It’s been about a month since I last posted a blog entry, and I do feel kind of bad about that. I thought it would be easy to keep a blog going, but unfortunately that is not the case. I find it much easier to post pictures and write a little caption, or quickly type out the recipe either on my Instagram account or my Facebook Page. I’m posting a blog this evening because I wanted to share an amazing recipe with you all and it would be way too lengthy to put on FB or IG.
SO! Let me not waist anymore time talking about ME. Tonight’s dinner was a paleo chicken salad on a paleo cauliflower bun, with paleo mayonnaise dressing.
For those of you that are not familiar with the Paleo Diet, I found a great source to give a basic definition of it. http://www.livestrong.com/article/440069-definition-of-the-paleo-diet/
I grabbed the recipe for the cauliflower bun from this amazing blog http://liverightbehealthy.blogspot.com/. Cassi has so many unique, healthy recipes that I cannot wait to try! I was ecstatic when they came out just perfectly. On so many occasions, I have failed when it comes to making patties and pancakes and because this recipe called to make it a similar way, I got a little scared. You really can’t go wrong if you follow the directions ;).
Paleo Cauliflower Bun
Serving size 1
1 Cup grated raw cauliflower
1 tbsp almond flour
½ tbsp coconut flour
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tbsp. rosemary (or oregano)
1/8 tsp salt
Shape into two circles onto a well oiled pan.
Cook at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove from pan and place on oven rack and broil for 5 minutes or until golden.
Place onto a cooling rack or it will get mushy.
This was incredibly easy to make. It’s not as thick as store bought mayonnaise but is more like a dressing.
2 egg yolks
1 tsp mustard
½ tsp minced garlic
3 tsp lemon juice
½ cup olive oil
salt & pepper
Add egg yolks, mustard, garlic, lemon juice, and salt and pepper to a food processor (I used my Magic Bullet). Begin to process and slowly add the olive oil until all is blended into a creamy consistancy.
2 tbsp olive oil
3 oz. finely sliced chicken
2 celery stalks – chopped
Mango – a couple slices
2 tbsp craisens
2 tbsp almond slices
In a large skillet, sauté all the ingredients for a couple minutes on low-medium heat. When finished, add the mayonnaise to the chicken salad and place on cauliflower bun.
