Cauliflower Crust Pizza Oh cauliflower pizza crust, I have been skeptical of you for so long. So, so long. The first time I attempted a cauliflower crust was back in the day, long before Pinterest existed or I knew what a blog was, after getting a recipe from someone in my local gym. Wrong. Now, I’m so glad that I did. Not only is the crust simple, it is FAST. This gets even better with an array of toppings. This is all you need for your crust: a small (emphasis on small!) This specific method uses a pizza stone or baking sheet. First up, add the cauliflower to your food processor and pulse. You want it to look like cauliflower “snow.” Once your cauliflower is pulsed into tiny crumbs, you want to microwave it. After the cauliflower has cooled, place it in a towel and ring the heck out of it to remove as much liquid as possible. You will be left with something like this—a sort of cauliflower “pulp,” if you will. Add in the cheeses and the spices and mix the mixture until combined. It will look like this!

Coffee-Spiked Banana Bread Recipe Details Easy Grain Free Flatbread: A healthy bread alternative! I know, that’s sounds like an extreme claim. But if you follow a restricted diet, then you know just how liberating it is to have a never-fail staple recipe in your culinary arsenal. This grain free flatbread, a healthy bread alternative, fits the bill when you crave something–for lack of a better term–bready. Even better, it requires only about 5 minutes of prep! If you are on a grain free diet, then you know how comforting it is to have something that can be used for sandwiches. I’ve been enjoying these for breakfast, slathered with raw honey. The strange ingredient in this grain free flatbread is the gelatin. “I don’t have gelatin,” you may be thinking, “can I leave it out?” I know I will be asked about egg substitutes. If you don’t have the butternut squash, you could use mashed acorn squash or sweet potato to make this grain free flatbread.

¿Pan en la dieta paleolítica? Aquí tienes la receta Hasta que he empezado con la dieta paleolítica no era conocedora de lo resultona que es la almendra molida y tampoco de lo mucho que me gusta y lo fácil que es cocinar con ella. Hoy traigo dos variantes de la misma receta y los ingredientes son sencillísimos: Claras de huevo, almendra molida y sal. Primero hice la que sería similar al pan de molde, necesitamos una clara de huevo tamaño mediano por cada 40g aproximadamente de almendra molida. Batimos las claras a punto de nieve con una pizca de sal Añadimos la almendra molida sin batir, mezclando con suavidad para evitar que bajen las claras. Encendemos el horno a 180º y ponemos papel vegetal sobre una fuente, este paso es imprescindible o se te pegará la masa al no llevar aceites o mantequilla. Ponemos la masa sobre el papel y otro papel sobre ella y con un rodillo, aplanamos hasta que quede de la medida que te gusta, recomiendo que mejor fina, se hace más rápido y más uniformemente. Y al horno, 10 minutos y listo. Que de ideas se me ocurren!!
Dairy and Egg Free Strawberry Mousse (GAPS, SCD) Have you seen the Marshmallow Experiment video? Researchers plop a single marshmallow down in front of a child in a closed room and explain, “You can eat the marshmallow now, or wait to eat it and I will bring you another one.”A hidden video camera records the hilarious results. A few kids stoically wait, face glazed over with determination, masters of delayed gratification. Others succumb to the temptation and lick, nibble, or gulp the treat. I’ve always had strong willpower, and I can imagine little six-year-old me sitting fiercely motionless until I earned the second marshmallow. After blending the ingredients together, I stuck a spoon in the food processor bowl and scooped out a generous taste of the unset mousse. Traditional mousses rely on an arduous process of whipping and heating eggs for a stabilized base. This recipe took a lot of experimentation to perfect (yeah, poor me–having to eat all of those mistakes). Creamed Coconut is pureed coconut meat. Why grassfed gelatin?
Cactus Cut Potatoes I don’t eat at Boston Pizza very often, but when I do I always get the Cactus Cut Potatoes. They are crispy and spicy and they come with the most amazing dip. My brother in law found a copycat recipe online for the dip so I gave it a whirl. It is perfect!! This dip is to die for; it tastes just like the stuff at BP! I decided to bake my potatoes instead of frying them, just to cut the fat a wee bit. What you need, For the dip: 6 tbsp. sour cream 1 cup Caesar salad dressing (I used Kraft creamy Caesar) 1 ½ tbsp. finely grated Parmesan cheese 1 ½ tbsp. finely chopped green onion ¼ tsp. dried chili flakes (if you like it spicy you could add in a little more) For the potatoes: 2 large russet potatoes, washed and sliced thinly 3 tbsp. olive oil Salt and Pepper to taste. In a medium bowl mix together the sour cream, Caesar dressing, Parmesan cheese, green onion and chili flakes. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to let the flavours come together. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Serve hot with the dip. Jen
Vegan Gluten Free Black Bean Brownies It seems ludicrous to make your favorite recipes just once, but when you’re a food blogger sometimes you don’t have time for repeats! But, after making a similar version of these black bean brownies a couple years ago I couldn’t help but try them again. They’re fudgy, sweet, and still one of the best brownies I’ve had to date. Never mind they’re loaded with fiber, omega-3s and tons of other good-for-you ingredients. Just last week I attempted a vegan gluten free brownie recipe that was a total flop. Then, I thought, “Why would I make unhealthy brownies if I could make healthy ones that I know I love?” These brownies are ridiculously simple to make. Besides being simple they’re insanely delicious. Enjoy these plain, with some vegan ice cream, dunked in almond milk, slathered with peanut butter or topped with fresh berries (credit to my smart friend Arleigh for the berry idea). Better yet, I have another idea for these beauties coming up next week. Vegan Gluten Free Black Bean Brownies

First of all, make yourself some gooseberry jam. Hands down my favourite jam in the universe! It’s hard to imagine how delicious Spiced Gooseberry is if you have never tried it. Can I say that I learned to make this from my Gran and that I spent hours every summer putting up chutney from my mother’s gooseberry bush? I adapted this recipe from one I found last year at CanadianLiving.com, while I was searching for non-jam ideas for berries (for my Bountiful Berries cooking class, natch). Who needs ham when you can eat a gooseberry sandwhich? SPICED GOOSEBERRY CHUTNEYMakes two cups (two jars). ingredients 1 cups sugar 1/4 cup cider vinegar or lemon juice 1/4 cup water 1/4 tsp salt 2 whole allspice berries 1 cinnamon stick, (about 2 inches/5 cm), broken 6 whole cloves 4 pods green cardamom 2-1/2 cups gooseberries, topped and tailed
Ricas Tortillas de harina saludables sin gluten. Si estás buscando una versión muy fácil de una tortilla de harina saludable (sin harina ni manteca trans) - o una crepa francesa - no busques más. Estas son más o menos a toda prueba y son mucho más flexibles que otras tortillas alternativas que ya he tratado antes que usa más que todo harina de coco como base. Tenía una enorme bolsa de polvo de arrurruz para utilizar (una alternativa de harina sin gluten) así que esto encajaba bastante bien. Estas tortillas tienen la capacidad de doblarse o enrollarse y pueden ser utilizadas para aplicaciones dulces o saladas, y es fácil de hacer un lote doble o triple con antelación y guardarlas para futuras comidas. También son perfectas para algunas comidas sabrosas para llevar, y creo que serían súper popular entre los niños (de cualquier edad, y teniendo en cuenta que son saludables, vale la pena probarlo. Rinde: 8 tortillas Ingredientes: Instrucciones: Romper los huevos en un tazón mediano y batir en la manteca derretida.
Recipe: Spring Fritata If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! A fritata is slightly different from an omelette and perhaps a little more trendy. Fritata is from the italian word, fritta, the feminine past participle of the verb “to fry.” Even more versatile, a fritata can be a very quick dinner that is savory and filling. Do Not Be Afraid of Eggs If you are making this wonderful meal, use pasture raised eggs so that you will get the most out of this nutritious meal. If you are worried about cholesterol, that is another area where conventional advice is sorely off base. If you would like to connect with a local farmer who raises hens on pasture, you might want to contact your local Weston Price Chapter. Use the Correct Pan A fritata needs to be cooked in a skillet that is also oven safe.
