Green Pizza with a Cauliflower Base. It struck us that we haven’t posted a pizza recipe here in a while.

Green Pizza with a Cauliflower Base

Which perhaps had you thinking that we don’t eat pizza very often in our home? Well that’s not actually true. We eat lots of pizza, but most of the time it’s not the super greasy kind. For us, pizza can actually be a quite fun and fresh way to eat vegetables. It’s of course also one of the easiest ways to cook together with your kids. The recipe is originally from our book. To make this unconventional pizza base you just mix raw cauliflower into rice-like consistency. Health by chocolate. Raw Dark Chocolate with Goji Berries.

health by chocolate

Doesn't that just sound sexy? Yes, it does. All this glorious chocolate has in it is cacao, coconut butter and a bit of natural sweetener. I added some vanilla, mesquite, sea salt and goji berries for extra decadence and some colour.Who would've thought eating chocolate could add nutrition to your diet?

Slutty No-Carb Pasta

This recipe is in no way like Slutty Brownies. In fact it’s quite the opposite. A low carb, sugar free, deliciously light and healthy meal. There’s a time and a place for Slutty Brownies, but if you’re following my Anti Diet, then you need to balance them out with some skinny options, like this. Spaghetti alla puttanesca is an old school Italian recipe translated as “spaghetti a la whore”. But whatever the reason, the sauce is tangy, rich, salty, fresh and requires minimal washing up. Can you imagine a better midnight snack?! I replace traditional pasta with Coodles (courgette noodles) just as we did for this recipe. Deliciously light, crunchy and the perfect vehicle for its slutty sauce. To serve 2 you’ll need: 3 courgettes (zucchini) Anchovies (you wont taste them, they just give a salty richness to the dish) 2 cloves of garlic Handful of capers Handful of pitted black olives Chilli flakes Tin of tomatoes Olive oil.

Although there isn't always time to create all the dishes on my wish list, days like today give me a chance to try a new recipe (and enjoy that my favorite flowers are back in season). Potato crusts had been on my radar for a little while and I had a bunch of sweet potatoes perfect to experiment with (i.e. about to go bad). I found a recipe for spinach quiche on Pinterest and modified to fit with my current pantry supplies. Sweet Potato Crusted Spinach Quiche Ingredients: 6 small sweet potatoesOlive oil spray1 bunch organic spinach1/2 small onion1 clove garlic4 eggs1 cup grated fresh mozzarellaSpring herbs (dill, parsley, chives) to taste1 tablespoon organic white miso (optional)1/4 cup goat cheese1/4 cup asiago cheese (to sprinkle on top)Sea salt and pepper to taste Instructions: Recipe for Zucchini Crust Vegetarian Pizza Margherita (on the grill or in the oven)

This seems to be the summer for pizza crust experiments at Chez Kalyn, and this recipe for Vegetarian Zucchini-Crust Pizza Margherita was inspired by the Cauliflower-Crust Vegetarian Pizza I made last month.

Recipe for Zucchini Crust Vegetarian Pizza Margherita (on the grill or in the oven)

After trying that pizza with a crust made of cooked cauliflower, cheese, almond meal, and an egg, I started wondering why you couldn't make a similar type of crust with zucchini.Jake was skeptical, and it did take us two tries to get a crust we were happy with, but we both loved the way the zucchini added flavor to this crust and really complemented the simple tomato sauce, fresh basil, and fresh Mozzarella that are the traditional toppings for Pizza Margherita. This is a pizza recipe that's not only vegetarian, but also gluten-free and low carb and it's another answer to that zucchini problem that so many people have this time of year. Use a food processor, or the large sides of a hand grater to grate the zucchini.

While the zucchini cools, make the sauce. Cauliflower Crust Grilled Cheese. Don’t worry people, I’m going to cauliflower crust rehab in a day or so.

Cauliflower Crust Grilled Cheese

They say the first step in solving a problem is to admit that you have a problem. So, here it goes: “Hello, my name is Mike and I’m a cauliflower crust addict” “Hello Mike” “Over a year ago I’ve first tried cauliflower crust and since then I’ve been making it at least twice a week. It started out with pizza, then it was calzone, hot pockets, breadsticks and stromboli. I can’t seem to stop. I need help!” At its base, grilled cheese is one of the most simple things ever. 15 minutes in the oven and voila’. Let them cool and then you’re pretty much ready to make your grilled cheese. Skinny Omelette Recipe. It has been well over four years since I started featuring recipes on this site.

Skinny Omelette Recipe

In all that time I've never done (or featured) an omelette recipe. I like the idea of omelettes, but as I mentioned here, they aren't very exciting. Not that they couldn't be. When I reflect on the past ten omelettes I've encountered, more times than not they have been huge bulging envelopes of egg oozing steady rivers of melted cheese. They are nearly always served with a side of greasy home-fries. In my mind an omelette is a beaten egg (or eggs) cooked in a pan and stuffed with good stuff. So what you see above is what I whipped up for breakfast this morning. I used my favorite pesto, a small handful of greens, and crumbled cheese in addition to the omelette-egg base. . - More Breakfast / Brunch Recipes -
