In looking for a way to avoid wheat and grains I found this recipe. It has absolutely no grains like wheat or oats, so it avoids the allergy problem, and the carb count is only 4 g of carbs per serving.
It is full of flavor and texture to keep it interesting.
I will try to get a picture posted soon. Bon appétit!
