Savory Sourdough Pancakes and Spicy Spinach




I tend to be skeptical about bread and gluten. But sourdough is super delicious and possibly removes a lot of the harmful side-effects of gluten. My current thoughts on the subject tend to be that I feel fine with it. For the gluten-tolerant, sourdough is a super easy and super cheap way to fuel oneself. 

I’ve had some ups and downs when it comes to making sourdough bread, I think my starter is not quite up to snuff yet. But pancakes seem to work really well even when your starter is not super great. For the recipe for the starter and pancakes I followed this one. To make it more of a meal I also cooked up some frozen spinach.

Easy Spicy Spinach


  • 1 box of frozen spinach
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1.5 Tablespoons grass-fed butter
  • freshly ground pepper


Defrost the spinach (or if you’re like me just put it directly in the pan and stir impatiently.) In a pan toss together spinach, butter and salt. Add in hot sauce, and ground pepper. Done!



Welcome to Sarah Reads and Eats

Hello, World!

Welcome to Sarah Reads and Eats. I hope to use this space to share recipes, review books, and tell you my many thoughts on everything under the sun.

Some random statements about me/my beliefs:

  • I like to eat REAL food. I love knowing exactly where my food comes from, how it was raised, how it affects my health, how it nourishes both me and my community.
  • Diets are dumb. I’ve done a bunch of them. I’ve counted calories. I’ve had lists of no-foods. I’ve done 30-day challenges. I will not do such things anymore.
  • You can be fat and be healthy. I am one such person.
  • I strive to be a good person. For me that means recognizing and hopefully acting against racism, sexism, homophobia, able-ism and all the rest.
  • I like to read. I like discussing what I read even more.

Well that should be enough for now. More to come soon!
