Well, not really… more like Pork Fried Cauliflower, but you would probably never know the difference.

Pork Fried Cauliflower Rice

Directions:

Place cauliflower in a pot to steam.  (Should steam for about 5-7 minutes).  In a large saucepan or wok add the grapeseed oil.  Cube your Pork cutlets and place in the pan to saute.

While meat is cooking, cut up your veggies and put aside.  When cauliflower is done, add to your food processor & process until the cauliflower resembles rice.

Add cut veggies to wok and mix in with meat.  Add both your Coconut liquid amino’s and Fish sauce & saute for about 3 minutes, then add the cauliflower rice.

Cinnamon Toast Crackers

By, kalebdf @flickr.com

MMmmmmm, who doesn’t love cinnamon toast?!  Well, I’d been craving something sweet and bread-like and conjured these little treats up yesterday… so delicious… try with some cream cheese or even flavored cream cheese on top!

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups Almond flour
  • 3 (or more) packets of Stevia: depending on your sweet tooth and your like/dislike of Stevia *If you like a more granular feel, try using Truvia*
  • 2 TBSP Cinnamon
  • 1/2 TSP sea salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 TBSP Grapeseed Oil

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350.  In a medium bowl mix dry ingredients together.  In a small bowl whip the eggs and grapeseed oil together; then pour into the almond flour mixture.

Grease two pieces of parchment paper and scoop 1/3 of your “dough” on the paper.  Place the second piece on top of your dough and press or roll the dough to about 1/16 of an inch thick.  Carefully remove top piece of parchment paper and cut your crackers into squares. *Optional:  Before you cut into squares, you can transfer the dough onto a greased cookie sheet (from the bottom piece of parchment); but this is not necessary.*

Bake for 12-15 minutes until the edges have browned and remove from the oven to let cool, and enjoy!

Makes about 60 crackers.

  • 3 Garlic cloves (chopped)
  • 1-2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup Onion
  • Optional seasoning: (if your italian sausage is not seasoned already; use thyme, rosemary, fennel)

Directions:  Drizzle 1 tbsp olive oil in heated pan with garlic & pine nuts & brwon.  Add italian sausage (without casing) in pan; saute and break into smaller pieces.  When sausage is just about cooked through add 1 tbsp (if needed) olive oil, onion, celery, watercress, eggplant, fennel & mushrooms.  Saute all ingredients until mushrooms and eggplant are cooked down.  Serve on own as stuffing or scoop into lettuce wraps for an hors d’oeuvre or meal.  Serves 4 – 6.
