Cauliflower Fried Rice

Ingredients

1 cauliflower
2 tablespoons coconut oil divided
3 tablespoons tamari sauce
1/2 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
1 carrot sliced into small rounds
2 garlic cloves minced
1 tablespoon fresh ginger root chopped
1 cup frozen peas
1/4 green cabbage chopped
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 eggs beaten
2 green onions
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Instructions

Cut the cauliflower in half (or quarters if it's really big), remove the stem and core then shred it using the largest side of a grater so that it crumbles into what resembles grains of rice. If you’re using a frozen, bagged variety, open the bag and set it aside. Whisk the honey, tamari and rice vinegar together in a bowl then set it aside.

Heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the carrots, garlic, ginger and cook, stirring often, for 3-4 minutes until the carrot has softened slightly and the garlic is fragrant. If the mixture is sticking, add water, 1 teaspoon at a time so the carrots can keep cooking. Add the cauliflower, peas, cabbage, and sesame oil to the pan; stir fry quickly to cook the cauliflower to a soft texture that begins to crisp, about 4-7 more minutes.

Make a well in the middle, turn the heat down, and add the rest of the coconut oil, heating it for 30 seconds, then the eggs. Stir gently them continuously until the eggs are fully cooked and scrambled; about 2-3 minutes. Stir in the tamari, honey, vinegar mixture and coat the cauliflower rice by stirring it well. When the dish is finished cooking, garnish it with green onions and crushed red pepper flakes or any other herbs you prefer.

PALEO-KETO BREAD

Basic Ingredients

1 cup Blanched almond flour
1/4 cup Coconut flour
2 tsp Gluten-free baking powder
1/4 tsp Sea salt
1/3 cup Butter (or 5 tbsp + 1 tsp; measured solid, then melted)
12 large Egg white (~1 1/2 cups, at room temperature)

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 in loaf pan with parchment paper, with extra hanging over the sides for easy removal later.

Combine the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder and sea salt in a large food processor. Pulse until combined.
Add the melted butter. Pulse, scraping down the sides as needed, until crumbly.

In a very large bowl, use a hand mixer to beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.

Add 1/2 of the stiff egg whites to the food processor. Pulse a few times until just combined. Do not over-mix!

Carefully transfer the mixture from the food processor into the bowl with the egg whites, and gently fold until no streaks remain. Do not stir. Fold gently to keep the mixture as fluffy as possible.

Transfer the batter to the lined loaf pan and smooth the top. Push the batter toward the center a bit to round the top.

Bake for about 40 minutes, until the top is golden brown. Tent the top with aluminum foil and bake for another 30-45 minutes, until the top is firm. Internal temperature should be 200 degrees. Cool completely before removing from the pan and slicing.
