Cauliflower Quick Bread

Cauliflower Quick Bread

Whole30 Approved/Paleo

 

This is for those who would like to feel like they are eating a form of bread and are simply looking for something to spread something on, rather than dip. It is cauliflower based so it will taste like cauliflower, it is slightly mushy, because it is cauliflower, BUT it’s a huge change from dipping vegetables and I have to say that I truly enjoy this. Serve warm with an avocado spread, red bell pepper “hummus”, or any kind of sauce {Whole30 compliant} that’ you’ve whipped up 🙂

 

If you’re looking for something a little bit more crunchy then make the balls smaller and flatter.

 

You’ll Need:

  • 1 head cauliflower, riced in the vitamix {all the same consistency} about 3 cups
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp tapioca flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp granulated garlic
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds

Method:

Preheat oven to 400. Roll batter into six equal balls and place on parchment paper on a sheet tray. Cook for 15 minutes, then press down on each of the balls to flatten a bit, sprinkle sesame seeds over evenly then cook for remainder of the time. Let cool 5 minutes then serve with your favorite spread or enjoy on it’s own as a snack.

Whole30 Style Beef & Broccoli

I have loved Thai food and Chinese my entire life and since I’ve decided to eat clean, I have longed for those amazing flavors of soy, teriyaki, and yes, msg. But I certainly do not long for the heavy feeling in my stomach and the extra five pounds I used to gain the next morning from  hearty, delicious mistake I had made the night before.

THIS is a super healthy alternative to replace those dishes and stop the cravings. You’ll wake up feeling like you ate a nice, flavorful, healthy meal.

 

 You’ll Need:

  • 3 crowns broccoli, cut into bite sized pieces
  • ½ red onion, chopped
  • ½ pound sirloin, sliced thin
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • 5 tsp. Olive oil
  • 5 tsp coconut aminos
  • 1 ½ c water
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp powdered ginger
  • 1 tsp red hawaiian salt
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • Salt {Kosher} and pepper to taste

 Method:

 

In a large pan {I use my cast iron pan} add 4 tsp olive oil, red pepper flakes, and onions, let saute for 5 minutes then add broccoli and ½ cup water. Stir to coat all broccoli, let cook on medium heat for 6-8 minutes, continuing to stir. Then add ginger, coconut aminos, rice vinegar, salt, and remaining water, stir and cover for 6 more minutes. Drizzle sesame oil over, mix up and remove from heat.

In a separate pan add remaining olive oil and on high heat add the sirloin and cook until done, about 4 minutes depending on thickness of meat. The meat should just barely be browned so it’s still tender and juicy.

 Serve over cauliflower rice

Roasted Vegetable Scramble

Whole30 Approved

I love creating breakfast from an amazing dinner the night before. There is very little that does not go well with egg whites. This recipe had roasted lemon and garlic asparagus, balsamic caramelized red onions, and sautéed cremini mushrooms. Each vegetable was prepared on its own and combined for the sake of favors in this dish.

 

You’ll Need:

  • 3 egg whites {or egg beaters}
  • 1 c roasted asparagus
  • ½ c sautéed mushrooms
  • ¼ c balsamic red onions
  • 1 spicy sausage link, sliced thin
  • 1 tsp olive oil for cooking
  • 1 tsp salt & pepper

 

Method:

Coat a sauté pan with oil so ingredients do not stick. Add savage, asparagus, onion, and mushrooms, let warm for 3 minutes while stirring, then add egg whites, salt, and pepper. Cook until done, continuing to stir so ingredients do not burn or stick.

 

Serve immediately.

Lemon Garlic Dandelion Greens

Lemon Garlic Dandelion Greens

You’ll Need:

  • 5 cloves of garlic, mined
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground pepper

 

Method:

Coat a large sauté pan with oil, add the stems of dandelion greens first, let cook 2 minutes, then add in the remaining greens along with salt, pepper, and garlic. Cook 5 more minutes, add lemon juice, stir, and turn heat down to cook another 3-4 minutes.

 

Serve with mashed cauliflower and grilled pork.

Balsamic caramelized onions

Balsamic caramelized onions

Whole30 Approved

 

This is a must have in the kitchen. I love onions any way- raw, pickled, roasted, sauteed, caramelized… give me an onion any day of the week! But these are a necessity on whole30. They give that nice sweetness to a savory dish and you can cook them in advance and use them on many dishes.

You’ll Need:

  • 1 large red onion cut in half then sliced very thin
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ c balsamic vinegar

Method:

In a medium sized sauté pan, add 1 tbsp olive oil and all of the onions. Stir to coat all of the onions, add more oil as needed. Cook for 5 minutes while stirring occasionally. Turn heat to low, add balsamic, stir. Let cook until onions shrink and become soft, about 25-30 minutes.

Serve with roasted vegetables, mashed cauliflower, zoodles, eggs, or cauliflower “couscous”. Goes great with grilled pork and chicken. Options are endless!

Refrigerate unused product, keep up to 10 days.
