Roasted Cauliflower Carrots and Zucchini

Posted on February 25, 2014

During winter I roast vegetables several nights per week. I learned in my Ayurvedic training during the early 1990’s that it’s important to adapt both cooking and eating to the seasons. Mostly, though, it’s just common sense to eat local root vegetables in the winter (this is one of my favorite carrot recipes) and to run a nice toasty oven on a cold evening.

Roasted vegetables are an amazing dish –affordable, easy to make, and quite healthy. One of the best  things about this Roasted Cauliflower, Carrots, and Zucchini is the beautiful mini-rainbow of colors the vegetables in this dish create.

So if you’re looking for a roasted vegetable recipe, take a peak at this one –it’s perfect for the most seasoned of chefs, as well as beginner cooks. Personally, I think this is the best way to cook zucchini and carrots… and cauliflower too!

Chicken with Cauliflower and Olives

Posted on March 4, 2013

This high-protein chicken dinner (full of cauliflower and olives) is a wonderful Paleo one pot meal.

This hearty, grain-free, savory Paleo dinner dish is a hit with adults and teens alike in our house. I often serve it with a Spinach Salad for a filling, vegetable heavy dinner.

While we eat chicken once or twice per week, I also try to serve the boys (all 3 of them) steak each week as that is their favorite dinner. They are more than happy when ... read more →

Paleo Shepherd’s Pie

Posted on March 1, 2012

 

Shepherd’s Pie is a traditional English dish. In Britain it is generally made with lamb or mutton; in this recipe I have made a simple ground beef shepherd’s pie and added bacon for extra flavor.

Shepard’s pie is often referred to as “cottage pie,” by the English; it is a casserole made of cooked meat and vegetables that is then topped with mashed potatoes and baked. I have made this dish into a Paleo casserole by using Mashed Cauliflower for the ... read more →

Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Posted on January 19, 2012

Creamy dairy free soup made with superfood cauliflower to warm you up on a cold night.

Soup is good food. Especially healthy soup made with a mere five ingredients.

This quick and easy Roasted Cauliflower soup recipe is one that I found in a recent issue of Bon Appetit. Except their recipe had butter and heavy cream; I’ve de-Paula Deened this recipe so that it is the pure delicious essence of a vegetable without all kinds of unnecessary other ingredients ... read more →

Paleo Dirty Rice

Posted on September 20, 2011

Using anitoxidant rich low-carb cauliflower, this dirty rice recipe makes one heck of a savory Paleo side dish.

For those avoiding starchy high carb foods such as white rice, cauliflower rice is a wonderful alternative that is highly nutritious.

When I posted my recipe for Cauliflower Rice a year ago, I received numerous requests for various flavored varieties of that dish. So when I opened one of my new favorite books, Paleo Comfort Foods and saw that they had a recipe for ... read more →

Mashed Cauliflower

Posted on November 8, 2010

A perfect addition to your Paleo Thanksgiving.

I’ve been making this mashed cauliflower recipe for several years now.  So I must be on the same page as my readers –when I posted my  Cauliflower Rice recipe I received suggestions from Jose and several others to make mashed cauliflower.

This cauliflower dish (which I make in place of mashed potatoes) is perfect for a gluten free, Paleo Thanksgiving.  I like to have something mashed and gooshy at Thanksgiving not only as a ... read more →

Cauliflower Rice

Posted on September 10, 2010

I mentioned in my Stuffed Peppers post the other day that I would give you all the recipe for my Cauliflower “Rice.”   Around here, we call it Cauli Rice, and I’m super happy that my husband and children like to eat it as much as I do.  Cauli Rice is a tasty, nutritious, grain-free, alternative to white rice for those of us that follow a Primal or Paleo eating plan.  Works for the Atkins people too.

I’ve been making Cauliflower Rice ... read more →

Mexican Chicken and “Rice”

Posted on July 17, 2009

This may be one of the worst food photos I’ve ever taken, however, this gluten free, grain free chicken and “rice” dish is packed with protein and spicy Mexican flavor.  It’s not so easy to take pictures of brown stuff; I could say more, however, I won’t go on; let’s just leave it at that.

Since I don’t eat grains, this faux rice is a real treat for me.  My husband liked it too.

No Potato Salad

Posted on May 11, 2009

This healthier gluten free potato salad is perfect for picnics and barbecues.  Replacing potato with cauliflower is a trick that I learned from the “low-carbers.”  And it is a good one!

In the winter, I often make mashed cauliflower in place of mashed potatoes.  Now, in spring, it is wonderful to have this no potato salad made from cauliflower.  We’ll be having it tonight with grilled turkey burgers and green salad from our garden.
