Onion Souffle Cheese Dip

Really like this dip!  It is an indulgence, so we'll only have it once or twice a year.  I saute the chopped onions first to carmelize them but you dont have to.  To vary this mixture: replace cream cheese with any soft goat or sheep cheese, instead of a pecorino, use any hard grating cheese.  Add a blue cheese.  Bake the whole mixture in individual ramekins and serve room temp or warmed, not hot.  Serve with crackers or thin sliced toasted bread.

3-4 onions chopped
24 oz cream cheese
2 cup pecorino
1/2 cup mayo

Spelt Tortillas

I love avocado and sprouts in a sandwich - that goes way back... invented in California, I good!!!

 Spelt Tortillas

2 ¾ c. spelt flour
1 tsp. salt
1 ½ tsp. baking powder
1 TBS. coconut oil
¾ c. hot water + more, as needed

Mix everything together to form a dough ball and let it proof for one hour.  roll to preferred size paper thin and fry in cast iron skillet for 30 seconds on each side - do not overcook.
We had a cucumber bonanza harvest this year.  Use them to make pickles - bread % butter pickles - and made t he Greek tzatziki, and use in sandwiches like the one above, in addition to salads.
