There are many different buzz words that explain this phenomenon: flexitarian, semi-vegetarian, and week day vegetarian; where you only eat meat on the week-ends. But anyway you want to say it, you are cutting back on the meat you eat. Some do it for health reasons, animal rights, the environment or all of the above!

Indian Fry Bread Recipe


 1 cup unbleached flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon powdered milk
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup water
Vegetable oil for frying

Mix flour, salt, powdered milk, and baking powder into a large bowl. Pour the water over the flour mixture all at once and stir the dough with a fork until it starts to form one big clump.
Flour your hands. Mix the dough, trying to get it to form a ball. You want to mix this well, but you do NOT want to knead it. Like you would with biscuits. Over mixing make them tough tasting.
Divide into 4. Roll out until they are 5 to 7 inch in diameter .
Heat one inch or so of the vegetable oil in a heavy pan. When it reaches 350 degrees place one circle in the hot oil.  Fry for about 3 minutes or until brown.  You do want to try to push down on the dough to help it brown.  Careful of the hot oil splashing.. It will get bumpy and lumpy but that is ok.

Place on a paper towel to absorb hot oil.    They can be placed in a oven at 200 to keep warm if needed. You can refrigerate them and reheat in a 350 degree F. oven for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.

Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on hot fry bread for sweet treat!!!
