Soda Bread

Adjusted from from a recipe from the Society for the Preservation of Soda Bread
(no, I'm not kidding: http://www.sodabread.info/)


4 cups (16 oz) of all purpose flour (I'd use 2 1/2 cups oat flour - oats pulverized into flour in a food processor - and 1 1/2 cups potato flour -- can't have oats? use 2 cups sorghum and 1/2 cup amaranth, millet, or quinoa)
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1 Teaspoon salt
14 oz of buttermilk


Preheat the oven to 425 F. degrees. Lightly grease a cake pan.
In a large bowl sieve and combine all the dry ingredients.
Add the buttermilk to form a sticky dough.
Shape into a round flat shape in a round cake pan and cut a cross in the top of the dough.
Cover the pan with another pan and bake for 30 minutes (this simulates the /bastible pot/). Remove cover and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
The bottom of the bread will have a hollow sound when tapped so show it is done.
Cover the bread in a tea towel and lightly sprinkle water on the cloth to keep the bread moist.


5 pounds corned brisket of beef
palm full of peppercorns
1 medium-sized green cabbage, quartered or cut in wedges
6 potatoes, peeled and quartered
fresh parsley
Melted butter (about 4 tablespoons)

Place the corned beef in water to cover with the peppercorns or after checking the ingredients use the one which may come with the corned beef)
Cover the pot, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 5 hours or until tender, skimming occasionally.
(Or crock pot it!)
About an hour before meet is ready, start potatoes to boil
During the last 15 minutes, add the cabbage
Transfer meat
When serving toss fresh parsley and butter atop the potatoes

this looks so good, and really simple. But could you help me out with something? I'm vegan and I need a non-soy substitute for buttermilk...do you have any ideas? thanks!

Having not tried this 'vegan style', I'm not sure how it'll come out -- but my first attempt would be to use 14 oz of homemade nut milk plus 1 t of apple cider vinegar -- I saw homemade nut milk b/c commercial ones often have oils and such which may not lead to a uniform mixture -- but they are worth a try -- let me know how it comes out -- and I'll see what I come up with on this end too! :)
