This is an very tasty and easy to make bread. This is based on the recipe by Tessa Arias. My version uses garlic, onion, and pepper. This recipe is quite good but I am still fine-tuning the recipe.
(1 package) instant yeast
Dried rosemary, crushed
olive oil, divided
grated parmesan cheese
Thrive chopped onion
Fine, ground pepper
Combine the yeast and water in a large mixing bowl and wait a few minutes for yeast to activate.
Add half the flour and stir with a wooden spoon.
Add the rest of the ingredients and the remaining flour and stir until combined.
Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour. Or, you can let the dough rise in the skillet (next step).
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Brush 2 tablespoons olive oil over the bottom of a 10″ or 12″ cast iron skillet. Dust bottom of pan with a little flour to make the bread easier to remove. You can also sprinkle some salt and pepper in the skillet, if desired.
Sprinkle the dough and your hands with flour before shaping it into a rough disk (dough will be sticky). Place the dough in the skillet, cover loosely, and let it rise about 30 minutes until puffy.
Drizzle additional olive oil over the top of the bread. Slash the dough with a sharp knife to create an X shape. Sprinkle with rosemary leaves. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle all over with the Parmesan cheese. Return to oven and bake for an additional 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
I am still experimenting with this recipe. It produced turkey with a nice, fruity flavor.
Salt (or 1 cup of coarse salt)
The basic fruity brine was very good but I want to experiment with adding some savory notes to the fruity flavor. I have not tried this yet but I want to add another carrot, diced onion, and some parsley to the brine. I do not know how this addition will work but will update this post after I try it.
2 quarts 2 quarts
Apple juice (if using concentrate reduce water by 1/2 can) Orange juice (if using concentrate reduce water by 1/2 can)
You can use THRIVE meats and vegetables to enhance existing soups and ramen. Place your soup in a pan and add whatever THRIVE products that you like. Heat the soup on a low heat. This allows the THRIVE to rehydrate and cook. You can use THRIVE to turn a boring soup into something tasty and more healthy.
The THRIVE enhanced ramen can work particularly well with kids. If they can make ramen then they can make healthier and more flavorful THRIVE ramen. All they need to do is heat the ramen water, after the water is hot add a variety of THRIVE ingredients, add the ramen noodles and cook as normal. The enhanced ramen will taste better and have more nutritional value.
Since THRIVE products are cleaned, cut, and ready to use all you need to do is open the can and add some product. If you want finely chopped product then place the product in your hand and crush it. Good food can be very easy to make.

This is a teriyaki marinade that can be used as a marinade for jerky, meat, chicken, etc. Vary this recipe to suit your taste. This recipe will make enough marinade for about 2 pounds of jerky meat. Allow the meat to marinade between one and two days depending on the thickness (marinate longer for thicker cuts).
Onion power, or 5 tsp Thrive Chopped Onions (turn to powder)
Aleppo chili, ground
Grind the peppercorns, Thrive Chopped Onions, sesame seeds and parsley to a fine powder.
Mix all liquid and dry ingredients in a sauce pan.
Heat on low for about 15 minutes and stir occasionally.
Remove from heat and allow to cool.
When cool pour over meat and marinade at least 12 hours.
