CAULIFLOWER PIZZA BITES

Ingredients

Cauliflower-Pizza-Bites.jpg

  • 1 1/2 cups grated cauliflower (approximately 1/2 large cauliflower head)
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic, 2 cloves
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
  • 3 large egg whites
  • Salt & pepper, to taste (I used approximately 1/4 tsp each)
  • 1/4 tsp. dried rosemary
  • 6 basil leaves, chopped fine
  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs 
*The number one thing I can tell you is to strain the cauliflower as best as you can.
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking/cookie sheet with parchment paper and place baking racks on top. Spray the racks with non-stick spray.
  2. Start by cutting your cauliflower in half. Measurements are based on using a large head of cauliflower. Cut the leaves and end of the cauliflower. Cut the cauliflower into small florets and toss into a food processor and process until the cauliflower reaches a rice/mashed potato look. It should be processed fine. The finer it is, the better the end result will hold together.
  3. Scoop the cauliflower into a cheesecloth or cloth napkin
  4. Place the cauliflower into the center of the cheesecloth, pulled the edges up, twisted to close and squeezed as much liquid as I could out of the processed cauliflower.
  5. It should have the look of rice/mashed potatoes. Place the processed cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl and cook for 4-6 minutes, stopping to stir halfway through.
  6. Once cooked, add the remaining ingredients and stir well.
  7. Using a tablespoon and a half tablespoon, scoop the bites into 1 1/2 tablespoons in size, and roll into balls. Place evenly apart on the prepared racks and bake for 20-23 minutes. At 20 minutes in, remove from the oven & rotate the bites. Place back into the oven for remaining 2-3 minutes.

Meatloaf for Mi Amor

We still can’t find turkey meat and Elliot’s never had meatloaf so here is an attempt at flavoring up a regular chicken mince loaf. It’s slightly low carb, relatively high in fat, but higher in protein… regardless not an everyday meal but a good one none the less.

You can funk this recipe up too: http://www.paleorunningmomma.com/buffalo-ranch-chicken-meatloaf-paleo/

Make it Mexican inspired, Italian… meatloaf is just a great base for anything.b58d7a26fe16e5f3692faeb2f892053a.jpg

 

Ingredients

  • 1 yellow onion, peeled, halved
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1/2 zuchini peeled & grated (squeeze out water)
  • 1 large carrot, roughly chopped
  • ½ large green pepper, roughly chopped
  • 1 large handful baby spinach
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme (or 2 teaspoons of fresh)
  • 1 teaspoon smokey paprika
  • 2 tbs grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 free-range or organic egg
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 500g chicken mince
  • 8 Rashers of thin streaky bacon

 

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 190℃.
  2. Finely, chop the onion, garlic, carrot, pepper and spinach. Add zucchini, place in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add the thyme, paprika, rolled cheese and egg and mix to combine. Add the chicken mince and squeeze together to combine the ingredients well.
  4. Line a 12 x 22cm greased (or lined with aluminum) loaf tin with bacon, proceed next carefully
  5. ONLY PLACE ON SIDES & TOP OF MEATLOAF- otherwise it will not cook evenly on the bottom. Overlap to cover base & sides of tin.
  6. Press the minced mixture in the tin (so it’s firmly packed), gently wrap the bacon around & sides of the mince.

  1. Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes, then uncover for the last 10 minutes.
