Michael Symon's Grilled Flank Steak with Bacon Rosemary Corn (Link)

This is recipe tested by another friend, Miryam, who is also practicing the low sulfur diet herself.  She says:
"I have an incredible recipe for you to post on your blog. We had it last night. It's easy, delicious, not too spendy. All good things."
It looks fantastic, and I can't wait to try it myself.

It looks pretty much like perfection as is, no edits and replacements.  If you are worried about Sherry vinegar, use white instead, although white vinegar is made from petroleum and really isn't "natural" at all.  I'll stick with the Sherry Vinegar, personally.

Low Sulfur Oatmeal "Buttermilk" Pancakes

This one is an original I did based on soaking the oats for 10 minutes before hand in milk.  Only, I decided sour milk since this can produce a light end product when mixed with baking soda (which is in the baking powder).  We all know what happens when you put vinegar and baking soda together, yes?  Fun science experiment!  Also provides lift in non-egg baking recipes.

Low Sulfur Oatmeal "Buttermilk" Pancakes
Recipe by Miriam Mason

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 cups coconut milk

Put vinegar into a 2 cup liquid measuring cup and then pour the coconut milk over the top of it.  Stir it.  In 5-10 minutes, the vinegar completely sours the milk, and you have a low-sulfur version of buttermilk.

1 cup rolled oats

Put the oats in a bowl and pour the soured milk over them and let them soak for at least 10 minutes.

1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp nutritional yeast

Add in the rest of the ingredients and stir until just mixed.  If the batter is too thick, add a tiny bit more milk.  Pour the batter out by 1/3 cup fulls into a hot skillet and cook each side until very lightly browned.

These pancakes taste really good with fruit on top.  If you like bananas, they're good banana pancakes, too.
