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
