Ham & Spinach Calzones (Low Carb and Gluten Free)
I decided to make a LC & GF one, using a version of the dough from the Brazilian and Jamaican hand pies. Rather than serve it with marinara, I had some nice cherry tomatoes – so I made a simple salad of tomatoes, basil, olive oil, salt and pepper – it was nice and fresh tasting. For the filling, I used ricotta, mozzarella, sliced deli ham, and baby spinach. A word of caution though, drain your ricotta first and pre-cook your spinach a bit to get the moisture out. These were delicious fresh but they didn’t keep well in the fridge. The next day, the filling had oozed out and made the dough unpleasant so I scrapped them. I didn’t precook the spinach, or drain the ricotta and I think it was just too much moisture in it to hold over to the next day. If you are making enough for just one meal, then you should be fine – otherwise, take steps to avoid them getting soggy by draining the ricotta and pre-cooking and drying out your spinach. You can flavor these with whatever you like – the spinach and ham is just what I had on hand and it was delicious!!!

ROASTED RED PEPPER SPINACH AND ARTICHOKE DIP
Traditionally, spinach dip, even low carb spinach and artichoke dip, doesn’t usually have roasted red peppers. But I think adding roasted red peppers to the mix adds a boost of flavor. I especially like them in my Roasted Red Pepper and Garlic Aioli Recipe, or even better, in this Roasted Red Pepper, Tomato, and Smoked Gouda Bisque Recipe.

Creamy, Dairy Free Spinach Artichoke Dip
Anything creamy for an appetizer is a winner in my book! When you follow a Paleo diet or have a chronic illness like Hashimotos then it’s safe to say that you don’t eat creamy foods that come from dairy. I remember back when I started eating a Paleo diet and eliminated dairy, it was very hard. Since I am an overcomer, determined to recreate some comforts foods that I loved without the addition of dairy, I was able to adapt and get used to this newfound way of life.
This creamy, dairy-free spinach artichoke dip is the perfect replacement for the dairy-laden dips that can cause joint pain, fatigue, brain fog and even further damage your thyroid if you have Hashimoto’s.
