Cauliflower Cakes with a Fresh Herb Pesto

OK big news today!  When I was visiting my friend Teal at Sons and Daughter farm and winery I learned a few things.  First I had an amazing wine sampling then of course I went for my 2 jugs of kombucha.  While I was there her and David took me on a little tour and my takeaway was Yucca Root.  OMG...

Teal brought my a tasting of tapioca pudding their chef made from yucca root and it was the best I ever had.  I just love the texture of tapioca pudding and it was to die for!  Really.....

She also told me that the yucca root made a great thickening agent and also how you make cassava flour.

While I am doing our HewFit Challenge at our gym and the "game" excludes any flours even (almond, coconut, tapioca, etc) so I grabbed a yucca root to make Cauliflower cakes.  

Enjoy!

Cauliflower Rice and Vegetables

This is a perfect side with any dish or add as many vegetables you want to make it a meal.  You can either add your favorite flavor profile; Italian, Asian, Indian, Mexican, etc...   

I love to make a big batch and scoop out servings during the week. Just warm and enjoy (or eat cold)

In our modern age you can now find riced cauliflower in the freezer section and ready to go.  Or you can pick up a head of cauliflower and rice yourself.

Cauliflower Rice Succotash

We just love summer vegetables.  At our summer lake house we love to grill and entertain.  My husband and I just love salmon and my Cauliflower Rice Succotash was the perfect accompany for our dinner.  Everything was cooked on the grill and we ate outside.

Perfect summer dinner with friends.

Cindy's Note:  I made this dish on the grill.  You can also prepare in your own kitchen stove top. Feel free to boil the corn.

Channa Masala

My husband was in India a few months back and our friends sent him home with a suitcase full of spices.  I decided to make a dish with some of my favorite ingredients chickpeas and peas.  Traditionally this dish is not prepared with green peas but I love them so they were added and I loved every bite!  

I have to admit that these spices are not used often in my kitchen and the combination was a little hot " spicy hot" for me but I still enjoyed it very much.  I will defiantly make it again.

I also made a batch of my Paleo Naan Bread to dip in the sauce and what a super yummy dish!  

 

Coconut Roasted Cauliflower with Parsley Pesto
  • Time: 3 hours
  • Complexity: easy

Coconut Roasted Cauliflower with Parsley Pesto

This recipe was inspired by Alex Guarnaschelli while i was watching the food network during the Thanksgiving weekend.  I just love cauliflower and have an herb garden which includes parsley therefore this recipe was created!  I also always have canned coconut milk on hand for my smoothies.  

During her segment she suggested the cauliflower be marinated for at least 2 hours.  I marinated for exactly 2 hours.  She said it could be marinated overnight and I don't think that's a great idea because I marinated one overnight at first and the coconut over powered the other favors so this recipe is my #2 cauliflower.

I was home alone for a few days after Thanksgiving and made this for me.  It lasted me several meals and I enjoyed every bite.  My parsley pesto is more like a dressing then a pesto.

Enjoy!

Easy falafel Recipe

I have been making so many Greek salads for Brooke and I this summer.  My granddaughter loves salads, vegetables and chicken.  

My future daughter-in-law was over this past weekend with the kids and I knew she would enjoy falalfels with me in a pita pocket filled with a Greek salad then drizzled with EVOO.  YUMMY!

Enjoy xo

Cindy's Tip!  Keep dried seasonings handy.  Fresh herbs are easy to keep all year. Outside during the summer and bring inside and set near a sunny window for fresh herbs in the winter too!

Flax" vegan" Eggs

As I am preparing for Daniel Fast it was necessary to come up with another way to use "eggs" in my recipes.  Especially for binding.  I was told by a Vegan baker that she uses Flax seeds.  I tested it out and yes......  Works perfect.

Here are a few tips from my stumbles.  I will be adding this recipe link to keep it handy on multiple recipes for the Daniel fast and any Vegetarian recipes.

Tips:  Get a coffee grinder (about $9.99 or go to a thrift shop for $2)  You will use this every time you make your Flax eggs.  

Buy raw whole flax seeds and grind them fresh each time. Keep flax seeds in the refrigerator or freezer for storage.  

You may find there is a "nutty" taste but I think it's very subtle and have begun to enjoy the taste.

This recipe is per 1 egg.  If you need to use 2 eggs just double, 3 eggs just triple, you get it now......

Garlic Steamed Whole Artichokes

Our family loves artichokes.  It all started with my Nana. Every Easter and Christmas Eve she would be steaming a big pot of artichokes.  We would all be so excited to be sitting around the table eating them!  Of course, the heart is the best part but getting to it pedal by pedal it very exciting too.  My mother still makes artichokes and so do I.  

I enjoy them often.  I make 2 for myself - One for now and another for tomorrow (or tonight).  

You need to add tons of garlic in the leaves and drizzle with lots of EVOO.

Lentil and Quinoa Cakes with Herb Dressing

This recipe was created by left over lentils and extra ingredients I had during meal planning for the week.  I thought it would be perfect for our Daniel Fast. 

Here is the recipe for the Herb Marinade.

Chefs Tip:  If you are making lentils, quinoa or other grains and have left overs just put in a storage container then freeze.  You can pull them out when you want them again. That is what i did with the lentils.  They were left over from a few weeks ago and I pulled them out to use and this is what was created!

Note:  I used a large ice cream scoop to keep them the same size.

Spicy "Riced" Sweetheart Egg Bites

I have been over indulging in vegetables and just love it.  I had 1 head of both cauliflower and broccoli and wanted to use them up.  I decided to rice both of them in my food processor and create 2 recipes.  One is for these little spicy sweetheart bites for Valentine's Day and the other I am going to use in my stuffed cabbage. The recipe will be similar to this recipe except I am using ground ground turkey and the riced cauliflower/broccoli and not the zucchini.

I made these in mini-muffin tins.  I sprayed with coconut oil spray I found at Trader Joes
