  1. Why coconut oil and flour? What’s the purpose? It would be something new, and I thought I’d ask before investing it something that would take up so limited space.

    • Mary, I looked up coconut flour equivalency to regular flour, and just 3 tablespoons of coconut flour is equivalent to 1 cup of regular flour!!!
      So it has a much greater thickening ability than other flours; so if you use regular flour, I would increase the amount of flour to 1/2 cup, at least. And add a small amount (1/4 tsp) of baking soda to make up for the additional flour.
      As for the coconut oil, I’d use butter (if it calls for a type of oil that is solid at room temp, the closest replacement would be butter or shortening).

  2. Very tasty. The whole family loved it including my incredibly picky boyfriend. I used olive oil instead of the coconut oil because I didn’t have any on hand. Added beets and and a honey nut squash and left out the yellow squash. Appears to be a recipe that can be adjusted to what’s fresh and on hand! Will make again.

  3. I believe that this recipe is great for anytime meal of the day. Even when unexpected visit shows up. Great idea and thank you.
